I spent some time last knit blissfully knitting with my new yarn from Deb at Cashmere Capes shop. It is Knoll yarn called Coast. 55% lambswool 45% cotton. Color way Nimbus.
Now I’m not one to double yarn and be happy about the process, but so far so good. I think my previous problems were with doubling wools that had fuzzy fibers and would misbehave with another strand of another yarn and cause craziness for me. So far no craziness.
Oh, and I’ve already abandoned the vest in garter. So the new pattern is by a very cool designer and I like a lot of her patterns. I believe her site /name is Y. Alexander . Look Under the Ravelry search DanDoh. I’m knitting LINKs.
Now I have to say, I also really like this pattern. But I think it would be a better fit on Meredith or someone with nice skinny arms. Professor Kim? Allison?
This guy is my cat treat guy. He is the one who runs for treats when I shake the bag. I’m so unique: I say, “Here kitty, kitty kitty ” . Right? He comes barreling through the house when I do this.
This one eats large amounts at one time and spends the entire day digesting it. Oh Tanky. We had to take the free feeder away for him to lost some weight. I get it Tank. I can’t walk away from an open bag of chips till they are gone. We are one in the same.
OH my gosh all your go get that cat support was fantastic. I thought I’d better keep my husband. So I’m looking for a home for that darling cat that I am not adopting….
Finally, I am overjoyed that seed packets are out at my Home Depot. It may be 28 degrees with snow predicted, but there is hope! I plan a big field of cosmos this year. I’m going to have to screen them off from the deer until they are tall, but I want to do this in an area my neighbor and I both will enjoy. I am successful with sowing them in early Summer/Late spring. They don’t do well transplanted from seedlings, in my experience.
Please know I treasure every leaf and bud and flower you show on your blogs right now. No leaves, no buds, no flowers here ….and none expected for a good 6 weeks or so.
Happy Sunday . 40th Anniversary of the MIRACLE ON ICE . USA!! We watched the movie last night. We never tire of it. My miracle on ice, would just be to not trip on any ice this year.
