Ah, squishiness! I love fun yarn! The wool/mohair blend is totally cool. Even with the many shades, it's still managing to work up in subtle stripes. I like this. I'm working on the body of the future felted bag tonight, forty stitches on size 11's. Gonna be a small bag, just right for toting sock projects. Gotta hit the LYS tomorrow when I meet J, I want to make a color match for the handle. Solid for that rather than multi.
This is a "cakes out the wazoo" weekend! Baby shower and a Sweet 16 for Saturday, plus a birthday cake on Sunday. And this is in conjunction with tons of music. The baby shower is for my sister's best friend. Something with Winnie the Pooh. The Sweet 16 is for a niece. Hot pink and silver. Girly. The birthday cake promises to be the most fun. It's for the head of a recycling department, so the cake theme is recycling, too. I'll make it look like the leftovers of several cakes stuck together on the same plate. Ha! The idea came from one of the ladies at the garden party. Brilliant!
This weekend is Shrimp Boil. K, a great guy, has made the preparations for the big "eat seafood and play music until we collapse" party, and we're gonna be there! Sunday afternoon is a different story. That's gonna be a band performance. Our bass player recently lost a client to cancer of the brain. The man was only 45! His last wishes were for his wife to throw a luau for their friends, so we'll be doing our very best to help carry out the plan.
Other than that, things are pretty good. I need to work up costumes for six cast members and feed Captain Oblivious to the stash weasels, but that's for another day.
If you're reading this, do me a favor. Tell me where you're from, and why it's special. Ta!
