First things first: In my travels through the KnittingHelp Web Ring today -- a short journey, to be sure, as we were busy as little beavers today with our school work -- I found this fun little quiz on Knitting Nelly's blog. Now, I'm not an Edward Gorey fan -- I've not read any of his books -- but it looked like a fun quiz, and I found the results humorous:
The Lavender Leotard
You have been through quite a bit and although at times clumsy, you always handle yourself with grace.

And, more importantly ... Strike Up The Band ... the yarn for my Einstein Arrived!!! It's very soft, although a slightly different color than I expected. I expected the "raspberry" color, but not the charcoal grey. I still like it, though!
On a final note, I've finished my 5th Oregon Tote. Sadly, I'm just not as excited about this one as the others I've done. I think the let-down is coming from the handles, though, and that's easily fixable. So, I will possibly re-knit them. Oh, and this one was done in KnitPick's WOTA -- blueberry & daffodil. As usual, I double-stranded the yarn. It's weird how the Lamb's Pride shrinks more from top to bottom and the WOTA shrinks more from side to side. When I am ready to make my own Oregon Tote, I think I'll opt for the Lamb's Pride. It felts up much more solidly than the WOTA. Oh, and I forgot to take a picture of this one before felting. So, here is the finished product.
