Ms. Joan’s plate is quite full, but somehow she manages to fit in dessert – complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top – and then give it all away. Over the weekend she managed to raise a considerable sum for the children of Darfur, ream out a hapless busybody who falsely accused her of running trespassers off her property, and knit about 45 miles of lace (I’m merely assuming this last bit – maybe she knit more).
If that’s not enough, look what showed up at my house on Friday, just in time to cheer up a crummy day.
From Joan. Who has nothing else to do. The yarn is Mountain Colors silk/wool laceweight in the Crazywoman colorway. The shawl pin is just exactly what I needed and the acorns are precisely what I would have chosen for myself.
Also in the package was an errant Spring, 2008 IK containing the pattern for my next lace project. Apparently that was a popular issue here in Milwaukee and the yarn stores were cleaned plum out, but Buffalo came up trumps.
I leave it to you to decide who, in this scenario, is the crazywoman.
Happy Monday all!
