Polkadot Progress

While searching the expanse of the www the other day I came across the Polkadot sweat at Berroco. Now I do think that the orange that they knit this in is not my color of choice, I did think it was perfect for my niece. So a trip to the LYS was in order I choose from Universal Yarn Inc. their Classic Worsted LP in Indigo Blues.

It took a while to get going on this sweater, not because it is a difficult pattern but once again my reading skills have been called into question. However, in my defense I have been and not working with my full polkadot2.jpgbrain capacity. I had to CO 429sts … L not fun! But we are on track now and I see nothing but smooth sailing knitting.

I have also joined the Grey’s Anatomy Season 4 KAL, because I LOVE Grey’s … enough said – I think.
And as many of you are I am still waiting for my Ravelry invite, this is where I am in line. I was reading the ravelry blog and it looks like invites are going to start coming faster now … so hopefully the wait won’t be too much longer.

Guitar Strap

DD had been begging for 2 years for a guitar, so this past Christmas she got her guitar.  In my email last week I got the Lion Brand news letter, in there was a pattern for a felted guitar strap. I bought 2 skeins of lion wool in Autumn Sunset. Here is a “before felting” look.



And here is the “after felting” look:
