Julie took a picture of Jeanie for me. So there you go, I think it looks pretty much the same.

Just made it...

I got Jeanie in just under the wire for Julie and the Knitter's Fair on Saturday. I ran short on yarn so I'll have to lengthen the collar later. And with all the running around I had to do on Friday, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. So, I'll leave you with the pic from the book and all my blocked pieces till I take my own.Pattern and Yarn: Rowan Cocoon 10 balls for the medium size
Needles: 6mm & 7mm
The yarn was like butter to knit with and the cables just popped. And with the large needles it went quite quickly. (Quicker if I had less interruptions.)

And after that I got to enjoy a little bath time with Miss "P" and Miss "R". This girls are just growing up too fast for me.

Now I'll be knitting up a succession of baby and kids stuff because it seems I'm at that age where all my friends are having grandchildren. Then maybe I might get something knit for myself. Stay tuned.

Well, I was motoring right along until I saw this....... one of these things is not like the others!

So I had to tink back half the left front, but it's fixed now! I thought these things only happened to the Harlot. Must concentrate.

You can check out our latest dye party results here! I'll post mine this weekend after I skein them.

Long weekends.........

This has been one of those long weekends I just didn't want to end.

Saturday I found a couple of lazy cats who had snuck into the wool room and made themselves comfortable. Yes, that is Duece laying on a lovely nest of merino. Ssh, don't tell Leslie. He's never bothered with the wool before.And Russell is just happy with any cardboard box.
I've been working on this new project for Julie. A cabled cardigan from the new Rowan Cocoon. The yarn is like butter. It's knit on 7mm needles and going quite quick.
The daughter and I spent a girls day in the back yard dying some more yarn. It was alot of fun doing it outside and this is much nicer to look at than laundry drying.
And Lady-dog ended up having a play date with two wandering Retrievers. We finally found they're owners looking for them, they just moved in a couple of doors down and I guess they decided to check out the neighbourhood. And now that they know Lady has a pool I think we'll be seeing more of them. You know how that is.
Can I please stay home the rest of the week?
