Yarnplay, by Lisa Shobhana MasonThe Noro scarf is coming along nicely. I did some good work on it over the past couple nights while watching DVDs -- a couple episodes from Season 3 of Buffy as well as the movie Shopgirl. Claire Danes played a poignant Mirabelle, and the movie was surprisingly good and very thoughtful. I was prepared to be turned off by the Steve Martin/Claire Danes relationship (remember that awful Winona Ryder/Richard Gere pairing a few years ago?), but it was touching and well done. I loved the scene where Ray sits on the futon in Mirabelle's apartment. Also, the cat interfering in the action during a love scene was awfully humorous.
- The Lorelei Tank Top is absolutely gorgeous, and I think I could wear it over a tailored white shirt this winter. Plus the pattern calls for Noro!
- Another highlight is the k.i.s.s. (keep-it-simple-so-your-man-will-wear-it sweater) -- very classy, and I think my husband actually would wear it. It's a little bit J. Crew and a little bit funky.
- The Manta Ray shawl is lovely, and it would be a great beginning lace project for me.
Here are the beginnings of a Mason-Dixon baby kimono, balanced on the arm of my couch. I may frog this and go with garter stitch instead since this curls up so much. I'll have to look at some finished versions to see how it turns out in stockinette.
