One Down

I squeezed in another day at The Tail Spinner, and boy am I glad. Of course I did a few more rows of mom's top. And I found a new excuse to not knit it. At the moment my fingers are dry and peeling. Well, the little bits of dry skin would snag the ever so sensitive yarn, how can I justify snagging the yarn?? lol Alright, so I just want to knit socks...sue me.

Speaking of, one giant slipper sock done! It is waiting for felting now, I started the cuff for it, and later I will cast on for the other sock. For now though, I am going to swatch for my mom's socks. Which she will most definitely get before that silly top*. Anyways, I picked out a cable and lace combination that will look lovely together. They seem to mesh well numberwise as well. It should end up being similar to the Baudelaire sock in construction, toe-up, cables and lace on the leg, etc. Although, I'm debating actually leaving the foot completely plain. Not sure. Mom might prefer to have nothing on the foot so that she can wear the sock with just about anything? What do you think?

Oh, and I love my LYS. It's awesome. Linda is awesome. She's one of those "You can do anything if you just put your mind to it!" people. And I love that. If you think you can't do something she will assure you that you can, even if she has to show you like 100 times, you will not walk out of that store without learning something.

*Note of interest: I always call it "mom's top" because I can never remember how to spell the actual name of the pattern...is it Baccarat or Bacarrat? Or maybe Baccarrat?? Who knows....

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
