Boring eh?

Santa as of 9/21/06

Well tough, I have honestly worked only on this Santa the past week.
I am knitting for my class, but since I actually started the sweater I am attempting to make teachers idea not mine, i wanted to do a nice scarf.......I can only do about 300 stitches (2 rows) before I am tired of concentrating so hard. Right know I am ribbing (knit 2 purl 2) the bottom of the back of the sweater. I have an inch done with another to go.

the moral is when I am done with the knitting I move on to santa., I finished the shadow of his cloak (the checkerboard) and found a nice single row of 814 to divide the wolf from the cloak. So I will be working on the wolf till he is done (maybe by Oct 4/5). There are about 6 shades of white to grey to work with, and a bit of confetti action going on here, but it was the same with all the other animals and he is the LAST one. Mom mentioned the other day that she remembers when I bought this pattern, and thinks it was either during college or right after, so that definately dates this WIP a bit further back than I had thought, into the 11 year range, sigh IT WILL NOT BE 12 years!

Good luck with those whites and greys. This project is going to be a stunner.
