Missing in Action




















I'm sorry I haven't responded to a lot of messages I've gotten lately. I've been off in Lauren-Land and that can be a spooky place sometimes. Mr. Matt can attest to this. It's basically Halloween there all year long. I've been in and out and a bit hard to reach.

In the world of knitting I've completed 2 small projects. I finally managed to complete the task of making a set of armwarmers that I actually like. I also finished an Amelia Aviator hat to go with it. Rounding out this trio is my Good Ole Cable scarf that I finished ages ago. It has been more than a year since I won a gift certificate to the Shabby Sheep for $25 dollars and I ended up with 5 skeins of some lovely Suri Merino. I wanted to make a hat/scarf/armwarmer set and it has taken me this long to complete that goal. Oddly enough I still have 1.5 skeins left over so I may make an alternate hat to go with the set.

I've also made some serious progress with my Icarus shawl. I'm almost done with the main body repeats and yet I'm still only on the first skein of Knitpicks Shadow. For less than $3 dollars a skein this is working out to be quite an inexpensive shawl. Sweet.

    Ooh, pretty. Wow - you've done so much better than I with the shawl. [sigh] It's turning out awesome! And I like the arm warmers, too.

    The hat, however nice it might be in person with perspective, kind of makes you look Amish or Mennonite. (Tee hee - you know I tease because I love.)

    Thanks! Well if I look Amish or Mennonite then I'll fit right in with my Dad.

    I personally love the hat! I've thought about making that pattern more than once myself - I need something to keep my ears warm up here in Canada!

    I love the armwarmers, such a cheery colour. The shawl is coming along beautifully.
