This & That

Knitting continues. A bit of this, a bit of that...


I finished another chemo cap for a friend of a friend. Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran yarn - soft, soft, soft. Yes, it's quite plain. My friend is in Guatemala this week on a mission trip - I should have found out if her friend would like something fancier before she left! My reasoning for leaving it so plain - are cables and fancy stitches perhaps a bit rough on a newly naked scalp?









I started the Christmas gift for my co-worker. Party is Monday evening - gotta get moving now!










Paul's Cobblestone pullover slowly moves on. It's kind of last in the queue. But I've been carrying it work, and getting a few rows done during lunch. I'm loving the garter stitch sides - great textural interest.




Last, but really my favorite...
The Rambling Rows afghan has become my obsession. I need to do one square a day before I pick up any other knitting. I'm really lovin' knitting all this with my own handspun.

I did some calculations - I don't think I'll have enough to do the complete afghan with the yarn I have. So I'm taking out a few squares. I now have 35 of 46 squares done. It's currently 46" x 37". It's heavy, drapy, and warm.

What a glorious blanket! I'm so envious of the hand spun! As for the chemo hat, everyone needs a basic black hat. It looks wonderfully soft and gentle.

I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
