Knitting, Crochet, and Kitty Cuteness


My latest knitted undertaking.

The top from the cover in a cotton I acquired during Carissa's destashing. I didn't do a test swatch (don't tell me you're shocked!), on needles 5mm smaller then recommended and I am pretty sure the weight of cotton I'm using is quite different from the one suggested. I'm hoping the finished product won't turn out to be as baggy as the one in the picture. Precisely the reason I'm following (gasp) the pattern for the smallest size. That's kind of funny since there is nothing small about me!


Briggs & Little Wool Blanket
Progress is slow, but I'm getting there. Somewhere between a third and half way done, I'd say.


Annie in a bonnet
Doesn't she look impressed?

Barbara,

I am in love with the colour of that cotton sweater! It's gorgeous. I also like the design you are using for the wool blanket.

Annie looks cute but I wonder what she's thinking :o)

*Love* the wool blanket. Is it your own pattern or where did you find it? And what yarn are you using? It looks wonderful. (Love the kitties also. Annie doesn't look very happy . . . . )

The works are great, but that cat picture just killed me.
