I've been having such a strange time with this really gorgeous "Sublime" soy and cotton blend yarn. Every pattern I picked seemed to somehow just plain not work. After frogging it so many times, it is amazing that the stuff still works without splintering into a gazillion fibers.

Anyway, last night I finally finished 1/2 of it, and while it's not perfect, I'm pleased. Now it's on to the second half. I've modified the pattern so that there's ribbing at the bottom before the pattern starts. It'll be fun to see how this one comes out :-).

[ profile] calvinthedeeple is not a happy boy with the weather change. He seems lethargic and in pain. *sigh* I'm still hoping we can avoid surgery, but it doesn't look so good now.

Garden Gnomes Pop Up In Front Of Frederick Businesses - News Story - WRC | Washington:

FREDERICK, Md. -- Those tacky gnome statues often seen in residential gardens have been showing up in front of businesses in downtown Frederick.
Eric Krasner, owner of CineGraphic Studios, said he found one in front of his business, moments after seeing two women posing for pictures with two gnomes on a bridge over Carroll Creek as he was driving to work. The women left the gnomes behind.
Police said they have not received any reports of stolen gnomes, and the Frederick Arts Council is unaware of any art projects involving gnomes.

The Frederick News-Post reports stealing gnomes from gardens and photographing them in other locations has been a popular prank for years.
