Little bit of Knitting, Little bit of Life

Since my last post, I've made another scarf for that super bowl project, taught another class or two, traveled to Mississippi and made it to New Orleans for a long weekend.

I did a bit of experimenting with yarn while traveling in the truck and decided jaggerspun was not going to give the effect I was looking for on the needles I had with me.

This swatch went to the frog pond. And I pulled out a cone of cotton yarn from the same company. My first lace scarf turned out nicely, even if some of the cat tracks are from a polydactyl cat.

I got a bit adventurous and made a toy gargoyle. The pattern called for making it in the round. I was not up to playing with nine (9) stitches on double point needles, so I made it flat and sewed up the seams. Instead of a traditional grey, my guardian of the computer is a bit pink and perky.
The photo is a tad blurry because Nugget moved. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
