Sunday, December 4, 2005


Oh, blessed light of December – ye are only on the map between 6:30a to 4p these days, but I love you all the same…

The wonders of the Digital Color Space Spectrum never cease to amaze me! The gamut is so much more clipped in the blues than film – but today I think the actual color of the wintry skies worked a little magic.

I *think* this looks like the real color it is!

But on your monitor, who knows? :)

You always read this disclaimer (yep, I’m slacking again in those online catalogs…) and I really know, from the school of hard knocks, that it’s true. I saw the light today and just decided to go for it – I thought I might have a match! Now my journal is complete with the finished object – and I still love those little pockets!

    What a gorgeous color. Yep, I think you caught it this time. While before I admired the pattern, the color didn’t do much for me. Seeing this makes me want to cast on post-haste.

    C’est magnifique et tres belle!

    Dear Watson is lovely. I am patiently waiting for Elemental, mainly because you are using one of my all time favorite yarns. I was a math major in college and I had a prof who would accept EMDW at the end of a proof!

    A while back I wrote to you about sewing in the sleeves of my LoTech Hoodie and I just wanted to say thanks for the Tech Talk and it turned out great. It hit the runway today and was received with many complements.

    BRAVA LYNDA!!! I took a lot of math in college too (I have a degree in Electrical Engineering yikes…) I love the math in knitting, the science in the math, the knitting in the geek (mwah!). I notice your email is wtothethirdpower – WOOT!

    The sweater’s really a knockout. And the color, on my monitor it’s sort of purply blue, is smashing.

  7. Bonne Marie says:

    Hi Larry!!! YES! It is a purpley blue – I’m so glad it looks correct on your monitor! :)

    OMG, you’ve linked me – hey Everybodeeee, Bonne Marie linked me! I am so unworthy…

    Seriously, I’ve been a big fan of yours for years and am in awe of your designs and incredible talent. Thanks for pointing people in my direction and for your kind comments regarding the Party Bracelet.
