My current work in progress:

Geiger by Norah Gaughan, knit from Wollmeise Merino DK in the “Schwefel” colorway, using 3.25mm and 3.75mm needles.


You will be relieved to hear, I am sure, that Angelique now has a dress she likes.

Her lace dress, my own design, with the bodice based on the Seasonal Dresses pattern by Julie Williams, is knit from Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere. Angelique feels very elegant in it.

You may wonder why I am suddenly obsessed with knitting small animals. Several reasons:

  1. Julie Williams’ patterns are brilliant and the resulting animals are adorable.
  2. I can’t start knitting my August Camp Loopy project until August 1 and I don’t want to commit to a large knit right now.
  3. When it is eleventy-billion degrees with 900% humidity outside, knitting on small items seems like a good idea.

What’s not to like?

  7. Charlotte says:

    I think Angelique could use an little shawl using the same lace stitch as the dress for the cooler evenings.

  8. I just love, love the little kitties, bunnies and fox. Sooo adorable.
