So we're strolling through Target on Saturday afternoon, looking for new bedding for Diana. (She and Eva have been sharing a room, but it's time to split them up, so everyone gets some new decor.) This experience has driven us all to new heights of exasperation.
As we come upon a display of striped jersey sheet sets, in kind of an astonishingly bright green stripe, Suzanne says to Diana, "What do you think of those?"
Diana considers them a moment and then rejects them thus: "You just want me to get them because they have that bag that makes a good knitting bag."
Meanwhile, preparation goes on apace for the Handpaint Studio. For the series of articles on working with handpainted yarns, I'd appreciate any pictures you'd care to send of projects you weren't happy with. Striping, blotching, whatever color effect you didn't anticipate and didn't appreciate--I need examples to discuss what goes wrong and how to avoid it. (Not that I don't have a few myself. But I'd like to think there are more mistakes out there than I've made.) Send them to lisa at rosiesyarncellar dot com. I'll be happy to preserve your anonymity if you'd prefer.
