MAKE IT STOP!!! This little one is so gassy, that even Happy sniffed the air and moved away. I'm gagging here!
I'm sorry for those who come here for actual knitting content. I've already got so many photos of the two of them, but I'll show you my Hamamelis shawl instead. :o)
This shawl took me longer than it should have. Somehow I did not get into the rhythm (oy, gag) of it. It has no restful all purl wrong side rows, but I had to stick to the chart for every row. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this shawl, loved the look of it, the moment I saw it first. And I had the most wonderful yarn to knit it with.
I made the large version, AND added a third repeat for the edge. It's still a small shawl.
Here are the specifics:
pattern: by Kirsten Kapur
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Fluffy Cat, color: Pink Pearl, 70/20/10/ Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere, 4-ply fingering, 400yds, used 147g = 588yds.
size after blocking: 29" x 63"
start-finish: Feb. 22 - March 21, 2010
I love the stitch pattern of the main body, and of course the lovely garter stitch border is what drew me in the first place.
O.K. here's one picture of the two of them:
I have to say though, after spending 3 days cooped up in the kitchen with Denny (his choice, he WANTED to be with him), Happy just wanted to get out today. He was very content chewing a bone, just outside the baby gate, looking IN.
And just now, I asked him, if he'd like to go for a car ride, and a second later you could only see the tail end of him. That's the dog who a few days ago, didn't like car rides. :o)
I wonder why they were so eager to leave. Funny, the computer screen is blurry, oh, my eyes are watering, must crack a window ...
