This a the nest of the elusive spring migrating Meansilk. Although it looks as though it has been haphazardly thrown into an evergreen by a blister fingered wrist weary knitblogger, look closer. Clearly the blogger would have given up by now. Only the Meanbird could wrestle the unforgiving silks into this wonderful shape. Stay tuned for possible sightings. Now to answer a few post questions: Cece asks if she can participate in Worldwide KIP day contest altho not from Illinois. WHY of course Cece. I will be donating a dollar for every KIP photo sent to my email at Harpnut@gmail.com by 6/13. to this worthy cause. See May 24th post. Irisheyes Lynn, ahem, recent birthday girl, asks what pattern Al and I are using for our knitalong and our yarn choices: We are using Vogue Knitting's Seed Stitch Shell Pattern with Blue Sky cotton. Gauge is 13sts and 23 rows = 4" using size 101/2s.
June 11th is worldwide knit in public day! Contest info. posted 5/24
