Isn’t this just the cutest thing? I’m talking about the one on the right, although the one on the left is kinda cute too. This is my eldest son with his little Chinese Crested, Blue. This is the dog badly in need of a handknitted sweater. Well, maybe not right away, but at least by fall for those cold, damp English winters. I have a pattern picked out and hopefully can begin and finish it while I’m there. I think they pretty much have the wedding plans well in hand, so there shouldn’t be too much for us to do. Except shop for a hat!
And here it is – an honest to goodness FO!! That’s Finished Object for you non-knitters out there. This is a multidirectional scarf from Karen Baumer’s free pattern. I can’t seem to make any of the links to her pattern work, but if you Google it, you can find a PDF to download. The funny thing about this is that I kind of introduced everyone around here to the pattern and everyone’s finished one except me. This is done in Noro Silk Garden and was a joy to knit. I’ve decided that I have to knit on something else except the Mediterranean Shawl or I will truly begin to hate it. It may mean that the shawl won’t be done in time for the wedding, but so be it. I want to like it when I’m done and there will be plenty of special occasions to wear it.
You will notice on the sidebar that I was successful in signing up for some webrings. I think I’m getting the hang of this! I don’t think the Knitting Bloggers is activated yet, though. I joined the Master Knitters ring in the hopes that it will get me motivated to start working on it again. I pulled out my notebook and I really am quite far along on Level I – I only have four swatches to go and the writing. After all the papers I’ve written for school lately, it should be a piece of cake!
