Before and After

Before:
Two delicious skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Grey's Something or Other. Needless to say that I LOVE THIS YARN. Look closely for a hint at its destiny....



Destiny fulfilled. Well, almost. Mac wasn't sure why his ladies are tormenting him with fluffy leg covers when his legs are quite fluffy enough, thank you very much. And when he says fluffy, he means in the most manly and intimidating way possible.

That's better! These legwarmers are a birthday gift for my dear dear dear friend Rhonda. Mlle Rhonda spends a good portion of time waiting for the train to take her to work, and then walking from the train station to work, and back again; not to mention all the time spent at the park with Mac, who enjoys the park most at sunrise. These will keep her delicate ankles most fabulously toasty, and their cheery pinkness also reminds her that spring is coming...someday.

Also on the needle art front, your attention is invited to Rhonda's Grandmother's crotchet slippers. Rhonda was an avid "hooker" before she her time was sucked away by the evil economic necessity of work, and we should all pray she starts hooking again soon. Someday, I'll post a picture of the awesome blanket she crocheted me (refered to at the Lt's household as "Rhonda's blanket") that is so warm and toasty that the Lt will not even sit next to it on the couch.

    Fighting for custody of the Net
    Custody battles are always nasty. And from the looks of things, a recent proposal to shift control of the Internet to the U.N. will be no better.
