Knitting, Dogs and More: 10/03/2004 - 10/10/2004

I was able to get quite a bit done on the KAL (Knit A-Long) Cables 101 vest while Esther slept this morning. It's my Birthday so I treated myself to knitting instead of cleaning the house. I did discover a mistake, you'll see that next. Posted by Hello

A close up of my ARGH mistake. Notice the crossover on the left. Now how the heck did I do that? Oh well, my solution is to keep going with the "mistake". In accounting we learned consistancy is very important. I don't want to rip it out and in the end I think the untrained eye won't notice it....I will but I think I can live with it. Posted by Hello

Bentley. He was my Husband and stepsons dog. He also came from the shelter and we think Sparky and Bentley were there at close to the same time so I call them parolees when they're up to mischief. Bentley is part beagle and maybe spaniel. He's very sensitive and a little hunter. Posted by Hello

Sparky a Lab Mix. He was my last foster dog, I just couldn't give him up. He's not always the brightest dog, but he is affectionate and a tease. I've started saving his hair from brushings to spin into yarn. He's definitely got enough of it to sweater a small army! Posted by Hello

>KAL (Knit A-Long) Cables 101 vest as of 10/3. I'm working the back and sides as one piece up to the armholes.  Posted by Hello

A Blog? October 6, 2004

I decided to start a blog after viewing a number of blogs related to knitting. They are very informative and fun. I have been inspired to pick up my knitting after a few years absence. I'll explain the absence later, but want to get this up and running so I can document what I'm working on and what I've completed.

The main knitting project I have going is a Cables 101 Vest with a Knit A Long (KAL Cables 101 Vest)

I also am knitting a shawl from Cozy

And...sweaters for Esther and Ethan out of Bernat's Denimstyle Child's Denim Hooded Sweater. On this I'm adding a basketweave pattern as Stocking stitch gets a little tedious. I'm also attaching the pocket using increases after the ribbing and than knitting the stiches into the front at the top. I want to do as little finishing as possible :-) Esther's is in a rose and Ethan's is in a sage green (Esther picked the color for Ethan).

Speaking of those two, to be finished this week are their CareBear costumes. I'll post pictures when they are available.

So, How do I choose what to knit when? The Cables Vest is in a dark color so it is hard to see the pattern at night or while watching TV. I work on it a little bit here and there in the morning and daytime. The shawl and the sweaters can be worked on while watching TV or chatting OR watching Esther and Ethan in the backyard. Well, that is a sizeable entry for the first issue. I'll post pictures as they become available and include some of work I've recently completed.

Take care all!
