Clever Me, Not so Clever Cat

Oh wow. I'm back. Apologies for the absence. I've been busy knitting. But now I'm back. With Projects to share.

I gave you a wee sneak preview when I was telling you of various things I was thankful for- and here it is in the full.

A Noro entrelac scarf.
The pattern?
A free one (who doesn't love free?).
And a good one (who doesn't love free and good?).

The pattern is Danica from Knitty.
The yarn is four balls of Noro Kureyon.
The finished result is loooove.

I whipped this baby off in no time because once I got started, I just couldn't stop. It was heavenly-addictive!
And I have a customer to thank for that.
A lovely customer (you know who you are), asked me if I would ever consider teaching a class in entrelac. I agreed enthusiastically before even realizing myself that I had never even tried it. (I have a tendency to get ahead of myself).
Am I ever glad I did though!
What fun!
What a lovely effect!
ESPECIALLY in self-striping yarn.

Doesn't this scarf make me look like such a clever knitter?
I want you to think I spent hours and hours knitting strips and weaving them all together.

OK- that's enough out of me.

Time to go to work.

But I leave you with this little bad man.

Do you know what that is?
Of course you do.

But do you know what it is SUPPOSED to be?

A sweater for my cousin's new baby.

Good thing he's so cute! I'm guessing you won't be able to have him visit the store :o)

P.S. The scarf is soooo cool.

Sister, all I can tell you is to pray that Haaavey never gets as big as Otis and can open dresser drawers to get at your yarn.

That is what I contend with. No place is safe from him, he hunts yarn and then... well you know how sharp his teeth are.

Ohh scarf -- Harvey is so cute! You need to show off your knitting and have Harvey play with it. Hmm maybe a bad idea! LOL
