Another One Bites The Dust...
I will, I promise, be heading to bed a little early tonight.
The ticker above is ticking away. There's only 2 weeks, and one weekend before the Charlotte NC Crafty Cat Show. So you know what I've done this weekend, right?
I could not put the Knitpicks Organic Cotton down. After I did a second swatch (and my eyes tell me that the first is closer to 19 stitches per 4 inches - on 7s - than the 6s are!), and then cast on for another dishcloth from Evelyn Clark's Dishcloths from the Heart. This one is Tiny Hearts. The one thing I'll say for my garter stitch on cotton? It's apparently all over the place. Maybe after I block it? HAHAHAHA! I'm going to block a dishcloth? Actually this is going to be a facecloth, as the yarn is so scrumptiously soft, I can't imagine doing dishes with it!
Ok. I'll admit that I also did a lot of sewing for the show, which is why the weekend flew by:
A few checkbooks and Fionas...
And three Knitnanas. Take a close look at the first one, won't you? (Click to embiggen) Remember when I said there was another fabulous new black cat fabric I had to show you? This is the one. Purple, fushia and black (there's a touch of teal green in the cat eyes, and a bit of lavender in there, too). The fabric is amazing, and I'll be having a terrible time giving up this bag. But I will, because I'm going to make myself a Grand Mera from this fabric!
Then the second fabric you've seen before, the Crazy Cat Ladies. I liked the way it made up in the Knitnana size with the green lining. Other than that, you can see another Ears & Whiskers Knitnana at the back. The fabric is a classic, and folks just love it, even if they're not in love with cats...
Hopefully they'll be hits at the show.
(Oh, and yes, you're right - I'm the one who used me to wipe the floor - I have no one else to blame but me!)
Off to catch a few minutes of 60 Minutes. Let's hope this week goes smoothly?
