... creeps the garden snail! Little by little I begin to knit again. I have a large project in store (a wedding gift for some very dear friends) but while I was waiting for the yarn to arrive, I knit up this little guy:
Pattern: Easy-Care Cacti by Carol Meldrum and Julie Marchington
Yarn: The nylon yarn I inherited. :D
Mods: Um, this is kind of the pattern. I basically looked at a picture and made it up as I went.
My in-laws bought a place around the corner from us so they could come stay as long as they wanted without feeling like they were overstaying their welcome (they never have). Since it's a part-time residence, they can't really have plants. I thought this would be an amusing little housewarming present. It was. They liked it!
The gift yarn has arrived - bare swish worsted from Knit Picks. The swatch is YUMMMMM. Washed and dried it is SO SOFT. I can't wait to start knitting this gift!
PS - I hope you all are doing fantastically! I check in on your blogs as often as I can... which isn't all that often with two 14month olds running around. But know that I do try to keep up and I follow many of your projects - which in turn inspires me to knit again! So I must add - Thank you for the inspiration!
