More For Gift Box

And something for me too. I spent the weekend going through knitting magazines (of which I have hundreds), note to self, do not buy any more magazines. Anyway, trying to line up a pattern that I like with yarn in my stash is no easy feat. But since I'm on a yarn diet I persevered until I came up with this little cardi. It's from Knitsimple Fall 2009 issue. A little playing around with needles until I got gauge but I cast on and hopefully I'll get through this without having to frog.


And for the gift box, another pair of Jaywalkers finished.

Socks - Jaywalkers

And just for the heck of it, there's little fish being knit whenever I have some leftover yarn and I'm bored with everything else. To make a really nice blanket I suppose one should wait until all fish are knit in order to make a nice color palette. Tough, I don't relish the though of sewing hundred's of fish together and dealing with ends so I'm doing them as they happen. However it turns out doesn't matter, it will be warm

Tessalated Fish Blanket

I'm still getting daily updates from Greece where my husband still sits by his very ill mother's bedside hoping for a miracle.
