And I’m still knitting away at Fulmar. Ooh! Ooh! Update pic:
It’s progressing — looks like I’ll have the first sleeve done by the weekend. And hopefully early next week there’ll be a pictorial on my website about knitting the shoulder strap onto the body of a sweater. Maybe on Tuesday.

I Love Knitter’s Review!
If you’ve never been there, please do check out Knitter’s Review. It’s an online magazine, a discussion forum, and more. Including a boutique. I just got my holiday cards I ordered from the Knitter’s Review boutique in the mail yesterday and they’re lovely. Gonna write some cards today. There’s lots of other great stuff there, including a 2003 “Year in Yarn” calendar. Too cute!
A departure today: Not old knitted stuff. Though I do still have more old knitted stuff! Click here to check it out.
That’s my little tiny Christmas tree. The old stuff I’m talking about is my collection of felt ornaments. I made all those little suckers about ten years ago. I bought some kits to make them. All the kits said “fast and easy to make.” I’m here to tell you that those little bastards were neither fast nor easy to make. They were difficult and time-consuming. But they are cute, so it was worth the bother.
The moral of the story: don’t believe everything you read on a crafts kit!
