A Knitting Blog Needs Knitting

I know, I know. That isn't knitting. That is Ruthie. She is such a sweet cat that I had to share that photo with you this morning. She often sits on the top of my chair as I knit. So, you see, it is related to knitting.

So, I have actually been knitting. I have been particularly focused on the Blueberry, which has now become a design of my own based on the ideas of a top-down design. I plan to also design my own edging for the neck, sleeves and bottom. As you can see I have a lot of time to decide that.

Last night, I was getting a little "bored" with the knit knit knit in the round that is required for the Blueberry, so I started the Peapod from Interweave. I'm using Shine Worsted from Knit Picks which is really nice but the first several rows of any pattern seem to be really fussy and I was getting tired by the time I started last night at 11:00 pm. I think I unknitted 4 times before I decided to go to sleep. I get really focused at times that I really ahve to tear myself away from the knitting in order to go to sleep. I have to start making LOTS of mistakes before I finally throw in the towel for the evening.

Speaking of throwing in the towel, we are going to the Sky game again tonight. I am bringing knitting. But probably the Blueberry since it is just straight knitting and I can do that and watch the game simultaneously.


  1. I had a great time yesterday! I hope that you're enjoying your purchases...Hey, I thought that you might want to check out this new link...:)

    Talk to you later!

  2. How was the Sky game? We get to see them play on Thrusday.

    My Astros won Sunday, so did that help the Cubs enough?

    Can't wait to see more details of both items!

    And Ruthie is so sweet looking. Eraser would never sit that still while I'm knitting. She tries to take the yarn and then attaches the needles....stressful....

  3. Mandy! Welcome to blogland. Hooray!

    Lisa, The Sky game...I'll post about that tomorrow morning. It was fun, but we lost.

    Yay Astros! Thanks for trying to help the Cubbies...
