Hurray for Ice Cream
I finally casted on for the Wobbly Circles Felted Tote. The KAL started on April 15th, but for various and sundry reasons, I didn’t get it started until Wednesday. And after I casted on, I had some serious color remorse. Have you ever had a great idea for a color combination, but when you actually knit it up, you were skeptical? That’s me and my wobbly. What’s the problem, you ask? It’s a bit BRIGHT! Yes, I am yelling for emphasis. Because it really is BRIGHT! The pink and orange remind me of going for Baskin Robbins ice cream when I was a kid. I went through a phase when I would order a scoop of strawberry ice cream and a scoop of orange sherbet every single time. After the ice cream got a bit melty, you could swirl it together and get this wonderful melange of pinky-orange or orangey-pink. Yummmm…
My wobbly also reminds me of different flavors of sherbet: raspberry, lime, orange and grape. Now I’m making myself hungry. From the Pasadena Daytimers, my wonderfully supportive SnB group, I’m getting encouragement and positive feedback that the colors look good, but I also know that people lie because they don’t want to hurt you feelings. We’ll see how my wobbly turns out.
Here’s a gratuitous picture of my sweetie girl. She turned 6 today and we had a blast celebrating… all. day. long. Here she is, party girl and then, exhausted and sleeping.
