Memorial Day super Cast On

It's Memorial Day and rainy here. What better way to celebrate than to curl up in my chair with a latte and start casting on.

First project Schaefer yarn Lola Bunny designed by Beth Skwarecki, I found this little Cutie on The Knitting Blog by Mr. Puffy the Dog.  It is super cute and I have several baby showers to go to, I usually make my crochet baby blanket, but have made so many of those, I need to try something else. I saw this and knew this was the pattern to try. Free pattern download here.

I am trying this using the magic loop method, which I have always had trouble with, (ladders), until I watched this utube by Knitwitch, I urge you to check out her other videos also. She is a very good teacher.

 

Her website is filled with nice goodies, Yarn bowls, spindle bowls, ceramic buttons, among other things. All made by her.

Whoops, I'm shopping..

I got back the Doggie Bag I finished, I used the pattern from the Yarnpath. My

002beading girlfriend made a little beaded tie for it.

It is so pretty, I have decided to line it,

and use it to carry my sock in progress with me.

 

And also inspired by Mr. Puffy I am casting on the Sursa Shawl from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton's Book Number Two;, can't wait to see how it turns out. I think it will be a quick knit.

Mr. Puffy is wise in the ways of knitting and reminds me of the book: Everything I need to know I learned from my dog.

One of the lessons that has always stayed with me is: Take Naps, Play Nice, Snuggle Often. I'm sure Mr. Puffy has some knitting knowledge he could include.

  1. What an incredible treat to stop by and see what lovely things you had to say about Mr Puffy and his projects! I am pleased beyond words that you have enjoyed the blog and projects that I have shared. I agree completely that our dogs have life figured out and all we need to do is pay attention. I also hope you enjoy and have fun with the projects!

  2. I love my knitwitch bowl to hold yarn. I plan to buy another soon. They are stable and work really well with yarn balls, my favorite way to wind. NAYY.
