back at the blankie

well, I finished my Christmas leftie, and I'm back at the blankie......not much progress, though....I found some nasty sinus crap this week (or maybe it was just and air quality issue), and spent the better part of 2 days doing absolutely nothing. I'm feeling better now...the fog has lifted, both literally (weather-wise), and mentally, so back to work on the blankie.....

We're supposed to be back to the rain this week, so there will probably be more progress. Now I just need to get miss kitty to leave it alone!!!!!

I still have one Christmas man-sock to finish - not much enthusiasm there......Maybe I'll work on it a bit at a blankie square one hour of sock knitting......

another leftie!

the same one from last week, with the leftover bugga leaves. It's almost done, just a little diversion from a bad kitty that caused it to fall off the needles for a short amount of time. No pics on that one, it's put away now, safely in a drawer.

hard to believe that innocent little face hiding there could be guilty of anything, huh???

Next week, finishing leftie, back to the blankie, some Christmas socks, maybe......
have to see what the weather does.

Christmas knitting....

This week, I finished my little leftie (love it), and returned to Christmas knitting. I made this pair of gloves for my sister from some leftover bugga that I had from a sweater. They are thick and warm, and I  think she'll love them. Yes, that right hand ring finger is a bit short. If you remember, she lost it to a dog bite a couple of years ago, so she really appreciates having "custom" gloves.
I also had enough leftovers from the bugga to make her a matching leftie.
Dug around in the stash (I have a LOT of stash), and found this nice complimentary color to do the background...both yarns are 10 percent cashmere, so I think it's going to turn out great.
I'll be working on leftie this week. We'll see how far I get, though. The weather is supposed to be nice, so, I'm thinking last chance to paint outside and plant my bulbs.
Next up, knitting-wise.....finishing the other man-sock.

Ok, I'll admit it, I couldn't only excuse is that it was raining and miserable and I NEEDED something, I cast on with my cute little leftie kit I bought at OFF last weekend.
It's really a fun, kind of mindless knit, with just enough interest in the leaf pattern to keep you on your toes. I made some pretty good progress (before the weather got better).

I might finish this up this week, depending on the weather, of course, and then I ABSOLUTELY have to get back to Christmas knitting. Another pair of gloves with some leftover bugga, and, I think, another of these lefties, hopefully with the leftover, leftover bugga to be the leaves.....wouldn't that be kind of a nice set? I think so.......

I'll leave y'all with a couple of miss kitty pics.......warning.....cuteness ahead.

she's totally outgrown her box......
yes, that's the same box.....
