While I was doing some house sitting - and kitty watching .... I brought along knitting.
I'm 1/2 way thru this pattern. It is Ilwaco Shawlette, Kelli Slack Designs pattern. c.2015. I am using Lilliput Yarn, Sasha. 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon.
I had a new row counter - was very useful for practicing a new pattern. And, I lost track of where I was in the pattern. Had to pull off the knitting and start over.
Then, I noticed the littermates - they were circling and playing, and chasing their kitty toy from one room to the next.Yep - my row counter. Row 16.
My first try in the back -- I did make it thru 2 'leaf' motifs in the pattern. I think, once done with the current shawlette, I can launch into this one. It is Leafy Lisa Shawlette by Kelli Slack Designs. yes - have the pattern and the yarn!
Below: My GF gifted me this awesome Vera Bradley tin. It has a tray inside, and GF added a magnetic strip. Eventually, will load it with needlework tools / notions.
Lastly, found this lovely book at Mitsuwa's book store. The patterns are diagrammed well and the step by step photos a bonus. maybe I'll figure it out, maybe not!
Enjoy the day.
