Instead of quilting down the stairs, I've been knitting up the stairs. I've finished 3 pairs of socks. The yummy green yarn was dyed by the very talented Deb Levy. She's a very generous friend.

 I'm also working on a sweater for a friend who shall remain nameless. It's coming along very nicely now but not so much in the begininng. Of course, once I figured out that the designer really did know what she was doing and me, not so much, everything started to move along fabulously. It's not fun to unknit row after row of more than 200 stitches because you couldn't follow directions in the first place. The upside of all that unpicking is that I got to know the pattern repeats very well. It's knit from the bottom up in one piece. It's a KnitPick's pattern....http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Harumi_Cardigan__D10614220.html




In case you were missing my kitties...
