Eye Candy Friday

I instituted a weekly fiber show and tell and within one week, I've already forgotten all about it and failed to post for All Things Sheepy Thursday. You'll have to settle for Got Fiber? Friday this week. I do have fiber and I do have progress on Cloud Chaser, though I'm not chasing clouds, I'm chasing time. I really wanted to wear this on Sunday, and right now, it's not looking so good, but not for lack of trying.


As I suspected, the collar, while simple, is just a little tedious at this point and my mind and hands are prone to wander off if not entertained or supervised. For sure, the Kindle has gotten in the way of knitting progress, and so has work. For cryin' out loud, I only have 3 pattern repeats, the ribbed border and the finishing of the arm holes. I should be able to complete that in my sleep.

I've included a recent photo of Leo, snapped just this morning, to distract from the fact that I'm forgetful. And lazy. He wanted a belly rub and a photo shoot. You know, I think Leo just might be a part of the distraction issue for me. Don't blame me if he distracts you from finishing things, too.

Now that's a happy dog!

I'm cheering your knitting fingers on. Purely selfish - I want to see that garment on the model.

Leo is hysterically funny and cute! Are his teeth whitened?! I found your blog via Mt. Musings (love Fridays are Golden). I have just begun to learn to knit -- I'm expecting my first grandbaby in August. I'm having a terrible time of, and must eventually get myself to a class. I'm all thumbs and when the stitches go wrong I have no idea what I've done! I'm determined to get this knitting thing DOWN.

Leo needs some knitted underpants, and a hat and boots....with a very manly look of course. I have a feeling you will succeed with your goal of getting it done by Sunday. Your cardigan that is.

Rudee said...

TaraDharma--don't give up on the knitting. A few classes make all of the difference. Leo's teeth are both large and naturally white.

I am officially in love with Leo. Just sayin'...

I understand. Sometimes you just get to a project where you are 95% done and for some reason you hit a roadblock.

I'm distracted. Can't get any work done now. Too bad I'm here at work for 6 more hours on midnight shift. I swear the clock is moving backwards.

Denise said...

Looking forward to seeing your finished sweater.

That looks like a happy dog.

I like that particular blue color. I hope you do, too, because you've been working on this project for quite a while.
