Fourty @#*!#%! Six
At least I can still do this:
However, it is advisable after a certain age to apply makeup before taking photographs in bright light. (Tidying up the background is a nice touch too.)
"The cowl?" you ask. I had to make the cowl because Ms. Fricknits says they are the new scarf, and I am a follower. It is a basic linen stitch. I'll write up the pattern if anyone wants it.
(Gratuitous close up of stitch pattern and the glorious Plucky Knitter's colors. [Colorway: Janis])
It was an all about me weekend. First there was the cowl. Then 18 holes of golf. Then dinner with my golf buddy/tax preparer/sommelier/tech support/the only guy who'd stick with me for 20+ years.
The next day there was the spinning of 4 oz. of Scout's Superwash Merino Roving. (Colorway: Power Couples)
The fiber arrived on Friday. Admit it, you wouldn't have been able to just tuck it away in your stash either.
Along with the spinning, there was more golf. Since I now have a locker at the golf club I had to crochet a key chain for my shiny new key. You know "had to". That bag full of sock yarn scraps does come in handy from time to time.
The weekend was nicely rounded out with Indian take out last night. One would think that I had all the free time in the world. I don't. I'm just really good at neglecting the things I should be doing. It also helps to have a fantastic family who indulges me.
Off to get a pedicure! ;) Hey, I can, it is my birthday after all.
