Just how cute is this!
No wonder The Queen loves these little guys. Bart knows how to really enjoy a sunny Texas day -- when we have one, that is! I have to throw in a completely gratuitous animal or grandson picture every once in awhile, and this one was just too good to pass up.
But what have you been knitting? you may wonder. I dispatched the first attempt at my favorite vest design to the Frog Pond as promised, and came up with this:
Not even a hint of carpet-ness here. I like this version much better. It's Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Cashmere, and it's going to have a lovely drape. The gauge is spot-on with this yarn, too. It has some bounce, and a great silken sheen. It isn't really white, but more of an ivory color.
I didn't photograph it, yet, but I finished the light green Nancy Bush lace sock, and I've started the second one to knit as I travel. The vest and a couple of future pairs of socks are going on my vacation with me. We'll see how much knitting gets done. Hopefully, a lot. I don't think I'll be blogging as I travel, but I'll have plenty to say about it when I get back. The Fabulous Traveling Judies are on the trip, so there's bound to be a lot of fun, and good knitting going on.
Yes, Agnes is going, too. She's not in the same league with Delores, but she loves to travel.
