ok, so i lied

the ebony laceweight zephyr was ordered with all good intentions of knitting the ms3.

but when anne told me she was writing up the pattern for a rectangular bee shawl, i pleaded for a test-knitting spot.



here's the bee resting on the back of my fabulous new knitting chair. the ottoman's tone is slightly different than the chair, but not as drastic as the photo. 75% off, who could resist?




waiting for the rectangular bee to be written up, i got out wooly wonka anne's ceilidh sock kit. anne has captured the colors of a nantucket sunset in her nantucket colorway.

no photo yet of the finished socks as i've been feverishly working on the new bee.

lily of the valley smoke ring is done also, just needs a good steaming.



doggie kitty snooze fest.

Man you're fast.

Can't wait to see how the new bee turns out. A comfy chair is a true luxury, made doubly so by being 75% off.

That snoozefest is delicious! Wish I could get my dogs to be so calm around a feline. The knitting, well, it's always amazing...and a 75% piece of furniture is great in any color. :)

*sigh* Stunningly productive, as usual. I guess I"ll just crawl under my spinningknitting rock again.

I had my eye on those socks but last time I looked they were sold out. Guess I need to go back and look again!

I love the cat and dog together. You really lucked out with that fab kitty.

The smoke ring is a beauty. I wonder if it's possible for you to knit any faster now that you have that comfy looking chair.

Love canine/feline photo. Raja really settled in to being one of the family.

You *of course* gave Raja some good noogies from me the instant you were finished taking the photo, I hope!

The bee shawl is, indeed, gorgeous.

Yet ANOTHER Willy Wonka pattern that I like! Lovely! I need to get busy on my kit I already have...is it Shingle Creek? Or something like that?
