He is doing better today and is with his other Grandma today (because I had to get to work). I did have some good knitting time when he was not clinging to me to be cuddled.
I started a new shawl....I am on row 10...on row 9 is a stitch called a nupp...I think it is from estonian knitting...let me just say it is not natural...because on row 10, you have to p7tog.....no, that is not a typo....purl SEVEN together.....it is very hard and makes me want to scream....I will be happy when I am past that part....but I know this shawl will be worth it...it is a gorgeous shawl and I am really loving the colors of this knit picks yarn.
I worked quite a bit on my waves scarf...I just started skein 3 of 4 so I am 1/2 way done.
This past Friday Jaime went out of town on a long motorcycle ride so I was home and knitted only on my socks....I got quite a bit done (at least I think I did).....almost done with gusset on first sock.
Then, there is the Miss Babs scarf....I am on the 3rd color of 7 colors.....so according to my handy dandy chart I made myself, I am 33.93% done...yippee!!
Last August I blogged about a yarn bowl I got myself.....well, I love it! And recently the maker of that yarn bowl asked me how I liked it...I realized I did not use it very often because I am afraid to break it....so I decided I did not want to be afraid anymore...and I want to use it (what good is it if I do not use it very often)....So I have plans to use it much more often...doesn't my yarn look awesome in it?
What I did not mention is....back in September or October of last year I asked this same lady to make some coffee mugs I saw on a show called "Mountain Men"....the mugs were for Jaime....he loves them....so I want share a picture of the mugs and also point you to Karan's etsy shop...she sells pots and glass and is welcome to take special orders.
I loved these mugs so much...Karan had a second set that she saved for backup that I ended up buying....They will not spill coffee!!!
I was also contacted about doing some commission work......it is a good fried of mine from Facebook...I have not seen her in about 10 years or so, but I would love to knit this item for her...it is actually for her 12 year old son....he wants a dr who scarf. She sent me this link and I am going to see if I can get all the yarn and knit this up for him....I told her that it would take a while so not to be in a hurry.....you know how I am with my ba-jillion projects at one time.....I actually did a little bit of yarn organizing in my room....I have 2 bins full of wollmeise yarn....I knew I had a lot but I did not know I had that much...I really need to go on a yarn diet (she says after saying she is going to buy yarn for her friend's son's scarf).
Anyway....sorry I was late...but I leave you with a cute picture of Antonio playing with my stitch markers.....
Happy Happy Knitting everyone!
