Another F'ed UFO

Another finished unfinished object!

Why, what did you think I meant?

Beaded Linen Shawl

2009 was the year I was going to finish all my UFOs. And I made an honest effort. But here it is 2010 and I still have several that I am plugging away on. The beaded shawl, my only remaining knitting UFO, was perhaps my worst--languishing on the needles since 2002. But if you had to push a gazillion beads down the yarn every fourth row or so, you'd understand. SNORE. And then at the very very end, I cast off and looked at it and said, that's not right, I should have done it on the wrong side, and ripped out my cast off and redid it. Except--you guessed it--it was right the first time. GRRRSNORE! So don't get any pink ribbon winning ideas about this one.

But still, cute, no?

Speaking of cute... as most of you know, I like to invent things, then do nothing, then complain vehemently when someone else invents it. So I would like to post this video of Bella after she invented Neapolitan Milk (three kinds of milk in one, compartmentalized carton) to record in history her idea. I started recording her because she was so funny talking about all the details--the caps would screw on like on the OJ container! you can pour whichever one you want! But when I started recording, she is so well trained to perform that she sang an impromptu song instead.

It's very catchy. You can often hear someone humming it around the Baker house.
