We have been having a bit of trouble with our oldest cat spraying (peeing) in places where he shouldn't-mainly in my house! We caught him spraying my wicker basket of shawls. I'm Not a happy lady.
Shawls have to be hand washed and blocked until they dry.
In my haste to get them all done, I washed these in the same basin. The big one on the right which I had previously dyed, bled onto the two light colored shawls. Oh, bother!
I blocked them out and will now have some mottled shawls. Since the cat has had a good trouncing, so far so good on breaking him of this nasty new habit.
I took some time to finish the January blocks for the RSC2016. I hate to be behind. I am now caught up on this group and for the MKAL shawl!
These are the colors I have picked out for the February blocks according to the challenge.
One pair of Grandma Socks for oldest grandson finished! It is a joy to knit with hand spun!
We had to go to Jax Beach for another doctor appointment today. The beach therapy after the appointment was foggy!
It was a bit warmer than our last visit but still not as warm as I like. It's okay, I have to go back to this same office three times next week!
The waves were very subdued and we couldn't see very far. I looked for shark's teeth but didn't find any. There is always next time.......
Today's car-ride knitting: a hat with the color change yarn for oldest grand daughter.
It's funny, I found that the edge wants to curl a bit this time. I didn't have any problem with that on the first three hats. A bit of investigation shows that I placed the color change yarn on top of the yarn change each stitch for the first row. When I changed it to being on the bottom of the color change on the other hats, no curl. Note to self for the next hat-pay attention to which yarn is the MC and keep it on top for the stranding. This hat will get a good blocking to flatten it out....no tinking this time around!
The colors have more contrast this combination and if I can get some more sunshine when I'm done, I will get a picture of the alternate colors!
