Get one ram he will keep you in wool and lamb chops (just don't let Shari Lewis find out) Lets see how many of the young kids on this thread understand that referrence.

Carla, Great choice on the buttons and yarn for the baby surprise! SO cute!

I ran errands with DD this morning and have tutoring this afternoon. I"m still not sure what to do with my Eden Madil bamboo yarn. It's very soft and very drapy (Is that a word?) but is also VERY splitty! I'm not sure it will work for Mr. Greenjeans, although I LOVE the pattern. The yarn fabric looks loose when I get even close to gauge. I'm not convinced this is a Worsted weight yarn. I'm looking at other options, too (thanks, Julie!), but am still waffling. I'm really tired of stockinette stitch from Green Gables, but I have a feeling that's what this yarn needs. Maybe I'll wait until I'm done with GG and need another mindless project.....

The cabling is in the ribbing on the Viking version, but not in the original. I'm afraid Lisa Kay is the clever one to have come up with this.

Never have been one for doing patterns again. once done that would be the last time I would look at it. but this one I will definitely do at least one more time. you can find what ever cable you like and do you own thing. Never would have thought of doing it myself until I saw this.

I have 20 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran set aside for my next one already.

ah, the State of Confusion. I run a taxi service to and from there. Its a fun place. I also sometimes make stops at the State of Denial... perhaps I can pick up some extra business at the land of Delusions?

OMG I haven't heard about Lamb Chop in FOREVER (Thank GOD). My brother was a little obsessed. I gave him a stuffed lamb (not a la the character, just a generic lamb) when I was about 4 and he was about 2, and he was pretty much glued to it for the next 13 years (at which point it got a little too close to disintigrating). If looks could kill, though, don't ever start singing the Song that Never Ends around me!
As a second note - I don't mind eating things that are already dead when I meet them, but I'd never be able to eat an animal that I met when it was alive. I can't even eat choose-your-own lobster. The only creatures that I can kill without feeling remorse are the kinds of ants that bite and mosquitoes, gnats, no-see-ums, etc. IF they are bothering me at the time.
Forgot to mention - my sweater got second. The first place sweater was better (sometimes with photography I feel like they are biased towards close-ups and mine is a better photo, just not as close to the subject). I got 3 firsts and a third in photography. I need to remember to put birds in the animal sections, I put in my dingo but she just looks like a dog so I didn't win anything with her. My lorikeet, one hibiscus, and my big knitting photo (one from my sock story/final project) all got firsts, and the cassowary got third.

Hey, there, good friends and knitters !
Anyone still remember me?
I miss the heck out of you guys. Mike was APPROVED for Social Security disability payments, so things have eased up on us, but we're still getting caught up, so, NO INTERNET YET !

I finished my Hederas and my Socks of Kindness, and started a pair of Express Lanes, but they didn't look good in the multicolor Trekking that I'm using. So, now I'm trying the same yarn with the Kaibashira socks, and they don't look too hot either. It maybe time for me to switch yarns ! But I'm still loving the sock knitting !
I need to go and check the Sockamania stuff. .............I haven't looked at it since June !

I know what my sweater is gonna be ...I remebered that I had bought a Leisure Arts book when I first started knitting...'cause I wanted to get myself up to be able to knit this sweater...and well here we are and I'm just now thinking about it...It's the last picture #6 the sporty hood...only thing is it uses a bulky/chunky weight yarn ...so I dug out my first sweater I started and I only have 13 skeins of that which would put me 170 yards short of what I need...so I messaged a gal on ravelry to see if she had any extra yarn when she had finished the sweater...if not I'll have to wait awhile and order the yarn for it..

jess_hawk that's awesome

Gina~Maybe a bigger needle for a shawl would work better with lace? I'm sure the right pattern will come along for it

Carla~The sweater is sooo cute! I use to read all the time too...knitting is easier to do with the kids though

Chris~I remeber lamb chop...that was a good show

Julie~ohhh alpacas would be the way to go...I've been wondering about their new sock yarn...if the elastic would be annoying like it was in KP's dancing yarn...

Dotty, it's so good to see ya posting...we miss you so much here...I hope you guys can get the internet back soon but we understand...I miss seeing your projects...I'm glad you two are doing good...

Ok I'm off to clean a bit...it's soooo hot here today for us...this is when you need central air
