I spent the weekend at my sister's house. She's my knitterly comrade-in-arms. She (like me) brings her knitting every where she goes too. We went out to dinner at a Korean Restaurant called, Shira Kiku in Nashua. It was delicious! While waiting, she wound a skein of yarn.
My brother-in-law is a wine connoisseur and takes very good care of me. I got my own personal wine tasting. I'm no slacker, I rose to the occasion.
I cast on for the Not Just Plain Jane Mystery Knit-a-long. (Not while testing the wine!) I'm knitting with Be Sweet Cotton Candy (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 130 yards).
They have a cat. He was respectfully interested in my knitting bag.
We had a cat growing up and it was a trip down memory lane
to spend time around a cat.
I started swatching for the Noro Cropped Jacket from Noro Knitting Magazine, Fall 2012. The yarn is Noro Silk Garden Sock (Sport: 40% Wool, 25% Nylon, 25% Silk, 10% Mohair, 328 yards).
The pattern calls for a #4 needle. I automatically started with a #3, then #2, then #1. In the final analysis the #2 was the closest to the gauge. I'm looking forward to knitting this, it's "outside the box". This will be a sample and a class at Westport Yarns.
In fairness, I must add puppy pictures.
