So sister/roommate Kara is out of town for 10 days. Leaving me the house to myself. I used to live alone so I thought it would be nice to have the place all to myself and that I would enjoy my alone time but frankly, I am feeling a little lonely. I miss Kara…sigh.
I also thought that I would be knitting like crazy. I have been knitting but not crazy-like. It has been pretty slow going on all my projects and for some reason I haven’t been able to commit to one. Each project is strewn about on the parts of the couch I am not sitting on, all screaming “pick me, pick me.” I just need to settle on something, buckle down, and finish. Here are a couple updates:
Rambling Rose : I am on the left front (the part with the pretty rose chart).
See the beginnings of the vine? I am enjoying it so far but this chart is pretty slow going. I knit several rows and then I get tired. I am encouraged by the start though. I think it is going to be pretty.
What I have been working on the most is a new project…
Oh yes, I have joined the many ranks of the Green Gable -rs. I love the color I found at my LYS. It is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Willow Leaf which is like a bright olive green. The color in the picture is not quite accurate�??it is a bit lighter in real life. I am almost to the point where you put the sleeves on a holder. I can’t wait to get there because then I can really try it on. I am loving top down sweaters mainly because you get to adjust the sizing as you go.
Next up, I need to start my lace project for the Amazing Lace…my team introduction is soon to come. So stay tuned for that.
Also, thanks to everyone for your encouragement on my Deep-V Vest. This week I am going to embark on operation goodbye wings. Cross your fingers.
As for tonight, I think I will get some knitting done. The question is…which project?

I really can’t wait to see more progress on Rambling Rose. That was one of my favorites from that Rowan and I’m so glad someone is making it!!
Isn’t it strange when the house is all quiet? I feel so off balance when the kids aren’t home! I hate it!
Rambling Roses looks so delish! Look at green gable go! : )
