The coasters are cotton burgundy and pink. Not just for Valentine's Day. They're nice if you like a little dark red/burgundy with a touch of pink. But they would make a nice gift with a mug and some hot chocolate and decadent candies.
Small Heart is my first try with bamboo. It's a heavier gauge (5 stitches/inch) bamboo yarn, good for knitting, too. But I had it laying around and thought it might make a pretty scarf. It was nice to work with. The sett I used was 12 but it could go lower. By the way, it's Farmhouse Yarns, Bonnie's Bamboo, a local (Connecticut) spinner.
My birthday was January 20. I did some more glass work and got a guitar! I will have pictures tomorrow, as this is taking forever with the images. Anyway, for my birthday, I wanted to try doing an open mic. Didn't quite work out, as the place was closed, despite having listings in the Hartford Advocate every week. Silly me. I tried to call and only got the answering machine, which didn't surprise me. But I was really, happily surprised that all my friends came out to hear me! So, we went to Eli Cannon's, which was such a great a great hangout back in the day, and still is. I had a great time with my friends.
So, I will be trying it again this Friday. I sold a scarf there in December. It really exists. I've been there. People answer the phones. I just need to get there early to sign up. I'm not even as nervous as I was last time I ALMOST went. I just need to do this already. So, depending on how many songs I can sing, I'll do one cover and one or two originals. I'm writing another song but it won't be ready by then.
