I forgot to mention yesterday that I’m thinking of starting a Knit Along.  My friend Meagan and I are going to make February Lady sweaters and wondered if any of you ladies would be interested in joining us.

It’s knit from worsted sized yarn so it’s a fairly quick knit and a fairly easy pattern.  I love that it’s top down, so you stop the sleeves and the body when they fit you -not the ‘perfect’ standard size.

Leave me a quick comment if you’d like to join us and I’ll try to figure out how to make a ‘linky’ thing.

Hurray, the Phoebe’s Sweater KAL (knit along) is officially under way!  Boy I envy the ladies doing the little size sweaters.  I have loooong rows of stocking stitch!  I like the slip stitch pattern along the bottom.   It gives a fairly basic sweater some ‘weight’.

I’ve almost got the first 12 inches done.  Then I think we start the waist shaping.  I really like the colours of this yarn.  But I do not like their big sloppy balls.  I’ve already had to rewind this one.

When we were first married I used to try and make all kinds of meals to leave in the fridge/freezer for Colin when I went back home.  He never ate them!  So now I leave the house full of food but Colin has to put them together himself.  In other words, he lives on peanut butter and honey sandwiches  🙂

I do try to make sure he has munchies to eat.  So yesterday I made 10 dozen chocolate chip cookies.  Hopefully that will last him through the weekend.  I also made a smoked ham for supper, he’ll nibble on that over the weekend too.

I hope I’ve packed enough knitting.  It’s terrible to run out half way through a visit.
