Wednesday Miscellany: The Daily Dish

1. I’ved been surfing the Barbara Walker second treasury for dish cloth inspiration and ran across a pattern, called “String of Pearls.” Walker assumes veteran knitters might understand that while a slick sport weight might yield “pearls,” worsted will create blobs. She would be wrong.

One could call it “the booger cloth” if one was feeling particularly censorious.

2. Fashion Denver’s winter market, with its punky, indie vibe, runs Saturday, noon-7 p.m. at The Hot House, 2936 Larimer. (Hip Slip bags will be there—locally designed, produced and vegan—I carry my messenger bag constantly.) $5 entrance fee benefits Dress for Success Denver.

3. Tiger befriends piglet. This from my friend Lisa. Is this cute or disturbing? Watch the video and let me know.

4. Mirriam-Webster's word of the year is w00t. IMHOthis is a zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Excellent use of censorious.  

Thanks for the heads-up re Fashion Denver.  And supporting Dress for Success is the whipped cream on top.

My vote for the tiger/pig is . . . confusion.  So the Thais just like to do a little species mixer?  They were sitting around and someone said, " Hey, I know what will get us on CNN!"
