This is how gosh-durn lazy I am right now. I’m on the couch, computer on my lap, knitting to my right, phone to my left, and I just took a picture of my knitting with the crap-qual camera-phone, instead of getting up to take a high-resolution photo. But that’s the way it goes on Monday mornings (which are my version of your Sunday mornings. Only I get a Sunday morning with Lala, too, now that I’m not getting up at 6am to go train. I’m spoiled.)
So here’s the pattern I’m working on:
It’s the bottom band of a vee-neck sweater I’m making — the sleeves, already done, have the same motif at the ends. The yarn is a wonderful alpaca from ArtFibers called Jadis. It’s going to be a store model for them, and Kira wrote the pattern using their program, to which I added the colorwork.
I’m boring. Sleepy. Lazy. Oh, yeah.
Helped sister Christy move this weekend, into an apartment on Ivy Hill in Oakland that I absolutely covet. I mean, if I didn’t have my own sweet little home, I would, for the first time in memory, be jealous. You walk into the foyer, and there are dark carved wooden support beams with iron-work detail. Big, dark slate floors, and inlaid ceilings. Then you walk down the hall (which is the best-smelling hall ever, spice and cocoa and a little Trader Joes-ish), and her door, get this, her door is a dark wood arch with ROPE around the outside, as are all the doors in the castle/ship building.
Inside, she has this amazing green tile in the kitchen that should be hideous, but is gorgeous instead, and a huge living room with windows that overlook all the roofs near the Parkway, and she has a tub with a window over it, and a big ole bedroom with a big ole closet, and let’s not forget the gigantor closet in the living room that has two doors that used to house (and sadly doesn’t anymore) a Murphy bed.
Oh. Oh, oh, oh. She deserves it. I fear, however, that when Bethany comes into town later this week, Christy will no longer be living alone.
All right. Off to give Digit the love he says he’s never received, ever.
