Swallows nest building!

Last picture for today! I enjoyed watching the swallows making nests on the sides of this building as the architecture was Spanish in style it was fitting. You could set in the Spa and watch the birds or the boats sailing by on the lake. Very relaxing! Posted by Hello

My new friend and ME

A picture of me sleeping with the new addition to my family.... He doesn't even have a name yet but wondered into our room while we were in Clear Lake. I asked around and found out that the resort was planning on catching him and a few other cats and taking them to the pound.... I couldn't let that happen so when we packed up he mysteriously ended up in the van with all our stuff. He slept under a seat all the way home and is now sleeping under my bed. Any Ideas for a name??? Posted by Hello

Clear Lake April 15-17

This is a picture of our room at our Clear Lake resort in Nice, Ca. The picture is taken from our private dock on the lake. My husband and I took my mother up for er Birthday because she and I have a class on the 23rd of April and her birthday is the 24th. We had alot of fun sitting on our patio and knitting watching the boats sail by! next time we go we are taking our kayaks. Looking forward to it! Posted by Hello

Frog Pond for Me

A picture of me caught in the FROG POND with my White Gansey.... rip it rip it RIP IT!!! AUGHHHHHH All that time lost... OH well at least I'm enjoying the pattern and yarn. Posted by Hello

Gansey update and more

As you can see I have frogged about 4 inches the white gansey sweate. Pulled those pesky needles out and started wrapping it back on the cone!!! The arm holes were going to be about 10.5 inches deep. I'm altering the pattern and I making the arm holes closer to 8.5 inches...
In the mean time I knitted my first doily pictured below. I'm very proud of this as I've always enjoyed Lace and find it very beautiful. It was very easy and I was surprised how fast It went. I even found a mistake in the pattern but worked it out easily enough. Lew DeYoung was helping me with it. When I blocked it his comment was I had done Very good. This is quite a complement.
Now on to more commissioned knitting. I'm knitting a tank top for the local knitting store I teach classes at, Fuzzy Penguin. If you live in the Sacramento, Ca.
