I had intended to post yesterday, but by the time I got around to the computer, I decided to wait until today - so I'd have better pics.
You see, when I was watching the monsters... I mean, beautiful children... last weekend, I started a little baby cardigan for Miss Nora. The Silver Cardigan - and I was knitting it up in a lovely, rich purple Fat Cat. I worked away on it Sunday, and was a little more than halfway done when I realized I wasn't going to have enough yarn. Not even close. I could try to dye up another skein, but chances are it wouldn't be a perfect match, and I'd have to alternate rows anyway, which meant frogging.
Since I was going to have to frog either way, I dove back into my stash. I came out with a nice bright red yarn - Dalegarn Svale. It's not my favourite yarn to knit with (I made my colleague's shawl out of some in pink earlier this year and it's very splitty), but this year is all about using up stash isn't it? It's a cotton/viscose/silk blend, which is nice for a baby - the cotton is nice and washable and the silk (just a touch) makes it nice and soft and drapey.
And, here's a picture of Mom's cat Deuce, I took while I was there on Saturday:
