My current work in progress:

Freshet, by Irina Anikeeva for Brooklyn Tweed’s Wool People 13, knit from Rowan Softyak DK in the Steppe colorway, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.

Back to What Passes for Normal

It was back to work today for me. Whee.

And back to my regularly scheduled knitting projects. I don’t believe that I ever showed you that I completed my first Bamboo sock:

And a close-up:

I finished that last week before I left for Oklahoma. And I’ve made some decent progress on the second sock:

I’m also knitting on my Two-Thirds shawl, though you probably can’t really tell that I’ve made any progress, given its blob-like nature.

Last night I gave Miss Lucy a special gift:

Mousie102709

This is a mousie knit by Keri. The pattern is from my “what to do with leftover sock yarn” class, and Keri whipped out two mice at blazing speed. She says her favorite part of the pattern was the direction “decrease for the butt.”

The mouse is a gift for Lucy from Keri’s boy kitty Slick, a demonstration of his undying love for her.

Isn’t that romantic?

Will the Blob take over Wendy’s life?

Will it engulf Lucy?

Will Wendy finish knitting the body of the Blob this weekend?

Or will the Blob take on . . .  a life of its own??!!
