I knit and finished a project. It’s a small project, but was enjoyable. Gives me a little niggle to knit more. I don’t want to speak too soon, but perhaps it’s the end of my slump. Maybe… This was knit for my sister, as per her request. The wee beggar better like it.
A new tyrannical kitty to help keep my yarn tangled and my needles chewed.
My daughter named her Miku. My dog on the other hand has a few inventive nicknames for her, I’m sure.
In knitting news…I pulled a Yarn Harlot. Who’d a thunk that measuring to 16-1/2″ would be so difficult? Obviously, my tape measure is broken, because my notes were correct. Doesn’t change the fact that I had to rip out half of the back to my textured cardigan, knit the extra two inches. Too bad I didn’t make the same measuring error on the left front…no one would have be any the wiser and I’d be knitting the right front as I type. I’m sure with the new kitten, I won’t have anymore such distractions.
My camera is pooh. Pooched. Bit the dust. Has gone to the great lens in the sky. So, until I get a new one…one with a flash, macro and zoom and all those other nifty things a camera does that we take for granted, you will all be subjected to crappy pic’s taken by the camera on my iPod Touch. I’d apologize, but shit happens.
As per my daughter, whom is turning nine today! Happy Birthday, toots!
I even managed to squeeze in and knit part two of eight between all the baking and the dipping.
I know, still doesn’t look like much, but it’s a project concentrating on colour placement and I made 5 swatches until I settled on what I thought was complimentary. It’s interesting to see how colours come together and compliment each other, even when you thought they wouldn’t. This is a KnitPicks Palette stash buster. I have a lot of single colours and would like to knit them up for something useful.
