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.Even 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.
