Happy Halloween!

Well, I finished knitting the main body of the recycled silk cardigan this weekend. The colors are pretty intense the the variety of textures make it look pretty funky. I'm hoping that by finishing the edges and blocking it that it will somehow transform into something socially acceptable to wear!

My biggest critic is our new kitten, Bonnie. She has no qualms about unraveling items or treating others like chew toys. Well, Miss Bonnie, when you sprout opposable thumbs and learn to knit then I'll give credence to your opinion! In the meantime, I need to keep everything out of her reach.

The recycled silk yarn offered a difference knitting experience. The colors were fun and wild, but the thin spots required lots of breaking and retying. I'm looking forward to beginning a project with a more consistent yarn. My next project will be the flower basket shawl in Elsebeth Lavold's silky wool. I admit that I planned on doing this over a week ago, but the new yarn came in. That Yarn Attention deficit Disorder and Addiction (YADDA) is hard to overcome.

We love our animals don't we? Why is that? I haven't figured it out yet myself, but hopefully soon, I'll think of a reason. Happy Halloween!
