Ooh! Ooh! Isn’t it cute?
I’ve been on quite a roll with the socks lately. I went through a period of sock doldrums this past Spring, but now I’m back in the sock-saddle again.
As it were.
But after I knit the mate to this little cutie, I am going to knit a pair to give to my dad for Christmas. That would be my dad who has size 13 feet.
You can be durn sure his socks will be knitted from sport weight, not sock weight yarn.
Knitting Kitty Kuddles
(Sorry about the kutesy spelling there.)
We’ve had some discussion in the comments about lap cats and knitting. Lucy is the first cat I’ve had who will happily lie in my lap and let my knitting in progress not only touch her, but lay on her, drag over her, etc. It does not phase her. Given an opportunity, however, she would gladly chew on my prized ebony needles.
She will never be given that opportunity.
Oh, I forgot to show you — look what I got:
This is Daletta, ordered from the wonderful Bea Ellis, to knit this, the design I mentioned in my blog a couple of weeks ago.
This is design #10903, from Dale book 109.
Don’t you all think this looks like a Solveig Hisdal design? I bet she designed it. I mentioned that to Bea, who told me that Hisdal did design for Dale, and that Dale doesn’t credit individual designers, so it’s not mentioned in the pattern book.
What do you guys think?
Have a great weekend! See you Monday.
