The Box and Cable sweater is coming along. Here is the current progress:
The 'V' will be behind my neck (where the piece 'splits' to form the front) and then it just hangs no buttons or anything, no real neckline). And the cable continues down the sleeves.
So yeah, interesting. I keep having to look at the picture to remind myself how it looks.
I sometimes mock the "Craft Gossip Newsletter" here (and will continue to do so!) but today's newsletter provided an interesting idea, particularly for quick holiday gifts:
This is a crocheted coaster and it is pretty cute. I don't crochet but I could easily make this as a knit square. It is done with cotton yarn, and the full crochet pattern is here.
And just so I get a bit of mocking in: this was also featured today. You print this out and put it in a frame and your Thanksgiving decorating is done.
Last night was the symphony. It was an interesting program (I guess my word today is interesting). Two pieces I loved: The Brandenberg (sp?) Concerto and a Mozart piece (German dances). One piece I kind of liked---Bernstein's "Fancy Free" (it is Bernstein's---centennial? Of his birth? And lots of orchestras are doing Bernstein stuff) . The fourth piece was contemporary and it was interesting (there's that word) and some of it was lovely and other parts were weird.
Here is a little video of a rehearsal that will share what the group was like (it is only a minute long).
I'm off to meet my friend Lauren and then come home and knock out what needs knocking out.
