There has been knitting going on (especially on snow days). Below is my first sweater for me. So far so good, the pattern is 28thirty by Zephyr. I knitting it out of Malabrigo, color Stonechat. It is just beautiful. The only problem is it seems a little small. Boy am I hoping it stretches or blocks out. I bet Kris and Sara are hoping its to small!
I finished a pair of socks and this pair is close to being completed. I have to get up to the heel this weekend as sock club meets next Thursday and I want to be doing the heel there in case I have problems.
Also on the needles is Juliet - again by Zephyr. I took out the lace pattern and just went with plain stockinette stitch. I ripped this out about 3 times. Its hard to do lace and watch TV. This one is either a Christmas present or BD present, depending on how soon its done. Lots of Zephyr patterns being knitted, but they are top down with very little seeming- so thats a plus.
Next I have a question for anybody who reads this blog and has a dog. Marley sheds so much - I can't even describe it. Anyone have any good ideas on how to deal with lots and lots of dog hair? I blame this on Tom. When I went to the animal shelter he said look for soft eyes, he didn't remind me about the shedding.
I have got to get moving, sunny skies and a lawn mower are awaiting me. Also Marley is looking at me very impatiently wanting to get outside. She has been in the house a lot this week due to her not feeling well. She is banished from the barn for the time being - there are to many nasty things she liked to roll in and eat down there. You think she would have learned her lesson last week, but no its been more of the same this week. Sorry girl - I'm keeping my eye on you today.
Enjoy your weekend - may it be sunny and warm - as sunny and warm as it can be for November.
