Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Spoiled for Choice

I'd been trying to pick out something to knit for Bell's Long Lacy Summer KAL, dithering through book after book, and finally I heard my great-grama's voice in my head, saying, "You're spoiled for choice, young lady!"

So I just picked something. It's not as though I can't pick something else later, sheesh.

This is Nr. 5 from page 42 of the Christine Duchrow book I bought at the fiber festival this summer.

Everything's Better with Purple?I overdyed some yarn with a union dye, and in order to use up the contact dye, yes, Mom, that is the t-shirt you gave me for my birthday. I needed something light-colored and cotton, and it was "Tag, you're it!" on the t-shirt.

What? Wait, lemme see if I've got this straight... picking what to knit next doesn't actually mean that you'll never have a chance to knit all the stuff you didn't pick?!?

Brilliant!

I had a hard time,too. I thought of it as an embarassment of riches. And had the same duh moment when I realized I could knit one now and one later.....
You'd think we were smarter than that!

Spoiled for choice is right -- isn't it funny how we panic about making a choice to use up the yarn, when there's always another project waiting around the corner?

"Spoiled for choice." What a wise woman your granny was. It seems to be hereditary, too. So what will this round lace thing be?
