I am joining along with Ginny from Small Things today for the Yarn Along. Please follow the link to join along.
I went a little crazy last week with cabin fever and decided I had to knit my cat Milo a "Raspberry Beret". He was less than impressed...
His sister Lola was a much calmer model.
Click this and then go back up and look at the photos again, it's even better with a soundtrack ;)
I also knit Nalah a pair of legwarmers during our drive down to the Kite Festival.
I opened my mail to a fun surprise last week, Storey Pulishing sent me a copy of Knit Christmas Stockings, edited by Gwen W.Steege. I have always wanted to learn to knit designs in multiple colors and a Christmas stocking would be a perfect first project for that. There are some wonderful patterns an whimsical charts. I wish I had more time to knit these days, if I did I would freak out and try to knit stockings for all of my kids this year in a design with their names and dancing animals in a rainbow of colors. Yeah, I will save that for another year.
Right now I am still knitting toddler fingerless gloves to sell over the holidays, everything else is on hold for a bit. I am dreaming of knitting a red sweater for myself...
