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.

Slow and Steady May Win the Race

But it makes for lousy blog-fodder, I must say.

Like the tortoise alluded to in the title, I am plodding along on my chevron stole.  It is more than half done, but I don’t think the whole thing will be complete until a week from now. It looks like it did yesterday, only a little longer.

So that’s it.

Move along, nothing to see here.

Apart from Miss Lucy, that is.

  1. Gives drive-by kitteh kisses ~ mwaaaaaaaa! ♥♥♥

  2. Awh Lucy, so sweet.

  3. Always a joy to read your blog whether there’s fodder, or not.

  4. Bethany says:

    Miss Lucy is always worth seeing.

  5. Sometimes projects just work that way.

  6. Kathie Brownlee says:

    See the little eye peek? she knows you are taking her picture…and expressing her displeasure over sleep interrupted.

  7. Barb Harger says:

    Nice photo of Lucy!! She is so cute!

  8. I finally got to see a WendyKnits stealth project — got my TLE Sock Club project for March today — and totally love the sock pattern and the yarn (see my blog for a photo). The scarf pattern is cute, too, but I can’t resist a Wendy sock!!

  9. And Miss Lucy is ALWAYS worth seeing!

  10. You could post no pictures of knitting at all and we’d still show up for the Lucy pics. =)

  11. Slick is always ready to see pics of Miss Lucy. As a matter of fact, he says you can just quit knitting. In his opinion, this blog should be all Lucy, all the time!
    .-= Kyrana´s last blog ..Back to Minnesota? Ya, sure. =-.

  12. What an absolute cutie for sure. And she looks so comfy on her very own sheep skin rug!!

  13. I’ve been there with the long lace. I hope you are having a wonderful week.

    Hi Wendy – sorry to here about your back troubles. I wanted to share with you a little tidbit from history that is not well known. Clyde Tambough, who is the person who is credited with discovery the (then) planet Pluto, had a degerating spine problem also. Even though this a very painful and miserable thing to happen, someone who is famous had it also. Good luck – Hester from Atlanta

  15. Lucy has the right idea. I’ve wanted to just plop myself down and laze for days!

  16. Knitting or no – it is always a pleasure to see Miss Lucy. Keep plodding along sweetie!

    I am a fan of your first book (and the patterns – love the classic but still interesting to knit patterns). I have checked the second book on Amazon and hope that it will provide tips in adapting the toe-up to anything. I need to “claim my knitting” and be able to customize if needed…

  18. I love Lucy……..
