As Promised....

Finally some FO's . I finished the "Not Cashmere Neckwarmer", I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and the modifications that I made. I cast on 19 stitches to make it a little wider and used some yummy BFL llama blend yarn from Pond View Farms that I got at the Sheep and Wool Fest. Yes, that is dog hair on my top, it's everywhere.

I finally cast on for the Fibertrends felted cap last night. I couldn't really make sense of the order of the initial cast on which is supposed to be a long tail cast on so I changed it to a loose cable cast on and did it my own way. I hope this doesn't turn around and bite me on the ass when I go to felt it. Oh well at any rate....it's knitting.

I also started a pair of cable eyelet socks using some Bearfoot from Mountain colors. It's fingering weight but it seems heavier so I am using a size 2 addi and 60 stitches. So far so good. I had to have something portable for Wednesday and Thursday, this is when I am taking Mom Larj in for her cataract surgery. I think she's a little nervous but then that's normal.

A lot on my plate this weekend and really not on account of the holidays. Both Mr. Larj and I don't really have what you'd call "family" so it's not like this time of the year is any more hectic than a normal day. I think it's just hectic because of us both being sick and now it's time to play catch up. I have a lot of errands and Etsy stuff to catch up on tomorrow along with the dreaded "cooking". Bleah! Everyone have a great week!

Love the neck warmer. I think it turned out great! I can't wait to see what this hat turns into. Looks like it will be cozy though.

I hope playing catch up means that you and Mr Larj are feeling much much better.

Ok, talk about coincidence: I've just finished a couple of those neckwarmers AND I'm taking my mum in for cataract surgery this Thurs!
[I'm sure your mum will be surprised at how simple the procedure really is.]
