Switching gears

I have a feeling that my obsessive tendency is going to be directed at socks for awhile. This landed in my mailbox yesterday:

After months of waiting, I can finally say it was worth the wait. I devoured the book yesterday and cast on this morning:

It was tough to decide which pattern to knit. I have a feeling this book will be dog-eared in record time.

I received a couple of questions about how many stitches I cast on for A Scarf With No Name. Since I record everything about every object that I knit, I consulted my handy dandy knitting notebook. However, I didn’t find the cast on number, I found this:

Yes, that says “metric assload”. I didn’t even try to count the stitches. What I do remember is that I used a 46″ circular needle and the long tail cast on and cast on until the needle was full.

Samantha’s love affair with the pink bunny continues:

The poor bunny is soggy, missing most of the stuffing and one ear is partially chewed off. It was well worth the $2.

I realize that I am extremely biased, but I think Kishka is one of the most gorgeous mutts I’ve ever seen.  I love to take pictures of her.
