Excuse my absence from the blog: I’ve been too ashamed by my complete failure at the 2008 Ravelympics to show my face. I’m still less than half done with the Bamboo Garden scarf.
But I learned my lesson: knitting a complicated, double-knit, DK-weight scarf in two weeks is not possible when you have six relatives from Hungary visiting for the duration of the Ravelympics. The good news is that I had a great visit with my foreign family, and I see them so rarely that it was worth not crossing the finish line.
And now I present to you girls burning yarn:
This is what happens when you mix three crafty ladies and a bottle of champagne. Yes, it’s so very scandalous. We were celebrating my roommate’s birthday, and we got to talking about whether bamboo yarn was appropriate for baby knits because it’s supposedly very flammable. This led to our very unscientific burn test. (We had a fire extinguisher next to us, ’cause we’re careful like that.)Then we went out to a bar in Hollywood. Then we had a pillow fight in our underwear. Okay, that last one was a lie for the menfolk…
