FO Friday: Did I say I am getting tired of making these things?

On WIP Wed I showed you the developing selection of dickies/collars whatever…
Well another one hits the dust! I think, so far it is may favourite. Purple and blue are my colours of choice. I plan to make a Roarin cloche to match. However the furry moth managed to unzip the knitting bag and nibble the skein! I now have 3 balls of varying sizes to make my hat.

Number 3: Worsted in Cascade 220 on 4.5mm

One becomes 3!

Under interrogation she insisted she was at the store buying cat food. DH and DS said they saw her there.

What who me? I wasn't there!

She is very lucky that she is cute!

WIP Weds: I am getting tired of dickies!

Hello fellow Bloggers, its wednesday again and I am still making dickies.It has become a test of character, almost a quest one might say.  As you know, if you have been reading this blog. I have been developing a Dicky pattern in 4 weights of yarn; Bulky, Aran, Worsted and Dk. Alright maybe I didn’t think my production order through as thoroughly as I should have. Did you know that as the yarn becomes finer that the same size project will take exponentially longer? Yup, workin on number 3 before I figured this bit of news out. Duh?

FO Friday: Another Dicky

Hello nice to see you :0)

It has been a wet week here in Ontario Canada. Needless to say the garage is still not painted. However the boys are happy enough to put it off.

As mentioned on Wednesday I have finished another Dicky. This one is in Aran weight yarn, Cascade 220 on 5mm needles.

2 of 4 Dickies in various weights of yarn

I have noticed that some of you have been recording what you have been reading and have decided to share my current book too.

The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands, this is number 10 of 16 in the Argeneau Series about an immortal family of vampires. This author has a wicked sense of humour. I have just purchased the most recent book and have enjoyed rereading the the previous ones in preparation to read the new ones. If you want to view my reading list for 2011 look here.

WIP Wed: Geepers it’s wednesday again!

A late Happy Thanksgiving for any Canadians among you.

We are having a can’t decide weather dayspitting rain then overcast rinse and repeat. Basically my favourite weather…Not!

Work in progress, trying to get a clear day to hound the boys into painting the garage door, paint acquired, brushes etc, boys however disappeared when project was under discussion. They are temporarily free till the weather improves.

I wonder if this will be done before winter sets in?

Well the second Dicky is finished, here is a sneak peek in aran yarn.

Will post finished object on Friday

Working on number three in worsted yarn.

FO Friday: The Cat in the Hat strikes again!

Welcome to another fun filled FO Friday.

This promises to be  a wild day today, I have physiowww and lunch with MIL. DH, DS and I all have Dr. appointments in different towns, and then I get to pass out on the couch!

On WIP wed. I teased you with a peek at the yarn for Thing 1 & Thing 2 (ala Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess) Somewhat appropriate considering Dr. visits today. For more details look here.

Thing 1 & Thing 2

I am also developing a pattern for a Dicky  in multiple weights of yarn, just finished number one. For more detail look here. More on this later.

Nice seeing you, leave a comment and come back soon.

WIP Wed: Must get to work on Christmas Presents

Good morning all. Here we go, I have started a new Christmas sock for one of the boys.

They both have generic plushy fake fur red socks. I didn’t pack them with the other christmas stuff last year, they got missed in the clean up and ended up in my studio on the sewing table. My favourite yarn store Soper Creek Yarn is doing a class in knitted christmas socks. Basically how to knit a sock using large needles, cool. Well I already know how, however I was inspired to replace embarrassing christmas socks.

Pattern: Light Foot by Red Bird knits

I am also working on another two little hats.  These remind me of Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the Dr  Suess books.

Thing One - Patons Wild Lizard

Thing 2 - Patons Astra Happy Days
