The drive out was completely unproductive....everything I attempted to knit was later ripped out. I kept bouncing from one project to another dissatisfied with what I was seeing on the needles. When we go away I take several different yarns and needles with me, is it the same for you too?
After unpacking most of what I shoved into my bags this is what I ended up with.
Do I dare tell you what time it was on the clock while I was enjoying that margarita? Let's just say - no where near 5:00 p.m.
He's a cute little bear, I added a tufted of hair on top and a cotton tail on the back. My finishing stitches are questionable so I've set aside extra yarn and cotton tail in the event this little guy is ever loved by small hands (that would be the greatest compliment).The pattern can be found in the latest copy of Debbie Bliss Knits magazine. This bear turned out a bit larger than the one in the pattern (mine is 12 inches). I used an alpaca/acrylic blend from the local craft store and larger needles, figured "who cares what size this little guys turns out to be" and only needed one skein of each color.
Another week with weather forecast in the 90's......will I be able to wear the new small triangle scarf I'm knitting with my denim jacket? It's looking really doubtful friends.....I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will be short heat wave and keep on knitting......I'm hoping for a trip back to that fun swapmeet this coming weekend - have a good week everyone, back to my office desk and the lunch hour knitting sessions. Enjoy your week!!!
