Waffling

We all have to be good at something. I happen to be the clumsiest person I know or know of, including the gawky 14-year-old making my latte and the neighbor-guy who set his house on fire two weekends ago. Most people have a basic command over their limbs by their twenties, wouldn't you say? Not so your friend Eunny - yesterday, I was walking, minding my own business, when my legs just decided to suddenly buckle and I hit the ground like a Hefty bag full of vegetable soup. Not tripped by anything - not a misstep into a crack - just not having a handle on that whole locomotion thing. Anyway, my chin and cheekbone are a lovely shade of ground beef, and my hand is raw enough to be terribly stiff all the time.

The point is, not much knitting going on, what with The Claw, and all. But I've been busy! Remember the too-small felted vest? I blocked it with some gentle stretching, and got another couple inches out of it:

Now that it's completely square and even, I'll get around to making the cut one of these days.

And here's a design I like for the lace scarf, represented very poorly with my truly lame lace-drawing skills:

I was thinking three "strips" of print o' the wave, surrounded by a narrow edging of bead stitch and finished with a plain garter stitch border. It would be very simple, but all the more modern for that, and I do so dearly love the idea of taking a very old pattern and making it look new. I'm looking into doing River, too (thanks, Annie and Angela), but everyone who's made it says it can be monstrous boring. So...if you can visualize the print o' the wave scarf beyond the heinous drawing, or if you've made River, what do you think?

Postscript - I was freaked right the hell out yesterday when a woman stopped me in the grocery store to ask if I had a knitting blog and if my name was Eunny. Hi, Rachel!

I was recognized yesterday in my LYS as the Queen of Fug! (In case you didn't know, I won You Knit What's Halloween contest.) It was pretty funny. We're celebrities! We should carry Sharpies to give autographs!

Sorry about your fall. I'm clumsy too - just the other day I dropped our salt shaker (unbreakable, thank God) and sent the contents flying all over the kitchen floor. Good thing my son didn't see it - he's addicted to eating salt, so he probably would've been licking the floor.

Hee! I had something similar happen to me last year at the March for Women's Lives in DC. Someone who'd been reading my blog for years happened to be in the same delegation and recognized me.

congratulations on being celebrity spotted! I agree, it probably would be pretty freaky though. I sometimes feel like that even when I comment on a celebrity blog...

Anyway, I sympathize with you on the random knee buckling thing. I think I have a milder case than yours since I've never resulted as ground beef from it. I hope you heal up soon.

Ah! The hazards of fame. Keep knitting and bloggin gabout it like you have and you'll be mobbed!

I like the sketch! And yes, although River is pretty, it was horribly boring to knit. LOL on being 'recognized'! And hope you recover from your bumps and scrapes soon : )!

And here I thought I was the only twenty-something that still randomly falls. We must compare bruises sometime. Hope you feel better soon!

You know my vote on River, so go with your sketch!

I think your peacock shawl is looking beautiful. I can't get over what a fast knitter you are!

And, how cool that you were recognized by a reader!

You should have heard the thud when my daughter fell over in the shower last night, for no apparent reason! She also trips down the stairs regularly. Of course, she gets it from me, I splatted all over the floor last week - again no apparent reason. It's good to know I'm not the only klutz, but sorry 'bout your chin!

LOVE that vest!!!
