I have four socks on the go, all ready for heels, and I don't feel like doing them. I don't feel like working on the Swallowtail shawl. I don't feel like working on any of the various sweaters that are just sitting there waiting. I am fighting the urge to cast on even more projects. More socks. An afghan. I *must* cast on. Anything.
I lost the battle.
Another fun pattern from those clever Fiber Trends people, this one is No. FT-229, Nuts about Squirrels. He's cute, eh! Lots of fun to knit too. Do I need a felted squirrel? No. Have I forgiven all those rotten little rodents for digging up my tulips last year? No. But this squirrel, I like. As long as he stays out of my garden, that is.
I figgured that since I had a new toy, Tidget needed one too, so I made this:
Do you think Tidget likes it?
I think she's gone nuts too.
In the Other News Department, I decided not to do an Amazing Lace Challenge No. 5, the Unlikely Model, because, well, I sort of think I already did it. I have no visible progress to report there, so no pics, sorry.
In the More Other News Department, it's great to see garterlac dishcloths popping up everywhere. I am pleased to report that Stacy very kindly formatted the pattern into a PDF and Sarah has very kindly agreed to host it on her site. You can get it here and I'll update the sidebar to include that link. While you're at Sarah's blog, check out the cool garterlac bathmat that she made -- and she provided the pattern for it! Thanks so much, Stacy and Sarah!
