A Kate for my Kitten ...

Unfortunately I didn't go to see the Grandkids yesterday [Saturday -Blogger wouldn't let me post when I wanted to on Sunday.] due to the threat of flooding rains. I really hate driving Route 95 or 16 in heavy rain, so I stayed home. Hopefully I'll make it up there in 2 weeks. This next weekend we have other plans, so it'll be a delay of 2 weeks for Jayden to model the Pinwheel Sweater I made for her. [sigh]

But see what else I made for her to go along with the sweater. Kate from Knitty.com! I used yarn left over from the sweater ...



and why did I give her stripped pant legs? Because this is how much cranberry colored yarn I had left after finishing ...










Just as funny looking as the designer's don't you think? Well maybe even funnier looking, LOL but what does a baby care, huh? At least it's soft!






p.s. I heard from Wren Ross and she gave me a link to
these two podcasts that interviewed Wren: Good
knitting listening... WHIT LARSON PODCAST <http://www.about-time.us/ >
and
** "It's a Purl, Man" **
< http://www.itsapurlman.com/Podcasts/itsapurlman-2006-01-010.mp3>

and more ...

Check 'em out okay?! ....

I've also ordered the book Changing Patterns: Discovering the Fabric of Your Creativity by Wren Ross & Daena Giardella.

It sounded really interesting and I need to check-it-out! That's right I NEED it ... it's a book ... one to include in my expanding "stitching" library ... Did someone say I had too many book? Well ... I don't .... yet! No, no REALLY!!

She's so cute! I love the color combination, and you did a great job with the face.

I think we need to see some pics of those books. Maybe start a "Show us your Pattern Stash/2006"or something like that.
The kitty looks great.

Well Rhonda if you take a look here ... http://del.icio.us/stitchingnut and subtract the 37 free pattern links, you've got an idea of what I'm talking about. LOL, maybe you're right ... let's do a "Show us you Pattern Stash 2006" ... Anyone game? We could pick a day to show our stuff!

Lovin' that um, kitty? doggie? alien? Kate! I'll bet it is a great huggable for that baby!

I'm slow to catch up -- even with my favourite people, sorry!! -- but really need to tell you that I LOVE this sweater and matching Kate! I was indifferent to the pinwheel sweater pattern until now...NOW...hmmm...maybe one of those babies could use one... :)

Hope all is well with you!

Stay cool!
