Last week I knitted my modified version of “Pretty Thing” by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I used just over half a skein of Woolybuns (Chris’) gorgeous hand dyed yarn, featuring her own bunny hair as part of the blend. It’s very soft! Pattern modifications included adding another repeat in the round to make it wider and doubling the length so it could be pulled up to serve as a hood too.
One cool “Thing” about making “Pretty Thing” is that there’s enough of this delightful yarn left to make another “Pretty Thing”. Next time I’ll follow the actual instructions though.
Another cool “Thing” I discovered was that the bright sunlight over-exposed the pictures, thus masking out my wrinkles! Yee and haw!
A surprising “Thing” at our house is that we’ve all grown quite fond of this rather large spider who lives outside out kitchen window. We enjoy watching her (we’re guessing at the sex) eat breakfast and repair her web.
It’s hard to tell from the picture, but she’s really BIG. She also has a “Ghetto Booty”. Gotta love that! Of course, if this monstrosity appeared inside the house the girls and I would scream bloody murder until my DH fulfilled his duty… which in this case would consist of removing the creepy crawly.
Roxie and Bonny continue doing the avoidance “Thing”. There haven’t been any all-out wars though and we’re still hopeful that they’ll become the best of friends. In the meantime everyone is making extra efforts to give Bonny special attention.
Hope everyone did their own “Thing” to celebrate Veteran’s Day. Thank you to everyone who’s ever served. Because of your sacrifice we were able to stay home and do nothing today. Seriously… not everyone gets to enjoy such luxuries. Cheers!
