And more silk

A few more Parker pictures…

I finished the first cone of the dk Colourmart silk and got two stitches into the next row with the next and stopped. Tinked that little bit back and walked over to the kitchen scale, curious.

I had bought two 150 g cones. Now that I could measure one empty piece of cardboard, I could subtract that from the other to see how much yarn was actually on the second cone.

One hundred seventy grams. Thirty-six for the cone, 206g altogether. And I remember the other as having been 206 too before I started. That means I got 40g more than they charged me for. Someone else mentioned something about that on Ravelry, and the owner just smiled and said she liked happy customers.

They posted a lot of new colors today. Said the happy customer.

News flash: three peregrine falcon eyases hatched at San Jose City Hall’s 18th floor on Easter Sunday with the fourth trying as hard as it could to join them, a big hole visible at the top of its egg. By morning today it was being fed with its new siblings by mama Clara.

And a new season begins.

I love that last photo with the hands in the air. (Trying to ignore that link today…)

That kid is sure photogenic.

I could have told you that would happen, but better to let you find out for yourself. LOL.

In that ‘hands up’ pic, I thought someone said ‘stick ’em up!

Today’s paper says that Clara is world famous!

A new season and a new shawl!

From everything I can perceive about colourmart, they do indeed like a happy customer. It is so nice to do business with folks like that.
