Fable is Stalled
I seamed up one of the sides of my Fable Ribbon Shell, and it looks crappy. It’s stalled until I can get myself to one of Patty’s drop-ins and get some real professional help. Hello. My name is Mary, and I am a seaming idiot. I have to get some serious help on this finishing stuff. Until then, Fable is languishing. Hopefully, Silvia is doing better on hers.
In the meantime, while we in Southern California have been experiencing these colder than usual evenings (like in the ’40’s, totally!), I knitted up a ribbed beanie for myself with some stash Kureyon. I really disliked this picture of me, so all you get is this tiny picture of just the top part of my head. Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of yourself? Thank goodness I don’t have to do it too much.
Project: Ribbed Beanie (4×4 rib) by Woolie Wormhead
Yarn: Noro Kureyon 1 ball of color #157
Needles: Inox US sz 7 16″ circular
Start: January 14
Finish: January 15
Thoughts: Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I love this pattern and Noro’s changes of color keep this from becoming boring. It’s a tad short, but I can live with it.
I’m also working on finishing up the Cat Bordhi socks from the December Knitty Gritty episode where I was a knitster. I figured I should finish them up and they would be my last Sock-a-Month 2 sock. Sock-a-Month 3 sign ups are going on, so head over and put your name on the list. I like doing this 6 month kal because it helps me keep sock knitting on the front burner, while working on other projects.
I gotta crank out a pair of Fetchings for a friend who is moving to Northern California in 2 weeks, so hopefully I’ll be able to finish that off, so I can start Wicked.
Today is Sweetie Boy’s 10th birthday. Hard to believe. He’s no longer a baby, toddler, little boy, little kid. He’s a kid now, a regular kid, a big kid. But he’s still my baby. Happy Birthday, Sweetie Boy!
