Oh No! It Happened Again!

First of all, I am not working on Square 11. I am in fact working on Square 10 :-(

Anyway, I had to restart this square because of our little cat (as I mentioned the other day). Well, this morning my husband confessed to me that he my knitting and the vacuum had a little run in last night. It seemed that my husband decided to vacuum the living room after I went to bed. He apparently didn't see my knitting that I had tucked away behind a table. But the vacuum did and now the whole thing is unraveled. Not only that but the vacuum also sucked up my bamboo knitting needle and broke it.

My husband felt so badly about this that he mended the needle as best he could. But as for the square...it is back to drawing board.

Purple Shawl

Purple Shawl
This project has kept me quite busy. I used pure wool for this one. I made it for my friend's upcoming birthday. Although, the pattern was a simple one and a free one at that, I am quite pleased with the results.

Triangle Shawl

Shawl green
This is a shawl I made for myself. I used Highland & Islands Balmoral silk yarn in a lovely green shade.

WIP - Men's Scarf

RS1I decided to make my BIL a scarf for his upcoming birthday. Since he is an executive, I wanted to make a quality scarf. At my LYS I found a beautiful Italian wool. The color I chose will go perfectly with any color coat. It took two balls of yarn to make this scarf. It is garter stitched only. I believe I casted on 20. I am wondering if I should make fringes to finish it up. My DH says I should.

Square 11

HoneyI have been really bad about keeping up with the Learn to Knit Afghan squares. As you can see from the above photo, I am only in the beginning of Square 11. Then today when I went to pick up my needles again, I noticed that our cat had been playing with my knitting.

Oh sure, she may look innocent but she is a naughty kitty. My DH even warned me to put away the knitting last night but I failed to listen to him. But I am looking at the bright side, I will start over and will not make the couple of mistakes I made with this one.
