A woman in the ThreeBagsStudio today was knitting up this child's sweater. She swore to me it is easy and fast!
It is NANTASKET and she's using Encore Chunky.
She's making about a 4 T size.
I may have to cast on one.
She said you start with the ribbed bottom and it seems enormous, but you then do decreases ...like a reverse ruffle and continue upwards to the gansey portion.
I love getting ideas from other people.
(by the way a new post is up at Threebagsfullcorner.blogspot.com. Thank you all for the ongoing support over there!)
My little goblin is at the back gate.
I need to decorate my front porch....I'm thinking lots of spider webs...
Huge thanks to Meredith for her wise words re: the top I thought I'd knit someday (on yesterday's post.) Phew, thank goodness she knows I'd be very disappointed in the end. A friend who keeps your knit life in check, is a good one!
Mr. Beatles is tough to photograph. I took advantage of his sitting on a white towel near the water fountain. He's such a honey.
Miss Pie had a reaction to her rabies booster. She was hot...104 degrees and coughing and lethargic. Not our crazy kitten at all.
My WonderVet knows Pie is a bit of a puzzle and always has been. We don't really know why she is blind from cataracts...
So two shots later: one steroid shot,
one benadryl injection,
we headed home.
You know she's sick if she lets you take a rectal temp on her....
Today she's good as new, and that thermometer is brightly labeled as hers!
By the way we still need your prayers to catch our friends lost cat. He's been seen 4 times since Sunday...seems he's moving into back yards now...
We remain worried and hopeful.
