Adventures with sticks and string.
Wish our agendas were as fun and cozy as yours. I hope to knit tonight. Buffy and Crookshanks are on mouse patrol in the basement. I can’t wait to see your coat finished. It’s beautiful!
Lucy gets my vote!
Looks like a very worthwhile agenda – have fun!
I had the same agenda as Lucy!
love it! Lucy looks like she’s got the right idea for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Both such beautiful pictures! Hope you two had a great Sunday!
Sounds a lot like my Sunday afternoon! Also, I recently received “The Lovely Blog Award,” and I have the opportunity to pass it on. I read your blog through my RSS reader and love your posts. Here are the rules if you choose to accept: http://365daybook.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/chain-letter/
I just finished reading your entry on “Blame the Internet” re. steeking. I had to smile, as I actually ventured fearlessly into the world of steeking, blissfully ignorant that I was supposed to be afraid. When I googled the technique, I came across the article you had written for Knitty. At the time I was knitting Jade Starmore’s “Butterfly”, and your article was for reinforcing a Norwegian piece. Regardless, I figured out by looking through your stranded/Fair Isle projects, and my beloved VY site, that 2-ply Shetland was magic string and I’ve never once had an issue with unraveling. Or fear.
I’ve also lived on the edge with Lopi wool. I just completed a coat, and could not figure out how I was going to shove the length of it through my sewing machine. I reinforced it by way of a crochet chain stitch along the top, cut the steek, and it’s already begun felting through use. The row of steek stitches are unraveled and make up a fringe along the opening.
As always, I love your work Wendy!
