and a great cry was heard from the readers of Purlingswine:
"Why Ann why, did you not get the lovely and luscious D#2 to model for you this morning?! After all, this Panta was knitted for her ……don’t you love us anymore??"
Darlings – we had a recalcitrant D#2 this morning. Despite the frigid morning temps, D#2 had gone to the trouble of curling her hair and refused to put on the Panta. ~Panta Panta, dontcha wanna Panta Panta~ Remember the days of waking up hours before the school bell to attend to the coif? Obviously those days are a very distant memory for me!!
I had a very productive weekend. I made the above Panta and have started another. This is a great pattern – uses up oddments of yarn. And despite D#2’s stand this morning, is a good item if you have in your life people who don’t like to wear hats no matter what the weather.
In the further adventures of my crafty weekend ….
a mostly completed Pocket Creature and Halcyon along with a close up.
And then under the category of things I forgot to take a picture of this morning ….. one of the Rail Road Rib socks and the beginnings of its mate and stitch markers that I made for the ladies in my knitting class. I also took a trip to Granny’s on Saturday. Kathleen helped me to pick out a fantastic yarn for Irish Moss. She should negotiate for being paid on commission – naturally it is not what I went there to get and cost more. Just like L’Oreal and Kathleen says – I’m Worth It. Although Irish Moss is going to be for Boar. And it will fit Boar. So really, Boar’s worth it.
As I am typing this all out it is beginning to sound like a frenetic weekend full of mad knitting. I wonder if I caught what Kay’s got? read the December 8th entry.
Nah, I’ve got it too. I’m a finishing fool and I pray that I’m not quite there yet, I still gotta pop out some kids!!
Can’t wait to see the finished pocket creature – so cute!
If being off the rag is more productive than being on the rag – sign me up! I can’t have kids anyway without help, so wtf.
By the way, I don’t wear hats. Unless they’re off the baseball variet with sheep or witches on them. But as a rule, for the cold, I don’t wear hats. I’m just saying. Size small. (Yeah. That’s right. I’ve got a tiny head.)
Geez. Spell much?
You are totally worth it! If only I had my camera to take pics of my glorious dome.
But her curls could have pooled over the top of Panta! Maybe you should enjoy it as it looks warm.
I don’t wear hats much, either, but I want one of those. I doubt my girls would; that said, they’ll all three want one for sure… for Christmas! I like how it looks on you, and I think Cara would be cute in one, too.
Hey, that middle/main cable on Halcyon is the exact same middle/main cable I’m doing on Shirley Shrugs! Saw the design on a pillow in a catalog, then found the pattern a book.
Could ya’ll please cough in my direction? I need to catch that “productive” bug that everyone seems to have these days. Of course, if it is what Kay seems to think it is, I am out of luck at 28.
Love that little pocket creature. So cute!
Conversation at the Blues this morning:
D#3: Well I’ve been up since twenty past five!
D#3: To take a shower and “do” my hair.
Me: (dreamy flashback sequence of me doing the same thing some 25+ years ago).
Yeah, how we’ve grown. Or given up, you decide.
I feel like an underachiever now. A hoarder and an underachiever.
You’re FAR too young doll. Must be Christmas. Perhaps the Boar has you excited about knitting that Irish Moss. Or just generally excited.
And just because I love to type this, please give my regards to the Boar.
oh, halcyon turned out beautifully! well done!
Very nice , thanks a sharing..
