I wore my rainbow colored cadet cap to Gay Days at Disney yesterday. Had a great time and got several nice compliments from people there including a few who asked where they could get one. One person on the bus that our church chartered offered to steal it, but I reminided him that stealing is a sin and offered to make him one.
All in all a great day and had a fun time wearing my new creation.
Here is the picture of the afghan I've started for my sister. It is from the Holiday 2003 issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting.
Well, until two days ago I had nothing on the needles. Scandal! Nothing on the needles! You've got to be joking! So, I started thinking. I've got a grand nephew coming in August and a sister who asked me to make an afghan for her months ago and which I had started having knit two strips in a leafy lace pattern that I found in an old knitting pattern book.
I have time and know that I'm going to knit up a teddy bear from a Debbie Bliss book that I have which won't take me long. So, for now, I've decided to get back to sis' afghan, but I'm just not liking the way the lace strips are looking. Not happy with them at all. So, I decided to scrap those and rethink her whole afghan. She wants sagey greens was all she said and I have a light an dark one already purchased. Ye Olde Red Heart cause she's very allergic to all animal fibers it seems.
Some asked that I post pictures of my recently completed projects. My niece's sweater/shrug set is in the mail to her and I have no pictures of it, but I do have pictures of the two hats I've made.
That's me in the pics BTW.
Just wanted to say a quick hello. I just joined the site and am already enjoying it. I've learned to knit when I was probably 8 or 9, but have been knitting regularly for the last 10 years or so.
My partner and I live in Clearwater, Florida. Don't currently have anything on the needles (GASP!) but just finished two of the cadet caps from the current issue of knitty and a sweater/shrug set for my neice who is graduating this month.
