Zane Gray socks

These were my travel project for the last several months which means I only worked on them on long driving trips, meetings, in between big project or when dummy at the bridge table.

Matchmaking

It has happened again, for the third time! First I myself matched the kitchen curtains at work wearing a new sweater, a few months later a colleague matched the curtains in her office wearing a cardigan I had knitted for her, and yesterday another colleague found herself matching the wallpaper in her new cardigan!

Been a while...

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here or posted, and I've missed a lot. I hope everyone is doing well and in good spirits. That being said, in an earlier blog entry I talked about how I had messed up just as I was finishing a project (a cowl for my boyfriend) and that I started over.

Carlito Cardigan

Has anyone had a problem with the left lower front section. My pattern reads as follows:
SETUP 2X2 RIB (WS): K2, P2
ROW 1 (RS): P2, K2
Work even for [#] rows ending with a wrong side row

Begin following Front chart for your size here.

As far as I can tell from the picture there are not [#+] rows until you start the Diagonal Cables. Any suggestions?

Drama Drama Drama *Not particularly knitting related*

This weekend was the spay and neuter clinic that I always try to volunteer form and for the second time I drug Bob along for at least the first day. It's only fair that way, right? I didn't make him assist with unpacking/set up and the second day and packing up, so I thought I was being nice.

Catching up

Hi everybody,

I've been faithfully lurking, but I haven't posted in a long time. So forgive the length of this - it covers several months, and I'll try to be concise.

Last July, our friends in Boulder had their first child - a lovely little girl. I made Jared Flood's Tweed baby blanket for her. It just so happened that I finished the blanket the day she was born.
