Yeah, yeah, yeah–one bolero sleeve is done. Maybe a picture of that exciting raglan number soon. Don’t
platz plotz with excitement kiddos. I haven’t actually watched too much Olympic coverage. I mean it’s okay for awhile, but the coverage is so chopped up you lose interest and move on to one of the 3000 other channels–hello American Idol–though it is fun to hear how to pronounce those Nordic names that are all hopped up on K’s and J’s.
I’ve also been becoming interested in this Patons leaflet, curiously called "Street Smart". I think there would be a few prison gang members who’d be a bit confused with that title…but hey, here’s hoping for that kinder gentler universe. That bobbly hoodie is very cute and the pullover with the gull wing-esque cabling is begging to be made a zippie hoodie. I tried to find this at the newly opened Michael’s in town, but alas, despite unearthing some horrible horrible yarns and patterns, this tasteful leaflet was nowhere to be found. The search continues.
Added later: I found this Patons leaflet at Joann.com and it’s even on sale for $3.99. You can get free shipping by entering code TAB60218 on any purchase with no minimum, so do it now if you want it (code valid from 2/18 to 3/3).
For those folks needing a laugh please go read The Panopticon’s 17 Feb entry. Please. Brilliant.
