Arcadia And Angora

Karin:

Not feeling poetic and the blog shows it. The hands though, they are never still and tech editing my patterns IS writing… even if it’s a pill! :)
Come visit my Valium place, the world of WIP’s and Chains.

Damn… I love alliteration! :) It comes naturally, a function of the ADD brain I’ve thought, as I often think in rhyme too… Anyways…

Making her debut is The Arcadian Cowl (single loop version):

I’ve a busy day today that will preclude knitting – I wish Atavan was available OTC! – but the test knit for Arcadian’s double loop sister should be underway by this evening. I really like this blocked and finished and might just keep it!

And as knitting is my Valium, I jumped into yet another project. This is another buster of most ancient stash and easy on the hands so far. KFI’s Angora Extra, has been languishing in my stash for at least 5 years and when I found it a few days ago, I wanted to knit it but was out of love with the original pattern…

Vernal Equinox

Oh beautiful man!
My most precious Love
You are here at last
Sent with warmth from above

I’ve tarried to long in this frozen hell
I have ached for your touch
Flayed with torturous constraint
Endured so much

Lovers perfidious, foolish or young
Left my true self in chains
The sight of you, my Green Man
Fire streaks through my veins

One kiss my darling
With your lips like wine
Bring me into your sunlight
I shall make you mine

What’s Important…

My humble opinion? Let it never be said that I squandered my Present by worrying about my outward appearance in the Future.
(and I hope I look as effing fabulous as this model some day)

I gotta say: it’s a sad commentary on humanity when tattoos, an “older” woman with hair longer than her ears, or dressing unconventionally; generates more discussion, outrage, or unsolicited opinion than say, unsafe drinking water, the corruption of religious and political leaders or child abuse…

Just a quick note: I’ve been finding it hard to catch up on my reading and responding on WordPress. Some of you know that I have a two other active blogs, a full and a part time job and a family. The volume of wonderful posts is sometimes overwhelming, especially when my M.E. kicks up and I hope you’ll forgive me if I miss something. Always know that your visits are what keeps me going  and are very much appreciated. ~ kei
