Ahh, the Sounds of Silence. After lots of rough and rowdy rebel play Peri and Gilly are fast asleep, and Harki is asleep on the couch, snoring on her sheepskin rug. Gilly and Peri run non-stop for hours on end. Now I worry that Peri has been bored up till now, but I console myself with the thought that Gilly is a novelty. Lorelai Gilmore runs to fetch the ball and bring it back!! Gilly loves a Squeaky Toy. You can see the paving is all clean and tidy and the paddle pool is at the back left in the shade.
Gilly buries her bone just like a real dog, and her nose is all grubby. Of course she wants to put her nose all over me.
Harki and Peri must hear something in the distance, because they were both too interested to look at the camera!!!
I wanted to start my Chappa'ai (Stargate ) Cardigan, I only have the fronts to knit, but I had no idea where the pattern was. I am making the pattern up as I go along and luckily I had written most of it in my Knitting Journal from last year,and the needle sizes on The Ravelry. I counted the rows just to make sure the back matched my notes, and it did!!! I am thinking of doing some short rows in the fronts: scares the willies out of me, but I have nothing to lose.
But now I have frittered the day away: sleeping after the hot night, walking The Labradors, playing with The Baby, finishing off some sewing bits and bobs and finally drawing a picture of my new Steeking Paws Cardigan:
I am a poor artist, but basically this is a jumper with a yoke and waist shaping, that will be steeked to make a cardigan**. The main colour is Mineral Green with Grass Green for the paws and another paler green the name of which I am too lazy to get up and check. I am not quite sure how it will all go, maybe it will be top down??? That would be better for the trying on and shaping part and I have made a jumper like that before. I am also not sure how large the paw prints should be: not too big, or too low(!!!!) Any comments? The Steeking Paws Prototype: Discuss.
I was just talking earlier to MrsDrWho on the phone and we realised it is only two weeks or so till Easter. I am going to help make felt Bunny Heads so we needed to find 90 minutes in her timetable. It's all set to go now. Tomorrow I have to post my Cloth and Soap Swap and then I must think about Easter.
But first, I am going to break out the 3.75mm and cast on for the fronts. I might knit them simultaneously. And it's raining. Huzzah!!!!
**NB I am NOT this shape, this is an non-artist's impression only!!!
