Little by little

The sock is growing little by little. This is my third pair of toe up socks and I think I’m ready to branch into something other than stockinette. I think. 🙂

I was asked recently about teaching a crochet class at the LYS I work at. We’re looking at starting out with the basics and then branching into African flower square animals, which would then cover chart reading, joining, etc. Sounds like my vacation may include a crochet project! 🙂

My stomach has been a mess since yesterday. Last night was not good and today I’m fine if I don’t eat. Sigh. When I get home tonight, I’m going to make some Paleo crackers to munch. :-/

Sigh

You know when you keep making stupid mistakes on the same (very simple) pattern, it’s time to take a break. Twice now, I have had to tink back the collar of the Sherlock Bones coat for making practically the same freaking mistake. I have roughly until the first to finish it, so I’m trying to rush, which is clearly a mistake. So tonight I’m working on my green socks and tomorrow (or the next day), I will go back to it. But for tonight? Not the night to work on it.

Sigh.

TA DAH

Yesterday I said I’d post a picture of the pieces of the dog sweater I’m working on. It doesn’t look like much and I think the color may be a bit darker in the photos than it really is. But these are the pics as the pieces are now. I’m hoping to get things together within the next day or so. 🙂

As cute as it will be, I am also very ready for it to be finished and to move on to other things.

Poof!

I kind of vsnished, didn’t I?

I am getting knitting done, though! A co-worker has asked if I’d   knit her grand doggie an adorable little sweater, so I’ve been busy with that.

It’s a Debbie Bliss pattern called Sherlock Bones and the yarn the Co worker selected is a lovely Heather from Knit Picks. (To be clear, I am not selling this. She purchased the yarn and I’m putting it together as she is not an experienced knitter. I’m making no money/ profit). She is picking up the buttons over the weekend.

Of course, I have no photos just now. Doesn’t this figure? I’ll edit them in tonight. 🙂
