Knitting and Crocheting Blog Week~~A Mascot Project~~4KCBWDAY2
Your task today is to either think of or research a project that embodies that house/animal. It could be a knitting or crochet pattern – either of the animal itself or something that makes you think of the qualities of that house.
Alternatively it could be a type or colour of yarn, or a single button. Whatever you choose, decide upon a project and blog about how and why it relates to your house/creature.
What in the hive is a bee to do?
I decided to buzz about around Ravelry and found this.
Ah! doilies! I love them so. The thin thread and the steel needles. They are so pretty, just works of art all. I've been through my bouts of doilimania--here, here, and here. Perhaps it is time to do a new one.
While I have a small collection of old Decorative Crochet and Magic Crochet magazines (with a Crochet Fantasy thrown in for good measure), I didn't have this one, so I brought a copy on Etsy.
...And I dug up some size 2o DMC Cebelia an a size 8 (1.5 mm) steel needle. The pattern calls for a size 7 (1.65mm) with size 10 thread, so I want to go smaller. Naturally, I want and cannot find a 9 (1.4 mm), so I'll buy one. Perhaps, I'll stick with the 8.
Thanks already to the blog week for the inspiration!
To "B" or not to "B"
Lords and ladies, all good greetings be upon you and your house this fair morn. 'Tis a noble enterprise (and devoutly to be wished) to have on this occasion, a celebration of the day when one known to us as the Bard emerged glorious (not untimely ripped) from his beauteous mother's womb some 22 score and 9 years ago.
Therefore and anon, let us rejoice by enunciating the lexicon as to the manner born!
Gentle people, I bid you adieu.
Since I can't get Sir Patrick to record my Shakespearean birthday message, here's a video that ties "Bs" and the Bard together.
