I designed a cow blanket yesterday
Now, in your imagination, I am quite sure that you just visualized a white blanket with big black splotches. Then, perhaps, you wondered if it was going to be for a baby, or would it be full sized?
In fact, the blanket will be FOR a cow. Well, for Jesus actually. Jesus in the form of a cow.
She's going to knit this blanket on great big needles, and out of Sari Silk Ribbon (which comes in some beautiful colours, and has a sparkly silver strip down the middle), and then she will take it to an ashram in India for a celebration. It's going to have fluffy loops on two, perhaps three, edges. That cow is going to be a thing of beauty. I wonder if it will be in a parade?
That same day I was processing incoming orders, when I saw the colours of two back ordered yarns.
I kid you not.
Just in case you thought that working in a yarn store is boring, I have to straighten you out. It isn't. Sometimes you have cowblanketdingleberry days.
The sleeping isn't dire, but it's not great either. Somewhat better is what I'd call it... but last night I (without a thought) had a piece of organic chocolate. I 'felt' it immediately, and realized that I have a bit of chocolate almost every night, an hour or two before bed. I think that is the end of that.
