A Pack of Filthy Lies

I had the best of intentions.  I have about two thirds of a hat…two thirds of what I am increasingly sure will be a cute hat.  I have the firm desire to show you this partial hat.  But you see, I also have three nefarious kitten overlords, a tendency to fill the bathroom sink to block swatches, and poor judgement as to how well the kittens will behave in the presence of a sink full of water.  Hi-jinx ensued.  The short version is that I now have a very damp partial hat that is in no way photo ready.  I also have a very soggy ball of yarn that needs to be skeined and dried before I can knit with it any more. (Do not knit with wet yarn, it will mess up your gauge.  Do not leave yarn to dry in the ball, it will take an age.)

So.  Yeah.  Nifty.  We’ll have to take a little pause on that one.

In the meantime, the Chez Violence Home for Wayward Knitting Props has a new resident.  It turns out glove forms are actually astonishingly nifty knitting props (and charming objects in their own right).  I made the executive decision that I did not have enough of them, so Rosamund is now joining Percival and Millicent.  She’s shown here modeling the Narcissus pseudo-narcissus Cuff from Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet.  She seems to be fitting in well with her new roommates, and I have high hopes for her future.

And just as soon as the hat is dry, her buddy Esmeralda will step up and do some modeling for us.
