I haven’t been posting. I have been knitting and touring. On Monday, I drove past this guy and did a quick reverse to get this shot:
I also went to a Tasmanian Devil Park and got this shot right before feeding time:
Tons (or, I reckon, as would be said here in Tasmania — Heaps) of other photos to share (182 on Monday alone!); but, it’s a hassle working on the laptop instead of the “real” computer. That’s why I haven’t been posting much. It will have to wait until I get home. Meanwhile, there have been a significant number of finished objects in addition to the Neon socks:
The Tam kit was a gift from Kimberly at Cat Mountain. She thought I would need something to keep me occupied while traveling. I had heaps of yarn left over so I did the beanie version of the same pattern. Midnight Sun Tam. A very cool knit indeed. She’s at Sock Summit now and if you are there, be sure to stop by to check out her lovely hand-dyed yarn.
The cowl was a pattern I just winged. Turned out lovely I think. I like it quite a bit, if I do say so. Love, love, love the Alchemy Haiku yarn. The color is more true in the first picture.
I’m working on a sweater now, which oddly enough, no one has posted pictures of yet on Ravelry. Does that mean I have weird taste? It’s highly textured. That was what attracted me to the pattern, A Morn in May, available from Classic Elite. I grabbed it from Patternfish. Now that I’ve got the back almost finished, I don’t like it anymore. Why? The pattern is so textured. I guess there is no pleasing some folks. I’ll carry on because I know by now, that I go through this love, hate, like thing with all my knitting. I’m hoping I can get to the “like” stage again when it’s finished. It is a fun pattern to knit and it is doing a great job of keeping me amused. So, whether I like it or not isn’t really relevant anyway.
Process baby, it’s all about the process.
