Leafin’ out!

With all the sewing around here, I bet you’re ready for a little knitting. Well here it is!


That pile of yarn spaghetti is a half completed Calendula shawl. I actually expected to a a little further along by now, but there have been a couple of hiccups. First, I realized I read the pattern wrong and did way too many short rows. It might have been nicer with a bigger, deeper garter section, but I probably would have run out of yarn. So I had to pretty much rip out and start all over.

Then the other morning,  I came down to this:


I believe it was a form of protest. This little Ginger Nut.


Likes to lay on my outstretched legs in the evenings. However, when I’m knitting, I’m sitting up – which means no leg cushions for Mr. Ru.  So now there’s a little less knitting each evening to make sure he gets properly snuggled.IMG_5260Even so, I’m well into the leaf lace and loving it. There are beads in there, though you can’t see them – they are almost the same colour as the yarn. I’ll get better pics eventually, but in reality, they won’t do much more than add a touch of sparkle to it.

    Love the colour – of the shawl and of wee Rupert. My cat, Megs the tabby, only gets into things when I’m home and awake – “All the better to annoy you, m’dear”.
    Happy Knitting, Michelle in Wellington, NZ.

    (One advantage of getting patterns as pdfs is that we can easily print out a new copy when our little paper shredders go into action! Hurray for modern times!)
