Teasing my old friend back

Nina, whose Ann Arbor shawl graces my book (OOP but cover-price copies available at Purlescence), called today; she needed to stop by after work a moment.

During our short conversation, she decided instead to go home, grab her knitting–yup, got her addicted too now–and so we sat and chatted for about an hour, wondering why we didn’t do this more often.

I showed her Lorraine’s qiviut scarf and the little lace scarf I’d made out of one skein of the Arctic Blend. Ten bucks for a qiviut blend. It is lovely stuff.

Nina had the same reaction to Lorraine’s handiwork that I did: she immediately put it on and declared that wow, she felt like a million bucks. It looked smashing on her, too, she was absolutely right. Just her colors. I so wish I’d thought to take her picture in it.

I showed her the matching big skein of yarn, not yet knit, as all the Warm Hats stuff and baby blanket got ahead of it in the lineup.

Well now.  I could totally knit that gorgeousness up for her, she thought out loud. (With a grin.)

I explained that, editors willing, it’s to go in the next book.

She laughed, “You can tell stories on me again. After all these years, you’ve got lots of stories to tell on me!”

Wait–was that a hint?

My hats delivered; and the office folks were excited about them. The reaction from the actual recipients may be different, now that wea re hoping for the end of this winter. LOL

Hint? Maybe more of a command.

I, too am eager for your next book :-}
Regarding the color, it perfectly matches the creamy-grey stripes in a black and grey ikat material dress I wear often to concerts and other important occasions. It also looked great yesterday with my plaid flannel house dress :-}
I will ask Oscar to take a photo of me wearing it soon.
Did you remember, you gifted my sis-in-love LynnH with a shawl of the same pattern? We have matching Alison shawls now!!
