It’s Kitty Cat Day!

April 19, 2009

Today is Kitty Cat Day! Chris’s sister’s cat will be staying with us for next couple of weeks, and she should be here any moment now, so this will be short and sweet.

First affair, I did manage to finish those two remain pairs of socks before end of March. Go me!

On the left, is Twisted Flower by Cookie A: Dream In Color Smooshy in Wisterious, size 1.5 (2.5mm) needles. And of course, one of the twin socks with Ariel. On the right is heavily modified version of Gentleman’s Fancy Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. Again, with size 1.5 (2.5 mm) needles, in Universal Yarns Pace Step in some random bluey color. The most obvious modification being is different gauge than the pattern calls for (to accommodate the needle size), and I also carried the stitch motif down to the heel flap instead of stockinette as the pattern calls for. These socks were for Ana.

Next in agenda: a tank top. I named it “Not Picovoli”. Why? Because I intended to make Picovoli when I originally received the yarn from Ariel. Then after a bit of thinking, I decided I’m going to go for a different route. Here’s a sneak peak of the details.

Yes, I did hemmed details for the armhole and neckline. Yes, it was a lot of grafting than I can handle.

Anyway, it’s coming along, like it or not. I have more progress pictures on flickr and on Ravelry if anyone’s interested – it shouldn’t be too difficult to find me on either sites, really. More details on the project and my thoughts or whatever shall be discussed in later post(s). For now, I’m going back to anxiously waiting for our furry house guest to arrive. It’s all good.
