Fishy Circumstances

Toronto week

Today begins a weekful of Toronto in my life here in London. Tonight there's Wicked with andromakie et alia (including clothsprogs!). Tomorrow, theengineer becomes the houseguest-of-the-week. On Friday, I have tentative plans to meet up with A.O. from the department from which I just graduated. And lastly, on Tuesday, there's a reception at Canada House for Canadian graduates which I may attend.

Assorted other things

Felted metalwork

The other night, I dreamed that I met truepenny (whom I have never met, nor seen photos of). She had masses of curly grey-black hair, bound back in a bandana, and was wearing the coolest felted knitted torcs, two of them in pastels, around her neck. But really - how nifty would it be to have a golden felted torc to wear? Comfortable, lightweight. It might need internal reinforcement of course - wire, perhaps?

In fact, I can now picture an entire line of period jewelry recreated through knitting - snake arm bands, circlets, "gem-encrusted" bangles...

Surely someone else has already thought of this before.
