Now how did that happen?

Turn your back for a minute and suddenly you've cast on for something else...Mom and I are working on a little stripe experiment for a colour series I'd like to release near Valentine's. She did this up and I just had to try it out. It's not quite what we were envisioning so it's back to the dye studio I think, but I'm going to make this pair anyway, since I've started.

And since we are on the news of stripeys - the shop will be updated at about noon tomorrow (Thursday, November 11) with some lovely stripey combos that Mom has been doing. But I think you're gonna have to act fast to get some...

I finally got the other half of the Holden shawlette pinned and blocking tonight. It should be dry by tomorrow but with it getting dark so early now, don't expect pictures before Saturday.

To tide you over until then - here's a picture of Rocky doing Rocky stuff.

It's amazing how mysteriosly things get cast on. Is this going to be socks?

Something new on the needles? I'm giving you a stern look right now, wondering what's happening with the other two shawls!

But, I imagine, with all the yarn dying going on around you, the temptation might be too much!

That Rocky is too funny ! Stripey socks or mittens ? Whatever , it looks good anyways .

Please don't tempt me with the yarn , just blew the budget on yarn for baby knits . However there is a birthday not too far off , I don't mind getting gifts early ...

New yarn always gets in the way, doesn't it! Lovely!

I used to have a cat whose favorite toy was a paper grocery bag - though the poor bag seldom survived longer than about 10 minutes...
