Well, this really isn’t a good picture, and it doesn’t look like a pretty little thing…but its done and I wanted to get it posted.
My normal model, Cieara, is being completely uncooperative. I have no idea why she doesn’t want to model things for my blog at 5:00 a.m. She’s up, right? She was very grouchy at the suggestion, and suggested that I use a cat (I thought about it but this is cashmere lace – I don’t think that’s something that should be combined with cats). So sorry for the bad picture, and hopefully I’ll be able to post something next time showing it in the daylight, and on a model.
OK, for specifics:
Pattern: Pretty Thing
Yarn: Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2-ply, colorway Blueberries and Plums
Started: October 8, 2009
Finished: October 13, 2009
This is a great pattern, and I really enjoyed it. The pattern is interesting, but this is still great TV knitting. I’ve already bought more yarn to make another as a gift this Christmas. I like how its pretty close fitting – the other cowls I have are looser, and I think it will be nice to have something that fits a little more snuggly. I love the yarn – I’m so glad that I have enough to make something else with it – I think I probably have about 350 yards left. I also think I”ll be buying more of the yarn – it was so nice to knit with, and I love the finished product.
Larry just walked by with a suitcase – I think that’s my cue that its just about time to leave. We are driving today to Indiana for my nephew’s wedding. It should be a long day – and the forecast is calling for snow across the region. Super. I’ve brought two knitting projects with me (fair isle vest and socks), and I think I’m going to get a lot done!
We pick up Penny on the way home on Sunday – we are very excited and looking forward to the chaos a new puppy will bring to the house. This is the last picture we got – she is so cute! We’ve been giving the other two dogs a lot of attention, but I think their world is going to change drastically – no more sleeping all the time!
OK, I really should go – gotta pack the car and get the grouchy model moving. Have a great weekend!
