swatches and dishclothes
|Jacob Romney Aran swatch|
|Jacob Romney Gansey swatch|
So I knit a dishcloth.
And 2 swatches. First I knit the gansey swatch and realized that any kind of pattern was going to disappear into the color variation. So I over plied the 2-ply and cabled the yarn, and knitted a simple rope cable, which doesn't show much better.
More thinking will be required.

|Water Garden Socks|
|Water for Elephants|
I really liked the book Water for Elephants So when my friend Miriam pointed out the sock pattern I jumped on that with both feet. (so to speak)
And here is part of the leg of the first one. See the elephant down there in the left lower corner.
these are great fun.
Busy week this week, family reunion yesterday.
I get to visit Anna's classroom on Monday.
Then Odd Tuesday.
Then more dental surgery on Thursday.

Also wound the 100 yd skein of jacob/romney to swatch as a 2 ply and then cable and swatch as a 4 ply.
The fun never ends around here.
I am trying to keep myself busy so I will stay away from the spinning wheel until the strained muscle in my back heals.

Knitting with Kindles
But if you download and install a pdf converter. I use: K2pdfopt so after running the electronic copy of the pattern below through the program I up-load it to dropbox and open it on the Kindle and it is the correct size for use. I will go make socks now.

|East side window|
This is the red bedroom. The curtain material has a very art deco feel which I like against the dark red of the walls. These were finished a while back but I thought I would show then since I had shown all the rest.
Only one more bedroom and the office left.
