    The spaced knots within the white pearls seem to work/look just fine, and add flexibility to the rope. What will be interesting to find out, is if the holes are a consistent size. It's possible the whites, being akoya, may have smaller holes than the goldens. It's one of the fun, interesting questions to be answered in the future!

    I know, cricketbug, I know. Plus I torture myself with the PP (cover your eyes, Jeremy) refresh button.

    Then, as if that isn't enough pain, PoJ, Kamoka, Bweaves and her Kojima refresh button...

    ..But listen cricket, spring and summer are coming, so take heart; babynurse will put away the cashmere sweaters and then the only torment will be her pearls.? Oh, no what was I thinking??? I love looking at her sweaters and pearls! Waaaaaaah, oh, the conflicted soul.

    Ah, who am I kidding? We just need to toughen up, and get very Zen. Because I'm grateful, lucky BN puts up these posts and pictures.

    It was in the Japanese section at Pearl House. I came across it 10 minutes before Jeg and I left for the airport (3 days early because of the typhoon. )

    Lisa you have such a way with words! I always laugh when I read your posts! The cashmere goes well with the pearls but I wear it to survive winter here. It’s. So. Cold.

    A few days ago when I posted this, you said the look reminded you of a snowy bunny. These are our pet bunnies and they match the color scheme!

    Couscous is the fluffy white male on top. Maple is the short-haired white and brown female on the bottom. They adore each other. Despite how it looks, Maple’s the one who wears the pants in this relationship.

    Couscous left (male), Maple right (female). Couscous is a mini lop and Maple is a mini Rex. As I mentioned they adore each other, which works out ok because they’ve been neutered/spayed.
