I sadly neglected Ingeborg last weekend. I barely knit on her at all.
This is partly Lucy’s fault. She is usually very good about sleeping in my lap while I knit. But this past weekend, she kept trying to chew on Ingeborg. And I kept pulling it out of her reach and telling her “No!”
Lucy does not appreciate being told “no” about anything, and she got quite snippy with me. So to keep the peace, I put poor Ingeborg away for a while.
So I pulled her out and did a few rounds last night. I think she appreciated the attention. I guess at some point I need to find buttons for her.
And Lucy spent some time under her sun lamp in the Kitty Day Spa.
My newest WIP is my Lucky Tank.
The bottom lace is an edging that is knit sideways. I then picked up stitches on the long straight edge and am knitting up from there. The body is a 12×2 rib. Just trying to save myself from the utter boredom of a sea of stockinette stitch.
I love the Jaeger 4-ply silk I’m using. and I love the color — dark chocolate brown. I feel as though I’m knitting with chocolate mousse. Hmmmmm . . . it makes me hungry just thinking about it.
Luanne Test Knitting
Anyone feel like test knitting Luanne, the tank pictured in yesterday’s blog? I need a knitter for the 35.5″ size and for the 44.5″ size. You’ll need to supply your own yarn between 500 — 800 yards (I reckon) DK weight — gauge is 22 sts and 30 rows to 4″. Email me using the “Contact Me” link from the sidebar if you are interested.
**Update** — I’ve got all my test knitters, thanks!
Critter Knitters Update
I neglected to mention yesterday that Liz updated the Blankets Received page. Wow! There are a whole lot of fabulous blankets there! And thank you Liz, to you and your kitty spokesmodels, for doing such a lovely job of documenting their arrival!
