Who you callin’ crazy?

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!

  2. That Joan is something else!

  3. I see no crazy. Unless you drop everything to try to keep up with her, of course. ;^)

    I have sock yarn in that color, btw.

  4. Crazywoman yarn from a crazywoman knitter to a crazywoman knitter. The cycle of life. Gorgeous stuff! Sweet indeed.

  5. The only crazy I can see here is that she actually gave away that yarn! What a generous friend.

  6. Crazy Woman is the name of a mountain range in Montana where Mountain Colors is dyed. But it’s fitting, no? 😉
