Quote for the Day
"Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it." Terry Pratchett

If you want to take part in 'counting and categorising the light', log on to Galaxy Zoo. It may take a while to load as there has been a dramatic increase in traffic this morning due to an item on breakfast TV.

Thank you for all the kind comments about the lacy shrug. I'm still convinced that it's not special enough for a wedding. On the needles at the moment is a Feather and Fan stole that might just do.

It's in a variegated Posh Yarn called 'Blues' and it's about 50% completed.

What a pretty pattern! I liked the stole as well and thought it went well with the dress. Do you have a fancy hat?

Beautiful! I did a Fan & Feathers wrap for a friend a few months ago-it's a great pattern.

Thank you. I'm enjoying the pattern. It suits the yarn so well.

Are you on Ravelry? I have the same screen name there.

I have a 'special ocassion' hat. It's a very pale blue and I'm planning to trim it with a navy and white scarf to match the dress.

Oooh that is pretty! The shrug was lovely too, but I think this is nicer :)

I just wish yarn was cheaper so that I could knit more. I saw a lovely pattern for a jumper for Beth today but it would cost about £40 to buy the yarn :(

You could always substitute a different yarn. I've been buying 'Posh' for the past year or soand building up a stash of matching colours for larger projects. Then along comes the need to use a couple of skeins and the project goes on the back burner again.

There is something very sad about that Pterry quote.

Very prophetic, I know. It was at the front of my mind as I watched the documentary.

That looks horribly complicated *stares* but I like the colours.
18th-Feb-2009 09:04 am (UTC)
It's not compplicated at all. 4 rows make up the pattern and 2 of them are purl all the way. The other 2 rows are repeats of 18 stitches that make the feather and fan. The yarn demanded to be used on this project.

That sort of wisdom and insightful-thinking from Sir PTerry makes his bloody illness even more shattering.

I've not seen any of the second part of the documentary - though I watched most of the first part on i-player. I'm not sure I want to see it, and yet I feel I owe it to him...

Gorgeous knitting, btw - and glad to see you got some violent creams for Valentine's Day!

That quote sent a chill down my spine as I watched part 2. You really should watch it.

I haven't eaten any of the chocolates yet. I'm trying to lose a bit of weight to get into a wedding outfit, so I thought I'd save them and combine the over-indulgence of Valentine's Day with our anniversary on St David's Day.
