While I watched the real Olympics last night with its amazing presentations, I was working not on the Bohus Dean Cap started yesterday morning
but on the Elizabeth Zimmermann-reminiscent Moebius 'Cowl' by Cat Bordhi.
The Moebius (that conical copper blob) is much easier to see at night. The Dean has a main and background color of black, as can be seen in the above picture. That black is not easy to follow in dim or electric lighting. I love how the Dean Cap is attractive in the first color rows, but changing two colors 'sparks' it! (Click on any photo to see details!)
With a ground-level 50 degrees and clear sky, the tomatoes waited impatiently for the sun's warmth , but it had been an evening of just excellent sleeping weather! This sky and sun should have brought out the Dean this morning, but I continued on the Moebius until the first skein of Lion Suede ran out. And now, I must run into the stash for the second skein!
This weekend brings us a celebration of EZ, as it would have been her 98th birthday.
Without her and the essence that has been and is Schoolhouse Press, knitting would have taken a back seat to ________ (fill in the blank).
