All rightie, then; nothing much going on Chez Weasel, but there's a rather spectacular something to show you:

My SP9 pal made and sent me this gorgeousness. It arrived in yesterday's mail. I am stunned. It is lovely. I've managed to get a not-too-blurry shot of it, which unfortunately skewed the color pretty completely. The actual color is more like orange marmalade, or an orange marmalade cat. Thank you so much, Lorena.
I went to a kick-off event for a candidate for selectman Friday night. The candidate is a person I've known for a long time. She's a serious, sensible woman and a hard worker who's done one too many huge advisory committee reports, so the current plan is, I gather, to compel implementation of some of the laudable things she's worked on for the last several years. A nice evening, though I seem to be getting mistaken for a Republican lately--my Republican friends think, oh, she's rational, interested in sustainable policy choices, ergo Republican! Wrong, guys. Sorry and all. Anyhow, a lot of folks seem to think I should be in office again in some capacity or other. The trouble with that, of course--which I told folks--is that I have these huge gaping holes in my brain, still. Something to mull for later, perhaps. The public policy geekiness could get pretty bad.

What a fab shawl, that's one dedicated SP!

Oh, GULP!!! What an amazing shawl. Lorena is the secret pal to end all secret pals.

p.s. My mom was once called by a reporter looking for a quote from a "moderate Republican woman". She (the reporter) had assumed that because Mom was appointed by a Republican governor, she was, herself a Republican. Mom corrected her gently (as is her wont), and (I suspect) used the opportunity to wax on about bipartisanship.

So relieved and glad you like it! (Hi, first time lace knitter, here...)

(gobsmack) (thud) (sits up groggily) Excuse me, did she say first time? Well, it is the Lenten season, after all. I guess a little humility never hurt anyone. (sighs, picks up pathetic little swatch for lace scarf)

As for being a rational Republican... I decline comment.

What an amazing shawl! Go, Lorena, go! I hope many more lace projects are in your future!

And as for you as a candidate for some sort of office (we do not have selectmen here), I say, let the geekiness begin!

Thanks, Erica! And Lucia? I think the trick to success was not really being aware of the magnitude of lace. ;-) That, and being highly motivated to spoil someone as fantastic as Liz!
