Max always looks so silly (or slightly terrifying) when he lays on his back & hangs his head over the edge of the couch.
I finished the Monarch shawl while I was at work over the weekend. One full day ahead of schedule, I'll have you know!
It obviously needs to have the loose ends woven in & a good blocking.
I finally got around to blocking the Ladder scarf. I love the subtle, manly browns & grays of the yarn.
Here's a picture of the stitch detail:
The scarf was knit with Knit Picks' Chroma in the Fossil colorway on #5 needles & I only used one skein of yarn. The stitch pattern was a simple, two row repeat of multiples of 8 + 3 stitches. The pattern is:
- Row 1: K1, Sl1, *YO, K2, SK2P, K2, YO, K1,* K1
- Row 2: K1, Purl across to last stitch, K1
Meanwhile, more deer have come to visit.
I never realized what big ears deer have. They look like they could fly. Maybe they really are Santa's reindeer.
And yes, this photo shamed us into mowing the grass. I guess it had been a while. :(
