FO Pictures

Greetings. As promised, here are the pictures of my finished stuff. The bag has been felted. I plan to run it thru one more time, once I figure out how to attach the handles better.

The next two pictures are the scarf/stole thingy I was working on last week. I gave it to our pastor’s wife.

Then you see my stylin Sterling.

I frogged the shell lace bookmark and started one that was much easier to understand what it was wanting me to do. The shell lace one will come later, but right now I do not have the desire to figure it out.

WIP Update

Good afternoon. The scarf/stole thingy is finished. Even the fringe is done. I plan to start a dog sweater in the round for Sterling. Hopefully I can cast on for it tonight. If I do not work on that, I will probably work on the raglan sleeve chunky sweater that I am almost finished with. I want to wear it this weekend, so I need to get with the program. That puts me back at only 10 WIP.

WIP: Fuzzy mindless scarf – very boring, hard to make myself work on.
Sweater from bulky yarn – halfway thru the yoke
Lace table cloth – may frog and start again with better yarn.
Socks – finished
Purse for felting – finished
Wool shawl – it is now cool enough to drag this bulky thing out and work on it.
Baby blanket (has been WIP for 5+ years)
Baby sweater (only needs seaming and buttons)
Striped sweater – do not like the way it is coming out.
Double knitting experiment – do not know where the chart is.
Scarf/stole thingy – finished
Shell lace bookmark – just started.
As of Nov 17, 2005

It is 56 degrees here today, was 35 this morning. At least today, there is hardly any wind. That makes it better.

It looks like Thanksgiving will be just DH and myself. We just bought a big screen TV (52” screen) so watching football will probably be the order of the day. I will figure out the menu this weekend when I go to the store.

Psalm 34:1-8 I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are discouraged take heart. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together. I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me, freeing me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. I cried out to the Lord in my suffering, and he heard me. He set me free from all my fears. For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him, and he rescues them. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!

HowdyHowdy. I finally have a minute to type a line or two. Work and life have gotten in the way of knitting today. Over the weekend, Chevy (our Maine Coon mix cat that weighs 16 lbs) starting acting strange and going potty in odd places. We knew that he had a problem before with this stuff, so I got the rare joy of taking him to the vet today. He will be fine, but has a UTI. Too many $$$ later, he is fixed up and may have to be on a special diet forever. I am very thankful that he is going to be fine. My counterpart is not here today, so that meant the team lead had to answer calls while I took Chevy to the vet. Ah well, it is good for him to have to do that once in a while, helps him know what we really do.

I think I have 10 projects OTN and one in the midst of felting (it is not coming out the way I thought it would) that I should finish as much as I can sometime this week (if I ever can quit having to wash things from Chevy’s problem). My UFO list is as short as it has been since I got back into this a couple of years ago.

Proverbs 16:3 - Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

Quick Note

knitting and other odd thoughtsJust a quick note. I have been knitting away on the bag to be felted. I only have a few rounds left on it before I can cast off. Since I am going to the Denton knit nite tonight, I will not be able to try felting till at least tomorrow. I will definitely take pictures of the before and after of this. I bought another skein of yarn for the scarf thing and will try to get it back on the needles today. I finally decided to do the shell lace bookmark, but want to finish the bag before I begin.
