If you know the nutmegknitter Then you know one of my best friends on the planet. I just got a call from her (completely calm by the way as only she can be) She has been admitted to the hospital. They are going to see how things progress through the night, and then possibly induce tomorrow.

Trouble with Fetching

I know that this should be the easiest pattern on the planet, and I am sure that I have dome more difficult patterns than this, but I am having trouble understanding the thumb separating.

Next Round: Using waste yarn, k7; slip these sts back to left needle and k them again using working yarn; work in 4x1 Rib as set to end.

Work 4 more rounds in 4x1 Rib.

Work Cable Round.

Work 4 more rounds in 4x1 Rib.

How many stitches am I putting on Waste yarn, because later on it says.

Carefully remove waste yarn and place resulting live sts on two double-point needles; there will be 7 sts below the opening and 6 sts above. Attach yarn and k the 7 sts on lower needle; using a second needle, pick up and k 2 sts in space between upper and lower needle, k first 3 sts from upper needle; using a third needle, k remaining 3 sts from upper needle and pick up and k 2 sts in space between this needle and lower needle. 17 sts.

Can nayone offer some suggestions, I would really like to get this pattern done tonight.

Right now I have the most interesting house. I have one cat in one room, and she has resigned herself to the life of being in one room.

i just brought my new cat home to where I am house sitting. I have him contained to one room, and he isn't really thrilled about that. He wants to explore.

Then ther eis the dog. She knows that the cat is behind one door, and she an hear the other one crying behind another door. She is beside herself with curiosity.

Any advise would be great.

Okay, so I finished a hat (used the garter brimmed hat pattern from LMKG) I used lumpy bumpy from Farmhouse YArns. I also finishe done Calorimetry and I am almost finished with 1/2 of a fetching. Her eis the problem, my hands hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really would like to have 2 pairs of fetching (still trying to decide which yarn I should use for the other) and one more calorimetry.

I will post pictures tomorrow, when I am really playing with my camera taking pictures ofHagrid. I was supposed ot bring him home today, but alass, his foster mom is sick and did not come inot work today.

I have been spending the bulk of hte day watching Next Top Model and SVU, it has been great.

If you are reading htis blog, and think something that has been finished might be for you, well. . . You will just have to wait. I will be posting some finished objects, but you will have to live in suspense until the big day.

Still waiting on word from nutmeg knitter as to the arrival of the little one. I have wagers placed on Sunday, as that is the wedding anniversary.

Please think about shopping here

Hello all,

I know this is non-knitting related, but it is theatre related. As you probably know, unless you are under a rock, there is a strike going on in New York. This strike has closed all but a few of the broadway shows. This time of year is the major fundraising time for a wonderful organization called Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

This is a wonderful organization that has been raising money for people living with AIDS for many years. Usually, they would have the casts of shows raising money during the holiday time, and the casts have been known to raise upwards of $200,000. The website for the organization has a wonderful store, you can purchase clothing items, CD's (the holiday ones are great) and many other novelties that are holiday related. Please keep this organization in your Holiday giving htis year. Without the additional support, they will be struggling.

Working on some Christmas knitting now, Things looking good on that front. I have a four day weekend next weekend where I plan to sit and enjoy real cable while taking care of my friends dog, cat, and getting to know my new cat.

Okay, back on this planet

So the past few weeks have been, shall I say. . . . Okay, yeah they have been ridiculously busy. A few FO's to show off. First things first.
This is a Harry potter Scarf (DUH) and here it is, pleasantly modeled by my favorite seven year old.
I am really happy with how it came out. Now for the next bit of cuteness.
Be prepared, this is WAY Cute
I know, they are just too cute for words. I made them for my cousin who is due in April. Can't wait to see these on the little one.
Okay, now for the really big news, the theatreknitter is joining the ranks of pet owners, just check him out.
He is certainly tall (no that is not a short counter)
And totally handsome

And Very curious. He spent a lot of time at this door trying to figure out what was going on behind it. I am hoping to get him Thanksgiving weekend. We shall see. I can't wait. I am really looking forward to it.

Oh, and back on a knitting note. A few weeks back I got home after an OBNOXIOUS day at work, and in my mail box was the coolest package ever.

It is a Yarn Bouquet. It is from knitrella I think. Of course, it was ordered from me by none other than becca It is AWSOME. I think I may even make socks out of it. I found it even cooler that the card was handwritten. It is a bad picture, but I will show it anyway

I won't even bother getting into work right now, it is too hectic to discuss. Just crazy, but hopefully getting better. I promise to post more as the holidays get closer. wish me luck with Hagrid, Oh yeah, that is the cats name. How cool is that. Anyway, I have not officially been approved by the agency yet, so wish me luck.
