feline friday

Feb 29th, 2008 knitting, pets

I’ve been rummaging through the archives adding older knitting projects to my Ravelry notebook. I’m glad I had this blog to help me keep records in those pre-Rav days, but I also have plenty of projects that predate even the blog, most of which I don’t have pictures of. And somehow I don’t think pictures of well-worn, used socks would look that great online. Anyway,…

I was inspired by both the sock yarns she sent, but this one in particular was pleasing because it’s just my colors… those earthy brown and greens are my “thing” these days, plus I’m a known lover of orange.   So the real question is: how could…

I’m definitely ready for summer weather, and thanks to a Ravelry swap, my yarn stash is getting ready, too. I have 6 skeins of King Tut Cotton, which I’m thinking will become the Drop Stitch Lace Tank from Fitted Knits (Ravelry link). My…
