Frills and Bows and Furbelows*

An informative post, with some fun stuff:

First, we have a new e-mail address. I've updated it on my website, and everyone who was in our address book will be getting an update notice (I think there were some people in my address book who no longer talk to me or want to, so that should be amusing), but I'll also give it to you here: elsworthy AT comcast DOT net.

Easy peasy, right? Same name, different provider.

Second, I got my copy of PoF4, and guess what? It has confirmation from an independent line of research that  my coif-tying theory holds water. Janet Arnold, you rock.

Third, PBS is showing a series called Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work, and last night on Episode 1, they showed the Queen's visit to the US. The footage of her at Jamestown shows some of our guys behind her, and - Carla and me in the Four-Bay window. I am resting my head on my arms, listening to the Queen speak.
This window:

(I'm not in this picture - I had the camera.)

I love being on TV, even though my fifteen minutes of fame is more like 15 nanoseconds - I'm always in a cut shot that lasts less than two seconds, no matter what (I have a similar length cameo in the Jamestown introductory film). I was a bit sad that Bob wasn't shown, because he looked super cool, as can be confirmed here:


...and the Queen passed within four feet of him on her way out of the fort. He said to me later "I saw her, and thought 'she looks just like Laura's mother. But Laura's Mom is better looking'". Hee.

...I have a spider in my printer. It just crawled out a second ago, and ran back in when I tried to squash it. That should make my print jobs today look interesting. sigh.

I will be at Holiday Faire on the 22nd, and I will be selling jewelry and little bunches of flowers (yes, I've documented them - I have pictures) intended to be worn at the bosom. I've got some pretty ones, and they're cheap, so have a look. Eadric will be selling my patterns and other stuff of mine, like knitted purses and lacing cords:

(I've discovered the lacing cords work very well with the chapes/aglets you can get from Historic Enterprises - I can get 3-5 out of one length, depending on how long I make them.)

And... that's about it for today. I've updated my website's accessories page with a couple of my knitted things, but I'm going to wait until I have the second pink sock done before I put them up.
 
*(...if you don't know what a furbelow is, look it up.  Research is good for you.)

I love the knitted pouches. You should sell those online. :) Individually listed of course to avoid hassles where people don't like colors or overselling. I'd buy one.

And this further reinforces the fact that I think I am the only non-knitter of my acquaintance. Strange.

Isn't it weird? My entire friends list is knitters, and there are some that don't even come from the same planet. Every time a new one of them talks about yarn, I think, "But you're not the knitter that's whatshername..."

They're super simple: Cast on 16 stitches each on four size 3 needles. Knit for however long you like, adding stripes of different colours as you feel like it. Finish off, add wrapped bobbles (three looks nice). :)

I tend not to sell things like this on-line, because keeping up with sales is an extra worry in an already overflowing life, and I can't handle that as well as everything else. It's silly, but I can't.

Dare I ask what method you are using for your lacing cords? I have worked them up in am number of styles but I am always curious what works for other folks.

I'm skeered to look up furbelow at work.... Maybe when I get home.

Okay, just for you, I will define it. It's a deep ruffle, either on a skirt or a curtain. The kind that Scarlett O'Hara liked on her dresses. :)

I'd totally jump on the knitted purse bandwagon bec. omg they're so cute! And I don't/won't/refuse to knit, so of course, I want to buy one from you :-D But pretty soon you'll be running an Etsy store out of this post, & I don't want to be annoying like that. Let me just say that if I ran across those in person, I'd TOTALLY buy 3 -- one for me & 2 as gifts for pals. No questions asked. A-freakin-dorable!

Psst - the Gunnister Man link is not working on the accessories page. You might want to link to http://nms.scran.ac.uk/database/record.php?usi=000-100-001-401-C (NMS also has pages on the other Gunnister bits too) and/or http://www.scran.ac.uk/database/results.php?field=where&searchterm=%22Gunnister%22&searchdb=scran (which is probably from the same series of pictures anyway).

Thanks. I find that the sites go out of date frighteningly fast. :)
