Today, as I watched Stacy's son while she was getting a hair cut, I thought of a word that isn't used so often anymore. Whirligig. Now, why do you suppose we don't use that word anymore? I love the way it sounds. Maybe it is because things aren't made with gears and dials anymore. Steam isn't used to power things much either. Maybe too, this is why I am so fascinated with Steam Punk. Not to many people like Steam Punk around here though, so I don't get to see to much of it. Just online.
The new Interweave Press Knits magazine came in the mail today. There are a couple patterns that I'd like to try. We shall see.
I haven't gotten very far in my latest knitting projects. I worked on the socks at the knitting meeting yesterday, but I haven't been working on Versatility. I need to get it done before Stitches. I want to get buttons for it at Stitches. I know, that sounds crazy, but there is going to be a button dealer at Stitches and since I need 16 shank buttons for it, I want to be able to get them there. I am hoping to find something that looks steam punk, but not over the top. And.... there we are, back to whirligig.
