FINISHED! [Oct. 15th, 2005|01:38 am]

Branching Out is finished!! Going from finishing the knitting to getting it blocked out took awhile, as we have cats here, and my last attempt at blocking something overnight led to the cats screwing it up. Not willing to take the risk with my precious lace scarf, I took it and Grandpa's scarf to my parents' house, which has no indoor animals, and blocked it on their carpet.



It blocked out beautifully, and the lace pattern shows off to great effect.

That being done, I had to take it outside to take an artsy picture of it. I may actually post this photo in my DeviantArt account as textile art.



I loved the Elspeth Lavold silky wool yarn, and I'd definately use it again. Considering possibly doing a double wide branching out stole in either silky wool, or Doucer et Soie.

Now that's finished, I made a visit to the yarn store in Paris, which is a bit of a drive, and smaller than the one close by, but very cute, and the proprietress was incredibly nice. With her help, I managed to find a substitute yarn for Rowan All Season's Cotton, and promptly cast on Trelllis for my cousin Jeff's baby.



I'm doing it in Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece, which is a cotton and merino wool blend. It's lovely to the touch, though it splits more than I'd like I haven't had too many problems with it otherwise. I've not worked with a cotton before, and I can definately tell the difference in terms of wool's natural fiber elasticity, and cotton's lack thereof. It does show the cables well despite that, and the pattern is super cute.

I'm knitting it for a little girl, and managed to find the cutest shade of butter yellow. I'm sick of giving little girls pretty pastel pink presents. And that alliteration was (mostly) unplanned. :) I'm about halfway up the back now, just past the beginning of the armscye.

On another note, though, the Vader pants had to be taken in. My brain is exploding. Gawd I'm sick of this project.

Магниты большей мощности разорят олигархов!

Супер магнит,

Как Вы поступите, будете платить или экономить,
Вы уже готовы остановить свой счетчик магнитом?
Магниты большей мощности уже продаются на каждом
углу, не верите спросите у «Яндекса»
или вот один из

[url=http://voda-vor.ru/magnit.html]Интернет магазин магнитов? официальный сайт.[/url]

Оформи субсидию сибе сам! Решай сам кому сколько платить!

По большему счету мне все равно где вы купите магниты, но на сегодняшний день
опустить алегархов можно только так, объединившись в мести и тихо протестовать.

google sniper 2.0 review

How's life. So I'm very happy I finally encountered this website considering that I ended up researching for it for a period of time since this is an especially revealing online site. Now I'm about to introduce myself right now. Now I am thirty-eight yrs. old in addition I'm being employed as an actual soil scientist. I usually desire to try out exercises as mountain biking and also play video game titles like J.B. Harold Series#1 Murder Club. My personal new hobby is focused on google sniper 2.0 review. I examined a cool manual about this which explained: A Google Sniper Two method is the modern variation from the unique Yahoo and google killer product or service which is a simple and easy extremely simple easy to understand list of guidelines only for starting out plus the Yahoo and google Mindblowing A couple of method is an effective simple simple to implement set of instructions only for a Newbie affiliate marketer. Should you not would like to investigate e-book you can view the actual video lessons preferably. Yahoo Monster Two product is with regards to choosing not too difficult key terms so that you might not need to hang on several weeks in advance of discovering any improvements. Bing Colossal Couple of is only one strategy to make money online and, and it is a wonderful way to start. Will it be the most beneficial web marketing system on the market. I'm not sure if the information is right but it opened up my eyes regarding [url=http://www.squidoo.com/google-sniper-20-review]google sniper 2.0 review[/url].

I'm certain I could look for a substantial amount of insightful facts on this web site and so I will visit rather a lot from now on. I'll make an effort to become somewhat helpful as well simply by expressing a certain amount of tips I grasp. I'm grateful for you for your time, have fun guys!!!
