Rhiannon made a Knit Owl!
She did a wonderful job! I'm so impressed!
Thank you Rhiannon!
A sad attempt at a mitten I made back when I first started knitting.
Those kittens from July have grown up and are still hanging around - we call these two 'the twins' because they are always together. They even sleep curled up together.
I know I shouldn't - but I do feed them once in a while.
Mr.J and I walked around a landscaping store and took a drive out around the countryside today. We found one beautiful dirt road that reminded us a lot of Minnesota. Mr.J even said he was a little homesick. We're planning on going bowling, if the lanes are open. Mr.J really likes the nostalgia of bowling lately.
I did make myself sew up the pillow cover, so now we have two 'zabuton'
floor pillows again!
Sally scared me badly by diving at my open scissors as I cut the fabric on the front room floor. Note to self: Do not cut large pieces of fabric while cats with monkey paws are around. She sat there staring at the process until almost the end - then dove so quickly I could barely pull the scissors away in time! SCARED!
I've knitted up another dishcloth and a half - and am working a few rows on other projects on my needles, such as the Vacation socks
, knitted owl and Theatre Shawl.
The Theatre Shawl is getting close to the right length now! A couple of more inches and it will be there. The circular needle it is on really hurts my wrists though - especially with all the typing I've been doing at work lately :o(MagKnits
has some exquisite sock and glove patterns right now! I really want to knit that pair of Seaside gloves on the 'cover' page - but the Alchemy Synchronicity yarn is 20.00 a skein online. Anybody have ideas for substitutions? It is 5 stitches to the inch and takes 230 yards. The Palette yarn from Knitpicks is 7.5 stitches to the inch.
