A li'l a this, an' a li'l a that
I have no toque picture for you at this point, because it went straight onto Michael's head. I was pleased as it's the first toque I've ever liked the look of on him, so I wasn't about to take it home again to wash it in Eucalan and have it (the toque) pose for posterity.
All this meant that it was time to start the Ericat Hat - so here's the beginnings of that:
In other news, it turns out that Sufjan, who I wrote about yesterday, is a knitter. Aren't you more inspired to find out about him?! After reading this, I promptly wrote to him to ask if he'd consider writing for the next issue of the knit zine.
Also, you can rest assured that Take Back the Knit orders are being filled slowly but surely - a whole whack of 'em went in the post on Monday. Zine submissions for the Bookmobile project were supposed to be in the mail today, but hopefully I won't be ignored completely if it gets postdated tomorrow. Vegan Freegan and the first two issues of Beating Around the Bush toured with them a few years ago, so I'm hoping for similar acceptance luck in 2005.
Sophie's comment this morning, and my inability to reply to it considering her e-mail address wasn't in the body of the comment, was the kick in the ass I needed to switch up the way folks can comment around here (Sophie, write me again if you're reaing this!). I think it's better now, and I hope you all think so too. You know, when I was just a blog-reader and not a blog-writer I didn't really get commenting. Now that I have a blog to call my own I feel compelled to encourage you all to simply say hello even so I know I'm not just talking to myself. Please. And thank you.
