Writing a pattern

I like this meme because it gives me a handy list of things I want to do. I actually have some lovely yarn that includes dog hair. She is a beautiful Great Pyrennese (sp?) that I met at the 2005 Fall Fiber Festival. And, sitting in my UFO bag, I have a baby sweater waiting to be steeked. I also have that felted clog pattern so many people have made and tons of White Buffalo yarn to make slippers. No cashmere or camel in my stash but I certainly plan to knit both fibers as soon as I can afford.

It IS fun to see all the things we've chanced in our knitting adventures. I have no interest in knitting with wire or in making gloves/mittens - socks are as small a circular object as I care to do, TYVM. I'm glad I taught myself Continental-style knitting, since the very tiny bit of fair isle I've done can go much better using one strand in each hand.

I forgot to say how pretty your latest sweater is, and the color is very good for you.

Cate, Your "have done" list is impressive. You have really explored many styles already! Congrats!

You knit socks like I knit mittens. I have to admit that socks are a better item! Your shawls are lovely!
