In case you missed this ongoing sibling knits drama, all summer my sister and I knit up mitered squares to make a surprise blanket for our parents. By mid August we were plenty psyched that a) we stopped short of hand-to-hand combat over artistic decisions and b) the trial layout looked awesome, in our-ahem- modest estimation. September passed and with it our not-really-but-we'd-like-to deadline .
We chose all those beachy bright colors because, in summer, the parents mostly live in beachy bright seaside Delaware. By October the place was boarded up for winter, so Lulu and I kinda lost our zip. We have the afghan-less sofa that faces the waves in mind as its final resting place. We're both immediate gratification gals , we want the reward of seeing the piece esconced and appreciated right way , none of that store it in a closet till spring stuff for us. (yeah we are old enough to be more mature than that. what about it?) We're thinking end of March when the place gets re-opened as the new goal.
The store is full of fun things to browse, Lulu is an excellent buyer and a gifted gifter.

Have I not been a good influence on her? See that issue of Piecework? Its all about knitting and has some very cool mittens in it. Wish I'd bought it.
