I just want to start this one off with a big THANK YOU to Danielle. The woman's bloody amazing. She's got a heck of a to-do list. That Lacevember thing that she's co-hosting? Over 100 people. Yet it still comes into her mind to send over a Flickr Pro account? I bow to her wonderfluous amazingness (yes, I'm making up words to express how truly great she is).
So I played with Flickr last night and started putting things into sets. That pro account was great motivation for me to take a look and see what you can really do with flickr. And I put together this set today. From the trip to Xi'an I took last week. Jen, note that according to this site the Banpo Neolithic Village is about 6,000 years old and is a matriarchal community typical of Yangshao Culture (the Wikipedia entry is highly sparse). Does this fulfill the requirements of going to see a matriarchal community? I went. But they went years ago. (Bad joke, I know!)
On to knitting content, I'm stalled on a couple of things currently. The Kerry Blue Shawl is progressing...
But it's also going to be too small if I knit the pattern as written and I think the lace will lose its impact if I just make it bigger. So that's in time out.
And the Somewhat Cowl (or what I like to call the bane of my existence).
That foldy bit by the armpit? Yeah, that's driving me crazy. It's there on the front and the back. It's driving me crazy. So I think it's going to end up sitting in the closet until I get the nerve to frog it. AGAIN.
But I did make some progress. Meet Hedera number 1.
