Oh, holidays! I was born for holidays! After a week off work I actually have the mental bandwidth to post to my blog! Well, that's one excuse: the other is of course Ravelry, which is the fiber lover's new DRUG, extremely addictive.
Despite the annoyance of having to actually work ugh and worse still, think about work problems even when not working, I have been crocheting. Just enough to stay sane. Not enough to make the new Interweave deadline for submissions!
Here's what I did: my Guantazo!
Here's what else I did: a hat! ETA: I forgot to mention something really important: this hat was designed by Annette Petavy! I just added the band of jacquard.
Wow. What a day. I left this post half-finished and sped off to Barcelona where I made a special detour to Persones Llanes. I saw the wonderful, delightful, funny and giggly Tura who I swear said her first word in my presence: "Ball-Winder!" And then, in walks my long-lost Pushka! And as if this were not enough, she informs me that today, which is a Wednesday and not a Monday, there's a Special Session of my even more Long-Lost Barcelona Knits! We braved the drizzling rain and went thither where I saw some old friends and made some new ones.
