crochet world

i did crochet another swirly gizmo for the carnival shawl, but this time with a silk yarn, vittadini's 'celia'. it was wonderfully scrunchy (i like the way silk sounds/feels when squeezed), but, it did not puff out and "relax" as the cotton yarn did. the silk remained flat and submissive. though, it would drape nicely, and be 1/2 the wt. of a wool or cotton blend, and has wonderful luster, i just did not like how flat the motif was.
so, i still needed to crochet. and in the midst of helping mr. crumbles with photo stuff, i managed to crochet another dishcloth (since, we only have 2). i think the yarn is 'sugar and cream' ....

and, i did NOT make it to knitting last night! (BIG booooo hoooo !) i was going to wear my smoking jacket in honor of it being 'martini' night. i'll have to find/create another occasion to wear it soon though. it's swanky!

Nice jacket! U are so swanky! I couldn't make it to martini night either because I have been out sick for DAYS! Guess how much that totally sucks. So sick I can barely knit... yes, that sick.
