Weekend Wrap up
A few weeks before the Seasocks Cruise, I decided I needed a black wrap and picked out the Gale Stole as a quick and easy one to do. That, and the pattern is supposed to evoke "gusting ocean breezes" which turned out to be a good prediction of our cruise weather conditions:
Unfortunately, being a slow knitter with poor time management skills, I ended up about 3-4 repeats short and never finished it in time to wear on the Cruise. Disappointed, I tossed it aside and let it sit in the corner and finally, while watching the Sex & the City Movie on Saturday night, I finished it up:
It also has so many mistakes in it, it's rather embarrassing, so I'm glad it's black.
In non knitting news, I took my Mother to see the Dale Chihuly Exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. The sculptures were so cool and we had a great time. I thought my photos came out pretty fabulous until I realized that the the exhibit had fabulous lighting and that every one's photos stood a good chance of coming out fabulous. Don't believe me? Go to flickr and search under "Chihuly"
Still, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could light your latest yarn purchase like this?
Or display them like this?
These reminded me of glass knitting needles:
