The Fluffy Pink Squid of Doom is Eating Ramius!

IMG_0015
OK, that's not actually happening at all. Ramius is fine. This is an "action shot" of my lap while I was working on the Cherry Blossom shawl and Ramius was sitting in my lap, under the shawl. Didn't mean to frighten you.

Know what I did this weekend? I finished the round and round knitting of the shawl! Now I just have to do the edging (all the way around) and I'm done! I'm a little more than halfway into my third ball of Shibui Knits Silk Cloud and knowing how edgings can eat yarn like it's going out of style, I think the four balls that were called for in the pattern will be just right. I know I'll have some left over, but I'm pretty sure I will have to use part of that fourth ball. (Just to clarify, the pattern calls for 4 balls of Silk Cloud. If you're using KSH, you'll need 5 balls of that as it's slightly heavier weight and has a bit less yardage per ball as the Silk Cloud.)

You may knit, Mommy, but just don't tickle de ears!

I've never thought of pink as a meezer color, but he looks lovely! (Don't tell him I said so.)

Cute photo. The knitting looks as ethereal as cotton candy.

This is precisely how I knit, Melanie!!

My sweet kittie sacks out on my knees, thereby permitting yards of knitted lace to drape around and adorn her.

Hugs to you both,
A
