Saturday Showin Off, Stitch Markers and Shawland



I am showing off my nephew Dashielle today.
Gorgeous Gordon Setter boy in Minnesota. 
Don't you agree? 


 Below is an unnecessary thank you from Wandering Cat Studios for buying yarn to help pay vet bills.  Look at those sweet stitch markers.   Thanks so much. 
 Yesterday was frogging day for me. 
Both knits were victims of not enough yarn
syndrome.  The gold almost socks will be a hat.  (someday)
The speckled while fingerless was a case of running out as well.
I don't know what it will morph into one day. 
If I leave a knit sit for too long, I usually end up ripping it out. 

Good pal Linda who works in the OR at spay neuter with me
made a fantastic pair of Fiddle head mittens.  
Alas, my image was too dark and I can't show you hers, but here is the link to the pattern.

Good bye Soshi Olympics. 
It's been very fun to knit to you. 
I did finish two hats during the games. 
How about you?

Dashielle is VERY handsome. I love setters.

My Olympic knitting wasn't too bad. I made progress on my afghan. I finished Steve's birthday socks. I cross stitched a bookmark and I got a start on a new cross stitch project and a pair of socks for me.

I loved watching the olympics too-I got my quilt finished except for all the words I am going to add, and last night I made my first hexies-loved it

What did I finish? Four pairs of baby booties, prompted by the birth of a few sweet children in our area, a pair of socks, and a small Fisherman's Gansey (on 2 mm needles)

But besides that we also celebrated this weekend... less knitting time. Our 25th wedding anniversary was on the 21st, as well as my birthday.

I haven't seen a setter in ages. He really is gorgeous.
I am going to miss the Olympics playing in the background of my day. I do have the World Cup to look forward to and there is always the Tour de France (Fleece).
I finished a bit of this and a bit of that. I really should have been finishing up what I already had started but where's the fun in that?

That is one snowy photo, Kathy! Cute dog. I am looking forward to the Iditarod!

Frogged a sweater yesterday too. I just had to seam it together. Oh well have to figure something else out what to make.
I know what you make it will be beautiful.

The white would be enough to make the mitts with shorter cuffs.

What a beautiful dog! I can't see the stitch markers, but I'll take your word that they're cute. Are they cats? Sounds like you've been quite productive during the Olympics! I definitely have not. And I am not a prolific enough knitter to want to do anything with a knitted dishcloth except frame it and hang it on the wall. :-) Thanks for stopping in at Cranberry Morning!

That's a great picture of the setter.

I don't like to frog...and you frogged two projects??? Horrors!Ha.

I made some headway on my lacy scarf during the Olympics, and I'm sorry to see them end. I stayed up late, late, late last night and watch the skaters one more time. They are fantastic.

i finished nothing, started a few things, frogged them all. I need to get my rear in gear.
Hugs,
Meredith

We just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped out. You guys really made a huge difference. The growth's constant bursting was getting really stressful near the end (for both me and the cat) and it would have taken much longer to afford the surgery without all of you.
Thank you, once again

I like the stitch markers. Lovely dog.

Beautiful pup. Very little knitting here, but Dogwood Deals are done, so I might have a moment to unload the dishwasher and knit ... especially if we get FEET of snow on Monday.
