Weird Week

It was kind of a weird week here at Knitatation! We've been suffering with
colds and just laying low.

I am done with the Jared Flood Wayfarer scarf!

Yarn: Mas Acero from Brooks Farm Yarns, Lancaster Texas
purchased at Rhinebeck.
Size 8 needles
400 Yards

I was very intrigued by the stitch pattern. This was fun.
There were a lot of mindless inches, as well as a couple of
complicated charts to follow for a few inches.

Finished length: 48" long.

I will make this scarf again !

As part of my 2011 goals, I am going to take the time to do some
learning again. I learn much better in a classroom, but will do my best
to learn a few things on my own.

I was intrigued by the Swirled Striped Pattern for sale on Ravelry,
so I bought it. The pattern is not that easy, and took a couple of starts but
I am on my way - finally. Probably have 3" done.

I could not figure out the cast on so just figured out what the result was
supposed to look like and made my own. Basically just cast on every other
stitch in different color.

I am using Cascade 220 Superwash Black and Red. Since every stitch
is a different color, it takes a while.

I am also working on a pair of brainless socks, that were not done
enough to be photo worthy at this point.

Tiffany finished up the scarf she was making for her boss Vicky.
She used more of the Encore Super Bulky black yarn. She pick

She picked a K2 / P2 pattern, but since she had stitch
count NOT divisible by 4, it is not ribbing.

It is quite lovely.

Ruth finished blocking her Jarrod Flood kerchief pattern little
shawl. It is sooo cute!

She has been busy making Monkey socks for her sister.
Premier Yarns, the Deborah Norville
Collection. Wool, bamboo and nylon.

I like them, don't you?

In non-knitting news

Tiffany turns 24 today! Happy Birthday!

We had the family over for dinner yesterday - so nice to have
them all here.

Mickey just loves to torment poor Abbey.
Now, Mickey has decided that they will BOTH
sleep in Abbey's bed. Abbey is not very thrilled.

I think I'm ready for Spring to be here so I have more exciting
things to talk about than my animals sleeping together!!!!!

Have a fun week!
