'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'
My former secretary sent that to me today. Gotta love it.
Continuing in that vein...
Give a woman some yarn and....she'll knit you a sweater ...
As you may recall, J asked for a sleeveless lace hoodie. I thought I'd all but finished, but I think she grew, so I had to rip out the thing from the shoulders to the place where I'd split for the underarms, and add a repeat of the tilting ladders to make it long enough. Now... I'm wondering why it is that a hood seems to take as long as the whole freakin' body of the sweater...
It wasn't intended as a Winter Holiday present, but it's starting to look like it will work as one.
I'm taking turns between that, and this:
That's the Weekender Stole from Crystal Palace Yarns. I'm working it in the oh so yummy Panda Silk. I want lots of Panda Silk. It's my favorite thing about this pattern (that and it's so easy it is now my mindless take along knitting).
The weekender went with me last night to hear my daughters' choir sing.
They were wonderful. C even had a sort of solo (three girls shared it -- but to be honest, I could only hear her).
It was a nice concert... and because it was actually a joint concert with all three middle schools' choirs, the stole grew quite a bit.
Tonight it will have another chance for growth: It's band concert night.
