Pal had to go for a recheck with Dr. Stone and while in the office we saw a cute black, bichon frise named CoCo..
pet from all the staff. Never had an animal that LIKED a visit to the office..
CoCo and his owner, who appeared to be about 80, sat in front of me. She was hunched over and every year of her age showed... It was her hat that got my attention..(well, everyone was looking and wondering about the hat..)
Lovely lady, filled with wisdom and funny stories, a retired sculptress. The hat was a Christmas gift.."A VERY BORING CHRISTMAS GIFT" she exclaimed.. so she turned it inside out and pulled at the joins...to make it a piece of "fiber sculpture."
"Virions enveloped; slightly pleomorphic; spherical; 80-100 nm in diameter. Surface projections of envelope small (surface appears rough), or distinct (8 nm long glycoprotein); spikes; dispersed evenly over all the surface. Capsids isometric (to spherical), or rod-shaped (or a truncated cone). Nucleoid of spherical nucleocapsid symmetric, or asymmetric." I can visualize all that gobbly gook as a wonderful picture... where as "fiber sculpture" has me stumped!
The 2 cowls are from The Grass is Greener. The sizes were based on what I had left for yarn...One I can pull over my head twice and the other just covers my neck! I enjoyed working the k1, sl1 pattern.
Finally, and nothing to do with yarn..the football season is coming to an end, the playoffs begin...
I'm a big Denver fan!
I hope everyone has a great week.. We are expecting a warm up...it will be nice to walk on firm ground instead of snow and ice!
