Determined Cat

It turns out that the cat CAN get that giant yarn ball up the stairs. Maybe she thinks I want to knit in bed?

I finished the Plum Lotus scarf, but I haven't blocked it yet.

I didn't make it very long, because it's going to be an accessory scarf, as opposed to a "keep warm in winter" scarf. It will also lengthen a bit in blocking. I hope to have time to block it this weekend. It doesn't have any obvious places for blocking wires to go, so I may have to resort to using thousands of pins. Fun.

I also started the Simple Knitted Bodice. So far, so good, although I haven't gotten very far yet:

I'm modifying it slightly, to make the v neck shorter. I don't like my v necks that deep. I always feel like deep-v sweaters are falling off my shoulders, like with my Autumn Rose. The knitting is going smoothly so far.

I'm going through knitting magazine withdrawal right now. Other than Vogue's Holiday edition, there hasn't been a new knitting mag in a while. I'd love to have a new one about now. I wonder when the Winter editions come out?

It's cold enough for sweaters now, so I'm wearing my Gathered Pullover today. It's very comfortable. Alas, I am all dressed up with no place to go. I wanted to go out to lunch today, but all my friends were either sick, with toddlers, or had other plans. Hmph.

Tonight is the big Halloween/Harvest event at the local elementary school. It's always a lot of fun. This will be the first year that I'm not helping out in any sort of volunteer capacity. We can just go and have fun. I'll try to remember the camera, but don't count on it.
