Kamati and Smoothie (backup) have been 'taken' by my latest purchase. So much so, that they've been singing...
(oo) "What you want?
(oo) Mommy I got!
(oo) What you need...
(oo) Do you know we got it?
(oo) All you want is...
(oo) Is a cone of Shetland Supreme Cobweb! (just a little bit!)
Hey Mommy! (just a little bit!) Start knitting with it! (just a little bit!)
Mommy! (just a little bit!)...
If they had their way, Ms Franklin would never be forgotten! Try explaining to them how she wasn't part of the Supremes! *ahem*
I did swatch with it. Recognize this from Blue Blob Blunder? Yes, I'm going to attempt Unst again. I've got to admit that I never forgot or got over that blunder.
I want to honor those Shetland knitters by continuing the tradition. :)
Pipers Field Trip
Wooly and 3 other American pipers invaded Canada this weekend to play in the parade. Can you tell which 4 are the Americans and which 2 are the Canadians? The Americans are full of hot air.
The Canadians love them because they're a band all by themselves. Wooly said it was fun because all the guys were really good 'in the day' and still are. He loves playing in Canada because the crowd goes wild and actually is disappointed when they finish a tune. There were 11 pipers and lots of drums, so they were really loud and exciting.
What's blooming at my house?
