Sheep Blocking

Progress is actually being made! Yesterday I got the Shy Sheep Vest blocking

Today I sewed in ends, joined the shoulders with a 3 needle bind-off, and purchased buttons. We're heading out tomorrow morning on a little mini-vacation so I likely won't have a chance to work on it again until the weekend.

Tonight I need to pick out my travel project(s) between doing laundry and packing a small suitcase. Will it be a sweater? Socks? A teddy bear?

Yes. Probably all three.

I love the sheep! Was that from the 'Shadow Knitting' book?

"Yes. Probably all three."

Isn't that how it's supposed to be? That's the way it always works for me.

Caroline, the Shy Sheep Vest is a pattern I purchased directly from Mabel Corlett, the designer. She can be contacted at: mabel@woolroom.on.ca

Leisel, at the moment my knitting projects are taking up more room than my clothing. I couldn't possibly knit it all in the two or three days I'll be gone but....well....a person should always be prepared for emergencies.
