I planted a handful of Anya apricot seeds after we got back from Seattle a month ago and today the first one finally sprouted. Those baby leaves just delight me to no end.

The sideways-design idea? Yeah, lace stretches every which way and all that, but laid flat like that it’s 72″ wide and 27″ long. Or 33″. Or more if you hold it up and its weight pulls it down, but either way, I’m thinking I’m doing this much again and calling it done.

Or (looking the dimensions up) I could do a bit past that and call it a twin size. Should I really want to?

I just finished reading a book on the effect of textiles in human technological development. A desire for dyes led to great strides in chemistry. The drop spindle whorl was the first wheel. And the first evidence of the development of arithmetic seems to come from a weavers need to figure out how many warp threads were needed to make the pattern come out right. The same applies to knitting.
