Miraculously, we both finished our Pueblo Stoles within minutes of each other!! Here they are side by side on Lettie:
Nothing left to do but weave in the ends – NOT! But we do need to finish up the fringe and lightly block them. Toward the end we were desperate to finish. Why? New cow. We had tired of the “old cow” and wanted new cow.
Have you seen the Ashley Judd/Hugh Jackman movie Someone Like You? It is a pretty cute romantic comedy with so many similarities to Bridget Jones’s Diary as to be uncanny (and was overshadowed by same when they both came out in 2001). It talks about the tendency of a bull to tire of the “old cow” and want to move on to the “new cow,” and how this applies to men in relationships. We think it applies to knitters and their projects!
So, our new code phrase is new cow. The next new cow is always more appealing than the old cow you are working on!! We acquired many new cows at Yarnover!! These shall be unveiled along the way, but let us just say that we jump-started the economy big time. BIG time. Sally had to buy an extra suitcase to get it all home.
And today we head to Washington DC and to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, where Yarnover yarns/projects will become old cow…it is a vicious cycle!!!
