Kitty Knitting

funny pictures - Hmm...maybe I should've knit one instead of purled two.

Just add a couple hundred Christmas lights, and you’ll have the Griswalds’ Christmas vacation! Hah.

So, on the needles. Or to be more precise, on the hook. I’m almost done with the crocheted project “Zaubertote” from the book “Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders.” Only problem is, one skein of the Zauberball wasn’t enough despite the book title, and it costs $19.99 per ball, so now instead of a basic $20 tote, I’ll have a $40 tote! I’d better get lots of use out of it. Winking smile

At least I’m having fun crocheting for a break from knitting. And the yarn color changes are awesome, shades of purple, pink and orange.

Once the tote is done, I’ll return to the shawl I’m knitting, the Water Turtles Shawl from the book “Wrapped in Comfort.” It’s going slowly as each row is so long, and it’s hard to see the pattern yet as it’s only 6 or 8 inches long. It’ll be a challenge to block, I suspect.

What’s on your needles…or hook?

Knitting a pair of socks for myself, with yarn I received in exchange for a pet reading.

Continuing to work on mittens for the "family".

Odds and ends of knitting at other projects here and there.

Knitting has been slow lately. Too much to do!

Glad to hear you're still knitting, even if slowly. That shawl I'm working on? Each row takes an hour. Oy. But I'm pushing along, little by little.
