Free Knitting Accessories

If you are a knitter, and especially a knitter with a blog, then you need some cats! Well, there are two cats in need of a good home, so you are in luck!

Whitney has to move, and circumstances prevent her taking her two cats along. They are both very nice and playful (although one is slightly shy) and they are free to a good home, complete with all of their kitty belongings. Whitney will even pay for their next round of shots.

This is Nola - Female, spayed, 5 pounds, approx. 4 years old.

And this is Milo - Male, neutered, 10 pounds, approx. 2 years old

If you are interested in adopting Milo and Nola, please call Whitney at (502) 718-4190 or e-mail her at WLBarter@gmail.com

Everybody knows that Kevin has been (obsessively) knitting his Cobblestone. You may have seen the embarrassing picture I took of him when he was trying it on. If not, click here to revisit.

But Kevin has finished his sweater! Here are three pictures of him that are not embarrassing because finishing your first sweater and doing such an amazing job is something to be proud of, Kevin!

Congratulations, Kevin! Here's hoping your next project is just as successful without all of the drama!

You know it's spring when...

...even the yarn store owner has given up the needles to play in the dirt. So in lieu of any knitting-related content, I'll just borrow a trick from Holly and give you a picture of Iris.

Actually, there is something knitting-related. She is modelling a sweater vest that Whitney made from a Debbie Bliss pattern out of RYC Cashsoft. Man, those redheads can sure pull off green! (Even though, who am I kidding? We could wrap that kid in Kroger bags and she would still look adorable!)

Mary Beth's Central Park Hoodie!

Mary Beth finished her Central Park Hoodie. Doesn't it look fantastic? She knit it out of Rowan Calmer, a wonderful cotton and acrylic blend. It's got just enough stretch to make any garmet fit like a dream.

For those of you who would forego knitting a CPH since it's a "winter" sweater, try knitting it out of a cotton blend. Jessica and Erica both knit theirs out of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton, and it really worked up wonderfully. (Then you can just knit a winter version out of wool later.)
