It's really not Beelzebub's beard trimmings.
It's a mohair blend that my best muggle friend gave me, and she bought it for the color and the nice fuzzy softness.
It excels on both counts. You can't tell in these pictures, but it's a sort of peacock green, with subtle dark blue and gold spun in, so I get these gentle arcs of different colors in the shawl. It needs to be blocked and photographed outside for that to show up. I think it's going to make a beautiful piece of knitting (if I can quit screwing up and having to tink the stuff.)
This weekend, I'm going to a big quilt show with some friends here in town. I fear I may fall off the no-more-quilt-fabric wagon in possibly a dramatic and awful way.
I've got an idea for this fabric that my friend Janice brought me from Japan a few years ago. So while I wait for my enchiladas to cool so I can put them away (hooray! Hot lunches for us all week!) I think I might work on my giant flowered quilt and clear the decks for this one.
The Fool is off at Britches tonight, so when he gets home, perhaps I'll persuade him to report on events, and possibly talk about where the Cosmic Otters went over the weekend.
