cabin fever setting in...


took this through the screen on the window
it snowed a little more than this
but it got too dark to see it
it's all gone
and it's raining now
and I have a headache
and it's cold-ish




found these on the camera
I made them for the
grandson
he likes owls



well he did the last time he was here
I think he likes it all when he sees it
and then forgets what it was
that's what being 6 is all about




the more I work on this the more I hate the yarn
and I don't know if I will have enough
that's all there is of it
and I can't get more as it was discontinued
  I still like the pattern and still find it easy
even though
again
today
I had a near disaster
mis counted, mis read,
stitches fell off
different from them being pushed off on purpose
but
with a lot of patience
and bright light
I managed to get back to a place I could start again



and I have finished one more column
this yarn tends to split and has some areas where the ply is broken
it's annoying me!!!
but practice makes perfect
or so they say

see ya later
:)

How annoying when things drop off the needles! You have done well to recover it. Love the pictures too, and those owls are so cute! Mia S

Your weather is just like mine then. No more snow, but plenty of rain... Do not like it one bit. Your knitting looks great, but splitting yarn is truly annoying. Hope you have enough. Love your owls, I'm sure he'll love them!

What a pity you don't like the yarn, the colour is beautiful. Hope it will be worth the frustration of knitting with something so awkward when you come to wear it :D

I see your mild weather turned to snow. The owls you made are so very cute. And your newest project looks like it would definitely take some concentration. Looks great. Stay warm and cozy! Tammy
