LOL! That shell skirt is going to be too cute!


Aargh-so many at once.

I started that bag yesterday too-regular Sugar N Cream in what I had on hand for colors-should be interesting.


Glad to see somebody else jumping into the Pacific waves shawl. I can't wait to see how it comes out


Wow! So many projects, but I know you're the woman who can get them all done.


Lots of pretty projects to keep you busy.


That's a seriously ambitious undertaking....great WIPS! I bet they'll be great.


I have 4 projects going at the moment - a knit shawl (worsted, size 15 needles) that will have a lace inner border; a rag-tag afghan; a dish or wash cloth for Cloths For Crisis and a {gasp} sock. Thanks for the comment - I'd have loved to read your paper on the Tudor women. I think the most interesting one I did in English history was the one on Queen Anne, the last of the Stuarts. I started out with the view that she'd been a figurehead and discovered that she was influencing events surely if subtly.


You are nothing short of amazing...casting on squillions of stitches? starting more than one project? finishing an amazing cardigan? It's official: You are a crafty super hero.

I was lovin' the skirt when I saw the pattern, but what do you plan to wear under it? I am not a seamstress. What would you suggest for non-sewers (lol!) out there?


Go Bron Go!

The amazing thing is thatyou will finish most of these........I am sure that I could start them but I guarantee I would never finish and I'd have a few more WIPs in my huge WIP pile


Wish me luck, everyone! It's seldom I have to start so many projects at once - I usually add them in as I go so it doesn't look so daunting!

Sara - One word: slip. I'd wear a slip under it if you're not going to line it. Do stores even sell slips any more??? I have no clue.

By the way, Sara - I'm still looking for that baby book - I haven't forgotten you!


Jane - That's why I've always loved women's history. Aside from the obvious affinity I have for women, it's fascinating to discover just how much power they really wielded & how they managed to function in male-dominated societies.


I am in awe of your talents and how fast you must work on your projects. I think your work is fantastic and it just urges me to dig out the yarn and the patterns and get to work on something. I love the shell skirt pattern in the crochet magazine. I wonder if you could tell me which issue it is in that maybe I could send away for that issue, if they do back issues. How many things do you complete in a month's time? I have crocheted since I was 12, but I can only knit one, purl one and I need to practice up on that so that I can knit too. I have no confidence in my knitting ability. I have a lot of knitting patterns I have saved up. I am actually a pattern junkie. I can't knit, but I have hundreds of knitting books. Sickness! Anyway, thanks for spurring me on to get busy and crochet. I happened by your blog while searching for a skirt pattern on the internet and read so many of your entries. You are really funny! Glad to have found you.


How's my cardi coming along? I think I hear Bianca calling. Woman cannot live by cardi alone, but they do work so well.
