Lazy January


I haven't felt much like posting lately, but I have been knitting. I am up to row 105 on the International shawl and a bit more than halfway finished with the doily afghan. Afghan doily? Doifghan? Afly?


Harry has been mostly sleeping off a bad hangover for the past week, so I have nothing to report on his eggs.

Our gunsmith has been too ill to do anything with the needles I gave him several months ago. We decided to give knitting needle surgery a whirl, so we ordered a variety of tiny drills and a miniature drill press outfit. So far, we have read the manual, admired the teensy drill bits, and set up the drill press. We haven't quite gotten up the courage to turn the sucker on yet, but I figure in a week or so we'll be drilling and filling like pros. Or I will have a truly remarkable set of mutilated needles. I'll keep you posted.

That's a lot of knitting considering that those rows are getting longer and longer.

Good luck with the needles! Keep us posted.

Beauties! I knit the one on the second picture. I love it. Mine is DMC cotton. What are you using for it?

Dave said...

Oh, a flower thingy. And a doikey (doily blankey). And a week-long hangover. You have *all* the fun stuff at your house.

Know what you mean about not posting but knitting.... you look like you've been industrious I love the "doifghan" and the International Shawl looks intriguing....

You made my day by posting....

BTW Just because I'm practising my crocheting doesn't mean you have to wait until next year, although I suspect you're already proficient at it!!!
