Well guys, gryphon00, the whiney little girl that he is, has been complaining to me that I promised him a scheduled clog chat and haven't done it yet. (wah, wah, wah) So here goes:
Monday Night July 31st at 7pm EDT.
That should give you Yankees on the east coast enough time to get home from work. (Please note I am not talking about my southern brothers here, we don't have jobs and if we do we don't work at them) And we'll chat until we get sick of each other or the conversation turns to sex. (I know Parrot fell off his perch reading that... he'll be there at 6!).

Well, after hot days, Portland now feels positively autumnal in the morning....Fall, when I dream of the perfect sweater to wear while riding my big bright-chestnut gelding through the woods, golden leaves spiraling down about me. Of course, someone should be there with me....but as I've never met him....his face is obscured. All I know is that he isn't allergic to wool.
My sash-shawl is coming along beautifully, and I plan to take some time today to work on it. I will also work on getting the kilt finished for Vancouver, BC pride next week.
I'm getting some pictures taken tonight, so y'all get to see some of the goodies I've been working on. Such fun.

Here are a couple of things I've made recently. The first is a 4x2 ribbed beanie made without a pattern. My first attempt was slightly too big, so I frogged it & reduced the # of stitches. It's now my favourite.
Last weekend I embarked on my first attempt at illusion knitting. I think it turned out great for a first try. I'll probably turn it into a cushion or somesuch. I love this picture of Scruff, he looks like he's planning to take over the world with an army of knit-bots.

Here is the first knitted clog from Australia, well at least on MWK! This was an experiment as I substituted the yarn and needle size and must say it has turned out well with only a few minor hiccups!! Even managed to watch TV while knitting them. The felting process was much easier than I expected, even with a front load washer. Took just 25 mins of wash cycle to get the right size. Not much fun getting the door to open when the machine is full of hot water and trying to stop the suds from spewing all over the floor though. I used one end of blue and one of white as they are the favourite colors of my partner, Keith. We have all manner of plates and kitchen stuff in blue & white so we have christened them 'willow clogs'!!
