It must be summer, fur balz are sleeping under the influence everywhere.
While I've been slaving away; knitting.
Another string bag completed. This one knitted from Erin’s pattern,
was fast and fun. It took me Sunday to Sunday to knit, so you should be able to knit this in about 2 hours.
The string for this was gifted to me by Nancy. Hemp For Knitting in a DK weight color #102 or chocolate brown for those of us who like a more scientific term for colors. I used almost 2 skeins (almost 300 yds) and some beads I had by my chair. Doesn't everyone?
I liked this very much, thanks Erin! I'm going to plagiarize myself on the String it Along site
just to save a little time. What's that blue thing off to the side of this finished bag you say?
I do believe that would be a first sock! The Lacy Summer Sock from Knitting Lingerie Style.
These are knit on US size 3 dpns in Knit Picks' Bare fingering weight that I dyed with Wilton's food dye. I'm getting gauge so I'm one happy camper. I had to make socks so I can use the blockers I bought from Becky. Go there! Contest! I'll wait.
A big THANK YOU! to Michelle for cheering me up again when I needed it and always
Linus on the other hand, is not at all interested in dogs or projects of mine, unless he's in the mood to play that is. But mostly, he just shows his great enthusiasm as much as possible.
