First of all, I would like to thank everyone for your lovely comments on my top. Every single one of them brought a big fat smile to my face! Really, I think everyone of you could design your own sweater. It is just a matter of time and brain power. And personally, knitting from a pattern requires a lot less figuring.
Speaking of figuring, my silver belle is coming along. I have both sleeves finished, and have decided to put the peplum back on the needles in order to make the body longer. I have already used the required 14 balls and had to have my sister send me an emergency shipment. She was going to make it, but has now decided against it. (Believe me, she will be asking to borrow mine.) This sweater seems to be eating my yarn. If you are going to make this and are going to use cashmerino, I recommend buying extra, just in case. I have joined the KAL, and it really is great to see the progress everyone else is making.
Last night the five of us gathered around the computer remembering Pavarotti. I couldn't help but think how reminiscent that was of families long ago. Huddled around a radio listening to a show. I thought, how far have we come, but have we? I wonder when my grand kids are born, how will families get instant news? Off a large computer on the wall, with a remote? Just a little weekend thoughts to ponder. Go listen, it will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
