My Dog Ate My Homework

Tuseday, I went upstairs to finish the pillow I was knitting for my One Skein Exchange Pal. Today is the deadline. I'm late as usual. I never do well with deadlines.

The pillow had about an inch of knitting left to finish, and the flower to crochet. It wasn't on the table where I had left it, but on the floor. It had been turned into Puppy Designer Lace, complimented by freshly toothed, serrated bamboo needles.

A trip to the stash closet turned up wonderful skein of Jaeger Chamonix left from my Everyday Cardigan.

I've chosen to knit the Double Cable Scarf, shown on page 33 of the book.

It will be a quick knit. The yarn is thicker than called for so the gauge isn't quite right. To me, scarf pattern measurements are only approximations. The blend of Angora and Fine Merino should only serve to mean, larger scarf, all the better! I hope she likes it!

Very pretty and naughty dog. A picture of the eaten homework would be fun though!

I liked some of the patterns in this book, but thought only one ball of yarn was stretching it on some of the scarves. I haven't bought it yet and they don't have it in the library yet.

You do need to show pics of the eaten homework, and the needles. Annie had to start putting her knitting on top of the fridge when she was out.
