Process, Not Product
Nice Poncho, Martha! Surely the most exciting fiber news of the week was the release of Martha and her fabulous poncho, made for her by a sister inmate (or, as the NY Daily News so delicately put it, a "crocheting con." According to Martha, this women crochets 12 hours a day. Hmmm.....Not much progress made on my own knitting this week. Still slogging away on Sam's sweater. Did a few rows on a lace scarf. Started and abandoned a prototype baby bootie--I was thinking of having a go at the angora booties in Last Minute Knits to delve into some precious bits of stash; I'm glad I did the prototype before getting tangled up with the fuzzy stuff. The booties are as cute as can be, but the pattern is much to complicated for such a little object (and working with double pointed needles is still like wrestling with a porcupine). Oh, well, process not product.
