Knitting, Dogs and Life on the High Plains

Pony-Up

A couple years ago I bought myself a ceramic horse figurine just because I really liked it. I'd pass it in a shop window everytime I went to one of my local yarn stores. One day it was missing from the window... so I went in and discovered it had simply been moved. I bought it on the spot. I am by no means a "horse person", but I just really liked it.

I later found out that it was one in a series called The Trail of Painted Ponies. My husband really got into the ponies, he knows which ones are retired, which ones are new, how much they are worth, etc. Me, I just think they are pretty.

Last night he surprised me with this one:


It is so beautiful in real life it took my breath away when I opened it.

Here's a detail of the wing:



Tuesday Morning Round-Up

First up this morning is FLAK. It's not exactly the V-neck cardigan I'd planned to make.


I started to worry that my neck opening, at 8 inches across, was going to be too big. I figured the easiest way to remedy that was to make a crew neck pullover that can have a nice wide neck ribbing like so many of Alice Starmore's designs incorporate.

Can you see the dog hairs knitted in there?

Next is Pi @ Sunrise. Still a nice, enjoyable, although slightly boring, knit. The Crazy Monkey yarn makes it a real pleasure to work on.


It is becoming painfully obvious that I will be increasing beyond the 576 stitches that I thought would be the total circumference.

Last but not least is Jaywalker:



I'd say I'm about halfway thru the cuffs. I try to do a few rows a day, it's just that I am so much more fascinated by the FLAK, and Pi @ Sunrise is really perfect knitting to watch the Olympics with.

Yes, poor Violets by the River and the Victorian Shawl were ignored AGAIN this week. I really need to admit I'm not going to make the Victorian Shawl and just rip it out.

The Numbers

865 balls, skeins or cones. 169,615 yards. So far.

The Young Prince

Yes, he knows how cute he is.




Enjoy the Process!
