Miss Kalendar Does Easter Weekend.

Well, I just uploaded Episode 2 of Brass Needles, which you can find at or get from Itunes. I feel accomplished.

However, why not see what I was up to on Easter Weekend? As you can see from the pictures, Meri_Sefket and I were out at Lacis on Saturday. This would be the textile museum in Berkley/Oakland. it is fabulous. And beware, there are great things to buy, like busks for corset making or lace-making supplies, books (such as the one I was perusing), and bone knitting needles and crochet hooks, as well as thread, yarn, etc., for all of your dirty little hobbies. It was hard to walk out of there with just a set of bone needles and a copy of piecework about re-creating WW2 socks.

There are no pictures of my sassy 1950's cocktail dress on Easter morning, but there are pictures of drinking wine and watching Xena from Easter night. Now that's what I consider to be an excellent Easter Weekend. Nothing says good times like 90s television and good red wine. Of course, Miss K loves her red wine any day of the week, with any hobby.

Miss Kalendar's new 'do and friend.

Posted by request of C.L., the Metamor City mastermind.
So, I posted a picture of he and I hanging out to make it fair.

Shawl for grandma finished

Here are the pictures of the shawl I knitted for my grandmother. It's the swallowtail shawl from Interweave. I believe you can purchase the pattern through their website.

Miss Kalendar has been knitting a bit

There will be a longer post later, but I wanted to pop and say that I finished a shawl and a pair of knucks, both of which I am very happy with. I am in the middle of the frankensocks, and just a few pieces from being ready to sew the baby sweater together.

Never doubt the power of Star Trek movies to help the knitting mojo along!
