I had a really busy weekend (which included yarn dying - more on that later this week) and have spent the last few days trying to keep from under the ever-mounting pile of housework. I've done a little knitting, but have been flitting from project to project instead of committing. As a result, I don't have much to say - but picture are better anyway, right?
Here are a few things going on around chez Wandering Cat.
I've got two pairs of socks on the needles - one for Dave and one for myself. Oddly enough - neither are in our yarn.
Dave's are just plain vanillas in Rainy Days and Wooly Dogs Asphodel (100% merino)The colour is "Frumious Bandersnatch." This yarn was a present from Mom and bought solely because she knows how much I want a Bandersnatch of my own (and a Cheshire Cat) and this is about as close as I'm getting to having one.
Coincidentally, the yarn I'm using for my socks is also from Mom.
You may recall me mentioning I wanted some Twisted Fibre Art Kabam (Merino/Bamboo blend) in Warlock.... well Mom scored some for me in a Rav trade (though once she got it she didn't want to give it up). I'm doing up a little chevron design to take advantage of the gorgeous stripes.
And while we are on the topic of Mom and sock yarnThis weekend she gave me a lovely green skein of Sanguine Gryphon Eidos. I'm not sure what colour it is - it was part of a sock kit and it didn't name the colour.
I guess I'm really going to have to knit her those Campfire socks now!
I've done a little shawl knitting (it's October and I still have three shawls to go!) and I started designing a pair of fingerless gloves. The gloves are getting frogged because I've had an even better idea for them!
All is good on the kitty front. Peno hasn't eaten any more fish, Tux is taking his needles like a trooper, and Rocky.......Rocky has taken to stalking my mouse hand from behind the computer monitor. *Sigh*
