Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

progress and project planning

The SU&KI sweater got a couple hours of work last night while we watched "Scrubs" and "Survivor" And the night before, we watched a history channel special on the auction of Star Trek memorabilia in honor of the fourty year anniversary of the show. Quite impressive! It took months to unearth things from the warehouse where all the Star Trek, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise things are stored, along with costumes and props from all the movies. The auction house, (Christies) had to hire three Star Trek specialists full time for months and months to sort and identify things. What's this little flute thing? That's the flute that Picard acquired in the episode where he absorbed all the memories of the man who lived through the end of his world. It sold for something like $14,000. And it doesn't even play! The ten foot long scale model of the Enterprise went for something like $40 thousand. Yeah, it's way cool, but where will you put it? DH pointed out that if you will spend that kind of money for the model, then you will be happy to build a wing on your house to showcase it. So anyhow, I got lots of knitting done.

Here is the oddball and handspun stash that I will be drawing upon to knit the next three farceeing hats. I pulled it out of various baskets and boxes and piled it all in the one big cat bed (which none of them like because it is too big. Cats like cozy, not spacious.)

So I will be spending the next week or so contemplating the pile, stirring and sorting and re-sorting it, while I finish the SU&KI sweater. The pile will speak to me and hats will emerge. Which yarn and texture goes with the fish eyes? Which is better for the bobcat? A lot of the handspun may become more orphanage sweaters.

Today is Lucia's birthday (rhymeswithfuschia) Pisces are the nicest people!

    The Star Trek thing is totally cracking me up! I SAW that episode!!!! And the yarn basket is wonderful...that sounds like such a marvelous plan...just let the yarn talk and pull it out...honestly, if it weren't for pudgy little hands pulling my needles out of whatever I was working on (Arwyn--Kewyn respects the knitting, but Arwyn believes the world is her oyster...) I might try it myself...instead, I will simply park it in my brain for the days when I miss pudgy little fingers.
