Sunday's seem to be for blogging and catching up on all kinds of things...hanging out on Facebook (my newest time suck), doing the laundry, knitting......

Current projects on the needles:

Kingscot. That is the name of the pattern, however it is spelled incorrectly. It should be Kingscote. The designer Norah Gaughan realized after it was published the spelling was wrong. But who really cares about that minor detail. The pattern is lovely..

The yarn: Berroco Ultra Merino DK Purchased from WEBS

The Color: Teaberry

The Needles: US Size 6 and US Size 4.

I was a little side tracked last week with making myself another pair of felted slippers. These took a couple of days to whip out. I have a front loading washer so it makes the felting process really hard to control. I am going to put them through one more time to shrink them just a bit more. I don't like being able to see the knit stitches and they're just a bit too big.
