My Signature Needles - #0 Double Points - have arrived. Even though I knit this little something on some long metal needles I found in my collection, I much prefer using 5 inch double points.
Here is another little something.
Love these for bookmarks!!!
I knit this sweater out of OnLine sock yarn - same as the little sock.
These take practically no time. Cast on at the hem and knit. Cast on for the sleeves as you knit across and back. Knit even and then bind off stitches for neck opening and next row, cast those stitches back on. Then, knit even. When you've knit the same number of rows down from the neck as prior to the neck, bind off your sleeve stitches. Then, knit down the rest of the body and cast off. I did do two rows of K1, P1 ribbing at both edges of the hem.
These directions are probably clear as mud but I hope you can get the picture.
Little sweaters are a great way to swatch yarns to see how you like them. The Yarn Lounge, great knitting store in Richmond, VA, does this all the time. They are really cute, too! You can vary your stitch patterns and necklines. I used to make them and stuff them with cedar chips to put in my drawers, yarn bins, or hang in my closet. Love the smell of cedar!
Skunk Report - Dead. He was in my garden and around the outside of the house again last night. The kitties were safely inside the garage. I held the flashlight while Andy did the deed. Mr. Skunk died at approximately 10:00 PM last night - right outside our bedroom. The house was filled with a very pungent aroma that air freshener only took the edge off of. A little better this morning but not much. He will be buried later today.
