Mardi Gras

It seems really far off, but just today I had to check and make sure that a CW gig I was booking did not conflict with Mardi Gras 2009. I've made that mistake in the past and never want to again.

Save the dates leading up to February 24, 2009 (Fat Tuesday).

I should be taking pictures, but I have 3 Mardi Gras projects in relatively active process on the needles. There are also 2 in deep hibernation sitting right next to my chair in a vain attempt to encourage me to take them up again. In the first group is the alpaca scarf (in purple and green), the MG stole (in 7 different yarns--mostly Prisms), and MG socks (Sokotta). The hibernating ones are another stole and a set of gator mittens. I also have 4 skeins of PGG yarn waiting for me at my LYS.

I've also managed to bully my LYS into having another MG kickoff on January 9. Just thinking about Mardi Gras and a whole Carnival season's worth of knitwear makes me happy.

  • CW: Civil War
  • LYS: Local Yarn Store
  • MG: Mardi Gras
  • PGG: purple, green, and gold
