Pretty Things



We are still buried in snow (it's awesome :-D)...



...so I thought I'd share a little Valentine's Day spring green (aren't these miniature daffodils awesome?).



Plenty of blooms still to come (Saint Tim's pretty awesome, too ;-).



Hmmm - the Pretty Thing still looks about the same as it did the other day. Except if you look close, you'll see the green thread lifeline I threaded through before I started the "easy" part of the pattern so I'm don't have to worry about another frogging (ripping it back - rip it, rip it - not so awesome).

I re-knit most of it yesterday during the biathalon. I decided that was the perfect sport for a brutal re-knit. I felt like one of the cross country skiers, slogging along, albeit through some beautiful scenery, carrying a gun.

You never know when a gun might come in handy while knitting.

So how did you convince the Yarn Harlot to share the "Pretty Thing" pattern? I'm 1 of the 937 people asking, ok, begging for it.

I saw the fire and thought it was your needle that was on fire. :-)

"Wow! She's scorchin'!" is what I thought! :-)

I find myself at yet another decision point. "Is it time to start decreasing for the toe?"

My hope is to finish the test slipper tonight, so I can felt it tomorrow and then go shopping for more yarn............

I am eager (and nervous!) about what will happen when I felt......

You made me laugh! Which is nice since I had a horrible day on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Your flowers were lovely....for a moment I thought they were in your garden.

I know this is an old post, but what can I say? I was looking around at lamb/sheep on your blog...because I still need to get a real good feel for what they look like from all angles and your blog is soooooo good.

I really like the daffodils photos in this post.
