I have been contemplating Moss stitch. I'm knitting a face cloth - Orange You Glad I Made This? - and I quite like the effect of Moss stitch as the border. I do a cable cast on with an odd number of stitches in K1 P1 Rib and then I launch into K1 P1 rib for each row. I saw that this meant the first two rows were Rib, rather than Moss stitch. So I experimented and did the same cast on, but with a P1 K1 Rib and then K1 P1 Rib for the first row. I am much happier with the latter (on the right) than the former (on the left), it's Moss stitch from the get go.
I have acute hearing, actually I have lots of cute earrings!! MrsDrWho's sister, MrsSingapore (the erstwhile MrsMacau) sent me a slew of earring which match my green spotty skirt to a T, picking out all the colours perfectly!! (they're on the left)
Mrs Emerald went overseas and brought me back earrings from Turkey (top right) and then underneath from Slovakia and Prague. (middle right) Down the very bottom are some earrings MrsDrWho gave me for Christmas, there are two pairs but I was too lazy to get the others.
MrsSingapore also sent me this- a Fortune Lion String Puppet, or as I like to call it, a Potential Labrador Toy!! I shall have to keep up out of the way!!
MrsDrWho asked me if she could bring anything back from Singapore for me. I said maybe some wool?? My wish is her command!!! Yes, that's right, wool from Spotlight in Singapore where they are apparently exceedingly excited about wool from Australia!!!!!
In Labrador news, Harki is happy and likes to lie on her blanket on the asphalt so she can see inside, up the stairs and down to the fence in case there is a treat!! UncleDutch came yesterday and did heaps of cutting back, sweeping up and tidying for me. I do so appreciate it!! Harki looks beautiful, we've had a walk today and lots of plays with balls and plastic bags!!
And here are Peri and Lorelai Gilmore up the clean and tidy un-jungly steps. The picture is a bit wonky so you have to lean slightly to the right to make it level.
I am off to Knitting in the Pub which is organised by The DarksideKnitter (Ravelry Link) and I am taking my Orange You Glad I Made This? knitting with me. I'm doing a knotty pattern to make it look dimply like orange skin, well trying.
I'll leave you with a little video of Lorelai Gilmore tormenting and teasing The Big Dogs. Harki is growling at the beginning and Lorelai decides she will annoy Peri instead. Watch while she bites Peri's legs and then her face and takes no notice of me. Notice, however, how patient and good Peri is!!
