Today I wound yarn. Can you tell which skein gave me trouble?
This lovely Beaverslide will be ANOTHER wallaby, this time for my daughter. Every time I think I have enough needles, I find I need another size. In case of fire, I have told my husband grab my laptop, the picture box and my knitting needles. This is not a cheap hobby. I have more in needles than I have in jewelry. It is 8:10 and all of the purveyors of Addi Turbos in a 6/24 are closed. Of course I have my knit picks interchangeables, but have I sprung for the 24 inch cable? Of course not. By the time I pay shipping, I may as well get the Addi's. Hmmm. So instead of casting on another Wallaby ( I am addicted) I will cast on a hat for hubby that I actually have needles for.
Today I picked fresh green beans and jalapenos from the garden. The purple beans turn a gray-green when cooked and they have a mild flavor.Baby Owlie is blocking. The hat pattern is here. Someday with a real grandbaby in it, I will post better pictures. My son and his wife are photographers and they will do this justice with their own beautiful child gracing it. This is such a fun pattern and a quick knit. Grandbaby 2 is due in October and I thought this color would be cute for fall.
