So, Where Were We?

Thank you for all the thoughtful comments on yesterday's post. You've restored my faith that people of good will can indeed work together. I wish the best of all possible luck to President-elect Obama: he's going to need it. I may have more to say about this later, but for now, let's give politics a well-deserved rest.


I'm currently knitting a Pine Street Inn square from a bright-orange ball of Rowan Cork that was in the $1 bin at the Classic Elite outlet last time I was there. I adore this yarn, even in bright orange. It's chain-plied, 90/10 merino/nylon, dense yet springy, and very soft. I am doing my best to resist the temptation to go online and order all the Cork I can find in my favorite colors. Maybe after the knit-a-thon. (Honey, are you reading this? I'm just kidding. I think.)

Have I mentioned my fundraising page? Oh... I guess I have, once or twice. In case you somehow missed it, I do have such a page, on which I'm trying to raise at least $500 for Pine Street Inn. Every knitter who makes a $10 (or more) donation will be put in a drawing for a little something, possibly involving Cork yarn. Definitely involving at least some kind of yarn, and let me assure you that there are all kinds of excellent yarn in my stash. I know this because I keep going through it for suitable square yarn. So, c'mon, donate if you haven't already. You'll be glad you did.

  • Yanno, I've never knit with a Rowan yarn. I may have to get in on that. ;)
