Knitting Without Dog Hair Is Not an Option

Hi there - My name is Claudia. I live with my hubby and our two furry kids in Georgia, USA. Originally I am from Germany - southern belle from Bavaria replanted to the Southern US. I am very addicted to knitting - 4-5 projects going at the same time... What can I say...

Lost in Space

Or to put it in other words, lost in the basket of UFOs was a white cotton tank top. Until last night... OMG - I knitted this top two (!!!) years ago and totally forgot about it all this time. Until last night - when I was looking for something else - and it fell into my hands. I remembered that after I finished knitting the back and front and after I added the little collar, I did not like it. But I forgot why I disliked it. Anyway - it was a perfect time to find it. We have very hot weather here just now - highs in the 90's. So, I sat down, weaved in all the ends, seamed the sides and voilĂ :

White Cotton Top

I am getting really old - I don't remember where I found the pattern. I think it was in a knitting magazine and I don't remember what cotton yarn I used. But I do know it is cotton and the color is white... Anyway - I am quite happy the way this turned out. Hubby took some great pix last night before the sun went away completely - almost magazine quality ;-) Hey, I like to brag about him every once in a while - he is a great guy!

And I also put some finishing touches on Cousin Itt, after he was done felting and drying. I am not sure if this is maybe the female version of Cousin Itt. Decide for yourself...

Cousin Itt after felting

I am always amazed at how felting totally changes knitting. Very cool. ;-)

On Wednesdays I go to one of the SNB-ATL meetings in Gwinnett. I have a full bag of knitting with me - the Gryffindor scarf, the SNB drop stitch tank top and a felted purse. Think that's enough? Well - I couldn't decide and I brought the more mindless projects I am working on at present time. I learned the hard way that taking complicated knitting projects to a group where I chat a lot just ends in a ripping disaster. And I don't really need to invite misery, do I?

Well - this week is mostly over - 2 more days and there is another weekend around the corner. HA!

That top was well worth rescuing! You look great in it, too. Little Ms. Itt is quite cute, as well.
