Warning: This post is not for the faint of heart. It contains:
Sharp Pointy Sticks
A Double Bass
Drivers (two kinds)
A Hoe (you decide which kind)
Angry Tennis Players
My Legs (ahhhhhhh!)
And Lots and Lots of yarn. . . .
Now, if you are still with me, let's meet the Team!
This is Kirsten and Birch. After grueling contract negotiations, and a bit of a roving eye, they have agreed to work together toward the common goal of finishing the Amazing Lace. They have both agreed that Rowan Kidsilk Haze will join them as the yarn.
Kirsten has admired Birch for quite a while. In her wanderings around Blogland, she has drooled over the finished Birches of many talented knitters. Not that she didn't consider other projects.
But she always knew it would be Birch.
They plan to travel together this summer.
To places far,
Distractions will abound,
Other projects will call out to Kirsten,
Dirty dishes will pile up,
The laundry will reach epic proportions.
The lure of the dye pot could draw her away from Birch,
Her kid's music lessons and performances will need her attention.
But Birch is a strong project, it will call her back. It will urge her to knit where other knitters fear to knit.
At the local watering hole,
While operating heavy machinery,
(Don't try this at home.)
On the golf course,
In the garden,
And on the tennis court.
(Some of these locales will be more successful than others.)
Most importantly, Kirsten and Birch will have strong group support.
They are looking forward to the challenge, and to sharing their travels, successes and failures, with the other particpants of the Amazing Lace!
