My partner and I decided to send our show puppy to the Poodle Club of America show in Maryland this week. Well, we got a call this morning that she placed second in her puppy class.
Finished a Fair Isle vest that was designed by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I used Jamieson and Smith Shetland Wool and 4.00 mm needles. I really like the drape this fabric has.
Lattice and seed stitch square is an interesting square, the posibilities of making a sweater like this are great, lots of work. Seed stitch is a very pretty stitch.
Sorry I have not been around for a while...Lent and Easter take a lot out of us clergy types. I have barely had time to work on a couple of sleeves I started before Ash Wednesday!
After having done 4 socks (2 pair) cuff down, and messing up the seam at the end, I have decided to work on a pair now toe up. So far so good. Awesome cast on and toe increases and onto the foot.
My knitting buddy, Beth, found this fun and funky pattern for the Lock Nest Hat by designer Teri Barr in Interweave Felt magazine (Special Issue 2007) and has already knit up two for herself.
My Most Beloved puts up with a lot when it comes to my knitting and fiber addiction. I am so lucky to have such a loving and supportive partner. He has long had one request... Cashmere Socks!
I finished the Baby Uggs Booties that I have been working on. There are a quick knit, really, but I did the Second Sock using the wrong size needles so it became the first sock of the second set!
Okay, to say I have a partner with quirks is a bit of an understatement, but Lord knows I love him and will do what I can to make him happy.
I guess it's my day for completing projects. I have some extra time between jobs.
