At Arm's Length

Only one seam left to sew (the arm - my bad bad bad pun title) -- finished product unveiled tomorrow!

Tonight was Rowan fest - of course, after I had decided to make my dad the socks on the cover of the new Rowan Classic Winter, someone (you know who you are, and so do we!), dubbed the new Soft Tweed "Dryer Lint." Not very attractive. True, but unappealing.

Another true, but unappealing topic - clearly, a topic appropriate for knitting circle - male waxing. Having been with two men who wax their backs (yes, you too know who you are, and at least knitting circle knows that one of you is Dog Walker),I can tell you - well, let's put it this way - you know that beard burn that we delicate women tend to get from unshaven men -- imagine cuddling up to one big brillo pad. Uh huh - bad idea! Just say no to male back waxing!

But, apparently, everyone is saying yes yes yes to Rowan 38. I'm still not so sure. Interesting patterns, new designers, but . . . is it really all that wearable? We'll see. Duran Duran surprised us, and withstood the test of time, maybe Kid Acne will as well.

Pics. tomorrow!

Re Rowan 38; ANY magazine with a pattern called "Foggy Panda" deserves the ceremonial burning with the new knitters. Can you knit with me and R in the park Sunday afternoon and we can continue this convo? Also, love the Kevin Costner bits...
