And Finally, Some Knitting

The other night, Cast Away was on and you know what Knitter #2 said? She said ‘he needs to get a rain catch‘. Last summer she rubbed 2 sticks together on the ottoman and one of them turned black. She was very proud of herself. I was alarmed. Perhaps we watch too much Survivorman.

I am finished with Crinkle! It isn’t all seamed yet. I am still doing the edgings, but all the parts are made. I was hoping to have it done so I could wear it out and about tomorrow, but I don’t think there is any way I can finish all those edging bits in time for that.

In celebration, I have been working on my Luna Moth Shawl:

I am enjoying it immensely. It seems to grow in leaps and bounds when I work on it. I’ve just begun the 2nd of the 3.5 repeats it takes.

My next project is for a knit along this month. It is the Happy Hen sweater from Lucinda Guy’s Handknits For Kids. An pretty book full of adorable things for the kiddies. I think my colors are better, though:

And! I dyed some lovely red yarn today. It is almost perfect. I am practicing up for when I get some yarn to dye for doing a Thermal. One of those projects that will no doubt take me forever to get around to. Just like Crinkle did.

Notice how the yarn looks like a clown’s mouth? Scary. I think this yarn is going to be a pair of ribbed socks.

I've done the Luna Moth - it really is lovely pattern. Good yarn choice.

That giant clown mouth will give me nightmares though....
