Well, the kids are back to school today. It was a long weekend. The weather was so rotten with the rain, snow and sleet. And, of course, the frigid temps! Unfortunately, not a lot of knitting done this weekend. I worked a bit on Cameron’s ribbed scarf. I think I hate that Knitaly yarn worse than I did before. There was a break in the skein. No knot–just a break. Has anyone ever encountered anything like that in the middle of a pull skein?
My sister came over with her two kids. She was wearing last years Christmas scarf. This scarf was a one hour wonder knit in On Line Linie Maxima. I think it was a seed stitch on 19’s! I had the #19 needles from a shawl I attempted to knit in Fiesta La Boehme. I hated it and the yarn remains in balls in my knitting bag. (Does anyone have a good pattern for 2 skeins of La Boheme? ) My sister, Liz, also had her Booga Bag–this year’s Christmas gift. While Liz declined to be photographed, Tristan, her oldest son, never passes up an opportunity to pose.
Today, I have to mail off the Felted Kitty Bed I made for my friends cat, Cal the Wonder Cat. It was a lot of fun to knit and felt. I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky and worsted (held doubled) along with Lion Brand Fun Fur for the trim. We don’t have a kitty due to allergies so Owen’s little kitty I bought for him in Paris modelled for the picture. Doesn’t that little kitty look French?
It is a busy day, so I don’t know if I will get much time to knit today. But I will try! Have a great day.
