My stuff…..

Sounds like something a 2-year-old might say, right? This has to be one of my biggest pet peeves EVER. I don’t know how it started. Maybe being the only girl in my family, but nonetheless, I start to quiver whenever someone touches or moves my stuff.

Now I have been married for 15 years, so this is not news to the hubby and yet he continues to mess with me. Let’s just not talk about the child, he has zero respect for anyones stuff. I go out of my way to be respectful of where other people leave their stuff. Even if it ends up in the dog’s mouth where she is happily chewing on it.

As we all know, this is major catalog season and our mailbox and yours have been stuffed with every L.L. Bean, Eddie Bauer and Williams-Sonoma catalog. I enjoy this part of the season. I usually sort the mail and put the catalogs off to the side for looking at when I get a chance. This might mean in a couple of days. Then I sit down and go through them and discard most. For some reason, this makes the hubby nuts. Tonight for instance, I was lingering in the kitchen flipping through a Williams-Sonoma and I announced…hey, they have their own Credit Card, boy would that be dangerous. It’s tough living with someone with no sense of humor.

On the knitting front, I have 2, yes you read correctly, 2 finished objects. One is my Easy Fold Poncho from Churchmouse Yarns. I did mine in Rowan Felted Tweed DK in a Teal color and it is heavenly and just right over a sweater for that “not strangled feeling in the car with a bulky coat”.

My second finished object is a hat for my hubby. The pattern is called Windschief by Stephen West. I used Sweet Georgia yarns Superwashed Worsted in Slate Gray and it was immediate LOVE. I really liked this pattern design. It had just the right amount of texture for my hubby. I just made him put it on for a quick photo. See…

The only modification I made was in the length as he wanted it to cover his ears so I added a 1/2 inch to the length. It is really a smart-looking hat. His next one is a surprise.

I decided that it was time to swatch for my Vitamin D cardigan I have been itching to knit. I also decided that it might be a perfect Yankee Dyer project. I am going to use the Yankee Tweed  and I think it’s going to look fabulous.

Here’s to swatching and getting gauge!

  1. Michele, you are such an awesome knitter. Kyle models very well.
    I agree with him the ears have to be covered for warmth. Keep it going
    & you will knitt away the cold weather that is on its way. I agree with you
    & your stuff, I have a system just like yours, I save those catalogs for a
    special time when I can enjoy them with a good cup of tea. LOL auntie
