Back Home

I'm back from a vacation that was way too short! I did finally start the Embossed Leaves socks (Interweave Knits Winter 2005) though I did the majority of the knitting on the plane ride home.

And yes Hila, we were in Bermuda! It's our favorite beach getaway and we had a lovely time doing pretty much nothing.

I got home and there was the next installment of the Petals Collection waiting for me! Hydrangea is the flower and the yarn looks yummy. I may not start these yet, as I still haven't finished Calla so many other little projects to finish up.

And yes, there is the rare cat-yarn picture. Goosh is our older cat, and she seemed so happy laying there that I didn't have the heart to give her the boot. She likes to lay on things. Anything, really.

Off to unpack, sort laundry and take care of a week's worth of dust...

Did you do the tubular cast-on with the Embossed Leaves? I have the perfect Lorna's Laces in my stash, but I am a little intimidated by the tubular cast-on. If you did it, was it as fiddly as it looks? The cast-on edge does look lovely.

Welcome back from vacation! Lovely color choice for the embossed leaves, looks like you got quite a bit done.

What a great name for your kitty! She looks very content and glad you didn't give her the boot. :)

Ah, Goosh is such a sweetie. I wouldn't be able to kick her out, either.
