Indeed I did knit. Quite a few rows on Clapotis. However, the more rows you knit, the more stitches you have, the longer it takes to have such instant gratification! Ah well, I think the result will be well worth it. I'm knitting it in a superfine alpaca, so I've doubled the yarn to get gauge (or some semblence thereof). The color is a teaberry shade, and I think it will be just perfect for fall.
In need of more immediate gratification, I decided to finish one of the many crochet facecloths (and/or other projects) I have to make for self, friends, and family. This one, of course, is for self. (Cheesy grin!) The cotton yarn feels wonderful on the face - it has just enough roughness to exfoliate. Amazing what a difference a clean face makes! My hubby even asks for the "kick-arse facecloths" now. Makes me chuckle....
Here are a few I've made - the pink with yellow trim I just finished tonight. Believe it or not, the purple/green is actually wet! I put them together just for comparison.
And while I'm hooking my wares (hehee - I crack myself up, I'm so punny!)....here's a little bag I made with a glossy green cord. It makes a very handy place for putting little doodads.
And now I'm off. The boys ate some new bones tonight and they seem to be disagreeing with Levi. After one call to the vet, we're on 'vomit watch'. This is a good thing, we're told. In fact, part of the conversation went like this:
the me: he's whimpering and retching
the vet: ok....watch him for the next 45 minutes or so...
the me: oh dear, he seems to be vomiting right here on the kitchen floor.
the vet: GOOD! let him vomit anywhere he wants, even on your shoes or your clean laundry or your library books!
Ok, I embellished a bit. Honestly though - we're still in the kitchen. Watching Levi. Allowing him to vomit, if he so chooses, on the kitchen floor. Doctor's orders.
