Stove Sparks and Other Stories
Last night my husband poked the burning osage orange wood and annoyed it.
It sparked for about ten minutes straight. It sounded like he was burning sparklers in there!
The sparks shot right out the narrow, half-closed slits of the door damper. Fortunately the stove sits on a concrete floor and they can't reach anything burnable.
(I also enjoy lightning, in case you were wondering.)
Hey, look! The Stargate, aka Soap Bubble Stole, has not been abandoned. I started knitting on it again, ummmmm, a couple of weeks ago.
I was getting nervous that I would run out of yarn before knitting the last couple of charts. I started looking around on Ravelry to find out the status of Elegant Yarn's Daphne and found not one, not two, but four yarns identical to the Daphne.
Three of them I'm pretty sure are identical. The fourth, Jojoland Harmony, is definitely identical.
I ordered it from The Yarn and Fiber Company on Monday and had two out of three balls (the third was back ordered) by Friday. Whew. Now I can knit and not wonder whether the yarn or the pattern will finish first.
