My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.



It was still grey, still rainy today. And happily, still not icy. I think we dodged a bullet on that one!


Meanwhile back at the ranch . . .







Online buddies?






Comfy seat?



Little helper?





Check and double-check!

    Sylvies last blog post..My knitting and life goals for 2009

  16. Wow! You take multi-tasking to a whole new level. I’m lucky if I can knit and watch a show at the same time without dropping half my stitches. Forget Plurking, eating, drinking and shmoozing a cat all at the same time.

  17. Mmmm, Fresca! Tart, sweet, perfect!

    Looks like you had a great day, and so did Lucy.

    Thanks again for the tutorial on tables in Word. I just had a chance to try it out, and it was perfect! Still have to get fonts, though…

  25. Wendy, have you checked out Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along-blog? You can see it on Hulu, and if you like Joss Whedon’s suff you will probably love it. I did!

    LoriOs last blog post..I want a Snuggie

    Seanna Leas last blog post..[10 on Tues] 2009 dreams

  30. I myself spent the better part of yesterday afternoon/evening/and into the night with the second half of season 6 of BTVS. I was determining yardage of some obtained lace weight yarn that the label has been mislaid for. Been watching Buffy for …. well since it orginally was on TV. What a great show. You do know there is a ravelry group for Buffy… right?? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheryls last blog post..So, I made it to the New Year…

  31. Stealth projects continue to intrigue me. I have a stealth project too, just so you know. And, it has a little something to do with you.

    But, we’ll just have to wait and see what that’s all about, now won’t we?

    We are having quite the snow storm here today. I sitting in my sitting area where the fireplace is, looking out toward the back of the farm where the barn and the fields are with the woods way out beyond. Blowing snow and falling snow, so much pretty white stuff. Wish I could share some of this with you to spare you the grey.

    Happy New Year to you and Lucy!

    Warm wishes,

    fireflys last blog post..A sense of wonder

  33. Now that looks like a fantastic way to spend a stormy afternoon. Looks like Lucy’s got the best spot in the house! ^_^
