I usually have a pretty quiet life with lots of alone time, but today was really lonely. Phylly is out of town this weekend, and although she still wouldn't be here with me even if she wasn't out of town, I am still lonelier. How crazy is THAT!?
I used to talk to Barbara a LOT and tell her all my troubles. I would ask her questions about why this, and why that. I could tell her anything and trust her to keep it to herself. I had a dog named Jolly too, but he was a terrible listener. I think he got hit by a car, and then I got another dog named Jolly. Everybody in our house had a "J" name except my Mother's fish. She bought 3 fish one time and she named them "Fido", "Fuzzy" and "Fooch". They had a little fish bowl, and I think they all died, or got flushed -- or both.
I turned one of Peggy Sager's videos on earlier today, and I found myself talking to her on my computer monitor. The subject was knits. First she said that you can pull a knit from either end or side and it will ROLL to the RIGHT side. Then she said that was wrong, and when you pull it it will roll to the WRONG side. Then she said that was wrong too, and it really pulls to the RIGHT side. I was screaming, "Make up your mind!" Then I picked up a piece of my current knit project and pulled it and pulled it. It curled to one side one time -- and it curled to the opposite side the other time -- so I don't know what side is right.
I tried to take a picture of the top she was wearing that she made. It had the prettiest adorable neckline on it, and I am going to try it.
I copied a link to her video so you can see the blouse neckline for yourself. Here it is:
Then I looked in all my drawers for something THIN to loop through all those slits. The thinnest thing I had here is 3/8" grosgrain ribbon -- WAY TOO WIDE -- but it is all I had. I tied a knot around every section like Peggy said she did. It looks pretty awful, but I will try it again when I get something skinnier. Looks like a trip to a fabric store is mandatory! Here is the not-so-lovely outcome, but you get the idea.
