Some Knitting Commenced

Our eyes may have been bigger than our needles.
This is the container that went with us..

Whilst the ceiling caved in at home, and the kids played in the water, some knitting did commence. Strangely enough, people seem to think it's weird when you knit in public, especially at a water park. I kept wanting to say things like, 'you know, it's not really 85 degrees, outside it's like 5 degrees!' Or things like "I'm knitting a bathing suit. Or even, 'well you know, at least I'm not sitting mindlessly doing nothing, I am creating fiber art!'.

But in any case, we got a few projects completed.

Most of my weekend was spend working on this shawl.

It's about 50% finished??

Rosie came along and we hung out at night and spun this

This hat is what happens when knitting and crochet meet.
Mom in her amazing skills did this in an afternoon. Adorable!!
Do you see the flower on top!?

Knitting Schmitting, we're just happy they're home to feed us!

  1. My eyes are always bigger than my needles. I take too much with me everywhere. It's better to have too much than not enough is my theory.

    I've never got odd looks while knitting in public. Maybe they are afraid I'm might stab them.

    Love your kitties.
