A Shout-Out to Blogless Wanda and My New Friend

Remember this blog post? Blogless Wanda--I don't know who you are or how to get in touch with you, but many, many thanks for your explanation about yarn weight and yardage. Makes a whole lot of sense. Are you in the business? Are you really blogless? Anybody know Wanda's identity? I just love a mystery!

Speaking of mysteries, my beaded project doesn't have to be kept a secret anymore. In fact, I could have revealed the pattern about a week ago, but since I was too preoccupied with a certain adorable granddaughter, I missed the pattern unveiling. Celaeno is the latest offering from Romi Hill. It's part of a collection of what will eventually be seven shawls with some bonus goodies thrown in. I loved knitting Celaeno, but I shouldn't be using the past tense just yet--I have a couple of rows to go. It will be finished soon, because I plan on wearing it when I go to London, Ontario next week. I'd post a photo of my progress but lace all scrunched up on needles really isn't much to look at. Admire Romi's finished Celaeno instead, then go to Romi's website and buy the eBook subscription, or check her out on Ravelry if you're a member.

DD stayed home from school today, so I did what any mom with a sick teen does--left the house. There were some things I had some errands to run, namely buy more Cold Snap, and stop by DD's school to pick up some homework. Her locker is still so tidy and organized, it's a little scary. You'd know what I mean if you saw her room. It's like split personalities.

I'm still managing to dodge the bug that's going around DD's school but I've washed my hands so often and doused myself with so much hand sanitizer, my skin is permanently wrinkled. Can't be too careful, though. Don't want to contaminate my yarn.

Giving a shout-out to my new friend and neighbor, Cpeezers at Home. Check out the story on her blog. It really is a small world!


  1. That's a beautiful shawl. I have been looking at Romi's new e-book pattern on Ravelry & I think you have just convinced me I have to have it.

  2. Love Blogless Wanda's helpful comment and the mystery which surrounds her!

    I have Romi's blog in my google reader. I haven't read it much, but it definitely sounds like I need to. The shawl you are working on is going to be beautiful!

    Thanks for the shout-out! A trip to Ontario also sounds wonderful!

  3. Oh my gosh, it's GORGEOUS!!!!! But I DO want to see your shawl all scrunched up on the needles. Then I can appreciate the transformation once it's all blocked and even more lovely!

  4. what Karen said - scrunched is better than nothing!!! And, BTW - I am sooooo jealous that you have a new friend/neighbor. I want to come to CO and live next door to you!

  5. Lovely shawl. I can't wait to see your finished one. Scrunchy shawl pictures are good. Is it heavy with all those beads?

  6. Beautiful shawl...

    Wow, what a coincidence with your new neighbor!!!


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
