Going back to things

Like my cotton tumbleweed. I got to the end of the back and decided I didn't want to deal with shoulder seams so I winged a neck opening. It may be too large, but I can work a band around it with a cable then do a little rib edge. Knitpicks Dishie is really nice, good hand in cables.
Also, I have had the horrible summer cold this week. There's something so pathetic about sneezing and coughing when it's 104 out.

Another tiny sweater

Also, pictures of my flowers a juvenile doe keeps eating on me. See the bald stalks??

It's been a while

Sorry - things have been busy and to be frank, the knitting I've been doing isn't all that interesting.
I finished the beaded Cecily jacket - it was lovely, but too big on me. So I sent it to my mom. I also designed a tiny little Aran sweater for Mel's baby, Amelia. I hope she likes it. And I'm finishing up 2 more Korrigans in Knitpicks Comfy fingering. I have all these other things I want to get to - an entralac vest in leftover Chroma, using up some fingering silk I got for Christmas back in the mid 80s, use my new Green Mountain Spinnery yarn, make a Vitamin D in some fingering weight Stroll I dyed, finish up the 9 things on needles. Oh well. I'll get some done today in the car on the way to Columbus for a 5k. Here are some recent pics:

Baby aran done

I love this little thing - it's so soft and intricate and cute.  I hope Mel does too.
I'm nearly done with Goddess Nutt, too.  I'm just doing the edging, I'll take a snap outside and see if I can't do it justice.
