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.

For more more FO Friday pop over to to Tami’s Blog and see what others have been making this week. Thanks for visiting and come back soon :0)
