beeze, ma in law, and deer-caught-in-headlights amanda
(note the finely crocheted cream+brown afghan)
i was weeding out my music cds last night when i found a load of picture cds, the sort that came with pictures that were developed from film. film, sigh. this picture was taken in 2003, well before i owned a digital camera. jg must have been responsible for this shot. because i would not have rudely cut off the lovely hand knit hat at the bottom of the picture.
anyway, it's funny to see how my ma in law was reading the vogue knitting book while amanda (now beeze's wife) was trying to crochet. i had just taught her how the day before, the day we first met. she was visiting from florence. she knocked on the door and asked me to show her how to crochet. no joke.

an official schmeebot endorsement: fabulous yarn, where i ordered two bamboo interchangeable needle sets recently. one for my sister, one for me. i couldn't be happier with the service: live chat q+a, flat rate shipping, prompt order status updates, careful packing/packaging. i found this website to have the best price on these needles. and the discounts made it irresistible. fabulous, indeed.
