My sleeves are lonely for the fronts and back of the You Only Rib Twice cardigan. I love the way the sleeve are pooling. I adore pooling and the way the colours weave about is a little bit mesmerising!!
I have seamed one sleeve. Mattress stitch is so good, I can barely see there is a seam, well except for the colours not matching. I have cast on for the back, I am making it longer so I cast on more stitches. The garter rib makes a wider fabric than ordinary rib, so after a huge wodge of garter rib, ordinary K2 P2 rib will give the cardigan some shaping.
Here's the proper finished edging on my Treasure Island (Lace) scarf. It looks yellow, it must be the dull Autumn light affecting the camera because it is very green in real life. I wear this a lot with my aqua greens, the limey green looks great with aqua.
At the Craft & Quilt Fair I only made one purchase: some green material. I think I see green chillies, green grapes, green lettuce [perhaps Cos], green cabbage and finally limes. MrsDrWho bought a fat eighth of every fruit and vegetable which will make a fabulous Greengrocer quilt!!
It has been so cold in the mornings that there are puddles with ice over them when we go for our walk. Lots of mud too, and muddy paddy paws!! I have taken to being a little organised and we get the Dog walking clothes all prepared in the bedroom the night before. Then it's a quick leap from the bed into the dog walking clothes, and the shoes out by the door, and we are ready to go. As long as I can find my little ear bud things for listening to the news etc while we walk.
It is like The Olden Days on our couch now. Lorelai Gilmore has taken Peri's spot and Peri has taken Harki's. Peri and Gilly together are smaller than Harki and Peri together, so there is actually room for me on the couch!!
Peri is looking particularly gorgeous, though I do notice she's getting a little paler and white around her muzzle. She's getting older. I think she's an OAP in dog years, though you'd never know the way she runs and plays.
Miss Lorelai Gilmore is also cute, but her ears make me laugh!!! Gilly is the most obedient pup, she always comes and is an excellent sitter when she does come. There is often a treat!! She looks so serious. She must be homing in on a treat.
On Mondays I always talk on the phone to my mum, so I must get timers on DVD recorders set and my knitting all ready to go. I'll make a quick cup of tea at 7pm and then I will fine. Now I just have to think about tomorrow's cooking and the letter 'J'.......
