I also decided that I should finish up the cardigan that I started for my daughter last summer. Me bad, I know.
Duplicate stitch bear on the front.
Now, I have a little gripe with our new kitty, Ramsay. You see, everytime I pick up my knitting, no matter where I'm sitting, he decides that this is the perfect opportunity to step onto my shoulder, walk on top of my head, slide down my face, [let's say I'm not fond of a kitty's arse, or anyone else's for that matter, in my face] into my lap where he plops his wee body onto my knitting. I then pick him up and put him on the floor and tell him to go be productive and catch mice, or pick on the dog. His reply to me is loud and clear when he proceeds to go through the entire ritual again. I think I'll build myself a cage to hide in with my knitting.
Back to the talk of the Knitting Olympics that our wonderfully inventive Stephanie, A.K.A. Yarn Harlot thought up for us to participate in. I've decided it was the perfect time for me to dive in and make the Sanquhar gloves. Hmmm, lace weight yarn, 1.50mm needles and colorwork. I'm out of my freaking mind! I'm competitive though and you can be sure that I'll do my best to finish them by the close of the Olympics. I'll be looking forward to everyone's progress that has joined. Good luck to all the participants!
Keep On Knitting...
