Play Date

FiestyWench came over this afternoon and bought her new wheel, the lovely Ms Rose along for a play date.

Unfortunately Bear and I are still having issues regarding suitable chew toys so Ms Charlotte Sheridan refused to play and stayed in the spare room ... I knitted instead. I still haven't cast on with the Olympic yarn - which FW got to pat - but 't'will probably happen tomorrow. I'm leaning towards the Broad Ripples . In the meantime I'm nearly finished this top for Riley : FW did
offer me a turn on Rose [ or is she Rosie?] but she's still too new and pristine.
I almost felt the need to humble myself at her feet ... I mean pedals ... "we are not worthy. we are not worthy"
Maybe next time.
I nearly had heart failure when FW and I popped outside for a while and Bear decided to taste test the handpainted merino roving. Luckily he left the wheel alone.

As a side note -we have discovered even more similarities on this visit - musical tastes, health issues, you name it, so now poor FW has a clear vision of the person she may turn into in a couple of decades.
Be afraid my sweet
Be very afraid

Far out luv, I reckon if I look like you an a few years, and have half as much energy as you do, I'll be doing spectacularly well!

The olympic yarn is spectacular! I am always reminding my daughters when they make fun that I am what they will grow into.....they are not amused.

I wanted to knit that infant /child sweater when I saw the pattern in one of the knit mag sidebars. You did a great job. VERY cute
