Taming Tesla

First off, I believe the hosting transfer went off, mostly, without a hitch. There have been some technical issues on my end (i.e., I did something flakey or tried to experiment with a new feature) but otherwise, the site is operational. On the negative side, one of the things I flubbed has made it so only works right now, and not Most of you have probably never noticed that I work under two domains, but I originally picked mlminspirations, when I had no idea that my initials were also used for "Multi-Level Marketing" something I do not wish to be associated with. So, once I figured that out, I decided to choose a different domain. Anyway, all those people who use my old domain will be able to get back in, in the next couple of days, but for now, will have to hang tight or magically find my new domain. Hope I don't lose too many readers in the mean time.

So in knitting news, I have finally gotten to a point where I think I like what I'm doing with Tesla. There isn't much to show but here you go.

First, I think you should take a look at the texture of this yarn knit up:

The other pictures show the piece laying flat and you can't really appreciate how interesting the final fabric is. I don't know how to describe it, almost like some type of biology book drawing, but in a beautiful sense. I'm really captivated by the way it looks.

As you may be able to guess from this picture, it's going to be a funky little purse when I'm done. I'm still batting around ideas for how I'll finish it. I have some white Tesla too that I plan to use as accents on the bag. Nothing is finalized, yet, though.

Finally, here's a close up of the double decreases running through the center of the piece. I love this decrease, inasmuch as anyone can love a decrease.

Oh, and I got the great news that my little brother (can I call a 25 year old, "little"?) is coming out to see me next weekend. Well, let's be honest, he's not coming out to see me, he's coming out for other reasons and will bless me with the pleasure of being allowed to pick him up from LAX and house him for his visit, but you know, the truth is, I'm totally happy to do so.
