That’s right. I’ve abandoned Abalone. I hate it. It sucks. It’s ugly. It’s boring. Yuck, yuck, bleah, bleah, pooeys, pooeys!
Nah . . . just kidding. I still love Abalone. But I have abandoned it, though only temporarily.
You see, last summer Matt of Threadbear Fiber Arts asked me if I’d test knit a fair isle pattern for a teddy bear sweater, and I agreed. The project heated up a couple of weeks ago and I received the yarn:
Late Sunday night I received the pattern, so I started knitting it today. So Abalone is on hold until I finish the teddy bear sweater. I’m knitting the largest size (for a bear with a 19″ chest) so it’ll take a little while. Hmmmm . . . it looks like it might fit Lucy . . .
No, that’s a bad idea.
Also today, I felted my last Booga Bag that I finished a week or so ago. Pre-felted:
This one’s going to my mom’s friend and neighbor.
Lucy had a busy day as well.
Back to work today. Have a bitchin’ Tuesday!
