One down.

Well, Carma, what do you think? (sorry about the out of focus shot. Best I could do with a Jessie jumping on me.)

I only have the one done. By the way , I might have invented a new sport . Cabling in the round, on double points while a three year old attempts to wrestle with you. It's amazing that no one lost an eye.

Jess has apparently had enough. All this knitting felted objects, mitts and baby stuff has to stop. At least until she gets a new blanket. It must be purple. And red. And orange.

For some reason that color scheme seemed familiar. Then I remembered our trip to Hobby Lobby. (Why the public allows Carma and I to shop together is beyond me.) Remember the red/purple/orange acrylic we saw. Yup, picked some up yesterday, along with some purple because it HAS to be purple. It also must be acrylic due to the fact that Jessie blankets take a real beating and get washed until they disintergrate.

Jessie mitered square blanket. She has inspected it. She approves. All systems go.

I worked on it a bit while at the Laundromat today. ( jess had a bit of an accident on my new comforter.)
It was very amusing. Half of those in attendance where either mesmerized by my knitting, or asking questions like, "Don't they have machines to do that?" I told them yes, but where would be the fun in that.

  1. Oooooo, Carma, likey. :)

    We need to teach Jess, "You'll poke your eye out!"

    I LOVE her blanket... Just the cutest thing... I'm going to be using the same yarn to make a blanket for Weeble.... Except I only bought two skeins so I might have to get a little creative.... hmmmm
