Rockefeller, Clue #3 SPOILER

Today's clue for the Rockefeller Mystery KAL from Westknits was just over 4 hours of knitting ... I'm not generally much of a fan of the look of a corrugated-type ribbing but this suits the design.

A few people have posted pictures of Radio City Music Hall in the Rockefeller Centre and a few of the symbols outside of it that appear to be the inspiration for this design. Without knowing it I chose (and you solidified that selection) colours that echoed one of the online pictures. I know ... creepy!!! ;)

I have also made excellent progress on Beth's Drops 85-11 sweater. What a difference a proper blocking can make!!

The Olympics have begun. I was seriously bewildered by the opening ceremony. Aside from Rowan Atkinson who can't help but steal the show, I was totally uninterested and glad of the distraction of sorting myself to go out. Yes - I went out!!! I put on my face and something not a t-shirt. One our very best cashiers is moving on from Alliston and we were celebrating her presence in our lives and her future. Best wishes Blanche!!!

I know - can you even believe how much my hair has grown in a year?!? I hardly had enough to run my fingers through last year and now it blows around in the wind, drives me crazy in the morning and is enough to grab a fistful. Sometimes I just love going outside and just standing in the wind and reveling in mess that the breeze makes of it, enjoying the crazy tickling of it teasing my face. Amazing.

  1. i think of all the teens wailing,"I hate my hair!" and wonder how they would feel if it was gone. You are a joy and a walking victory! Hooray and YEEHA for you!

    You are also one foxy babe.

    The shawl is delightfully Art Deco! And you make it look like such a fun knit.
