Since in our house you can not sit down without having to worry about needles in your six, you will get the urge to take them and do something other than through them across the room. Well, Hannah got the urge and asked if I had some black yarn. The only black wool I had was the one my secret OneSkein pal sent me a few weeks ago. She wanted to make a hat (and did so). Hannah's always fast. Casting on was done while standing and with a little help from good old mom she was on her way. She had a pattern, but didn't bother to read it carefully (a quick glance was enough), naturally the ripping followed. Long story short, as you can see, she's wearing her Alpaca hat in black! For some reason the dogs where very interested in this finished product (while it was still on the coffee table). They usually don't bother at all with my knitting!
On the left the fruit cake ;o) for Chris's party. Can you see the skull?
And on the right is Chris (Hannah's boyfriend) with his birthday socks, knit by - moi. They fit even on his spindly legs. It's like walking on clouds (color or softness or both?) I ask.
Why is it that I spend so much time online, playing with the dogs and do anything but knitting lately? I can't figure it out. Maybe there are too many projects in my head and on the needles, that it makes me paralyzed. Don't know where to start first. Should I knit here a little, blankie? Lace? Ahhhhhhhhh! Thank god the young'ens are away for a few days, so there'll be some peace and quiet around here again. ;o)
Have a nice productive, relaxing weekend!
