Ripped from News of the wierd headlines...
"The guy in the Ronald Reagan mask who robbed a Bank of America in San Diego in August got away, but all his money was dye-stained, in a caper that went wrong from the start. According to police, the mask covered his eyes; he wore a cape that tangled with his gun, causing him to drop it; his getaway car got blocked in by a delivery truck; he rammed the truck to get away, provoking an argument with the driver; the dye pack exploded; and the mask and gun got left behind. (2) Twice in a week in August, gangs (or maybe the same gang) of bank robbers in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, tried to haul away an ATM. In the first, they mistakenly yanked loose a check-depositing machine instead of the ATM, and in the second, their excavator's digging arm got stuck in the bank's ceiling. [San Diego Union-Tribune, 8- 29-06] [Reuters, 8-15-06]"

WANTED: quality knitting time
Oh well- at least the color patterning stayed bright and interesting. (I'll post a picture when my computer gets back from sickbay) It's mostly blues and purples, in a barberpole fashion- I basically split the roving in 2 and spun the color changes in order.

mmm- new knitting!
Notice the fact that it's lace. I am enamored.
Even though I am in row 110 of the Moon Dance stole (I was stalled because of work at school) I can see myself knitting Serrano, and wearing it all the time- isn't it funny how patterns make you imagine them? But I'd have to find a substitute yarn... mohair gives me the itchies. And the yarn called for- Schaefer Yarns Anne- is 25% mohair.
So basically I'm on the lookout for a superwash merino (blends are ok) with a gauge of 28 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, unblocked and
21 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, blocked.
