Like the shawl better?!
Noro Silk Garden Sock - S245
6/0 Crystal AB glass beads
Turbo Addis Lace Needles - US5 or 3.75mm
58" x 27"
BadCat doesn't recommend beading Noro, but you know me, just had to do it! It was a pain in my headache and I wouldn't do it again. I like the multi-colors & shine of the silk & beads & the weight of the shawl. It's very cozy and I will be keeping it for myself. Thanks Badcat! :)
In Mr K's world, there's the usual silliness...
"Pumpkin pie?! NOooooo!"
That would be a rice scooper for his beak...
and yes, we spared his pumpkin.
You should have seen him storm off with his pumpkin! heehee!
Here's a story, since I haven't shared any lately.
I was sitting in my chair knitting, minding my own business, when I smelt something and walked into the kitchen to find the stove's back burner red hot. I turned it off, marched down the stairs, opened the door and gave Wooly 'the look.'
He immediately shuts downs his bagpipes and says, "What?! What's wrong?" I say, "You trying to burn the house down again?!"
We march up the stairs while he mutters about how he was burning the grease off the burner.
We get to the stove and I say, "I turned it off for you, but you can see how hot it was..." He says, "Well, I moved everything around it away..." and does his 'gift of the gab routine.'
I smack him on his head.
Wooly says, "What. I couldda had a V8?!"
I start laughing and say, "No, you cannot multi-task! If you turn on the burner, you have to stay in the kitchen until you turn it off! You're lucky I was home to smell it!"
Wooly says, "Well, it happened before, it happened today, and will happen again!!"
(Isn't that just the last thing you want to hear?!)
The next day, I say, "Hey Wooly..."
He's marching up the stairs and says, "What? WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT???!!!!!"
I ask, "What are you yelling at me for?"
Wooly, "Because you're gonna yell at me again!!"
I ask, "Did you do something that deserves being yelled at?"
Wooly, "No, but you yelled at me yesterday...(turns his back to me, does his winey voice and continues gabbing)
When there's finally a pause I ask, "You want some cheese with that wine??!!"
Wooly: (no comment-rare silence)
Me: "Did you get it?"
Wooly: "smurk, heehee! Gawd! Where do you get these things??!!"
Okay, I never yelled at him.
Oh! and I got myself into Ravelry as Miyamojo. I guess I've got to get a Flicker account to download photos??! Why? Why can't I just download from my computer like Blogger? I don't want another account... no, I don't want any cheese! ;)
Have a great week! I started my Christmas knitting and will share next time. I'm off to do the Thanksgiving feast! :)
