Sam update

Sam has a tail now.

Another week and Sam now has a tail.

I haven't worked much on him this past week. I have been busy cleaning up the yard, getting the garden areas ready and sneezing from all the pollen. It rained last night so that should wash some of the pollen away.

Here is another of Sam's picture. This one in profile.

Meanwhile I finished the sleeves on my denim vest, took them to the local dry cleaner to have the sleeves sewn on the vest, and here it is.

The sleeves are knitted in Prism Wild Stuff Denim. Prism is the only "novelty" yarn I splurge on!

I also finished a summer vest.

This one is a variation of the honeycomb class I took at my LYS last year. It is done in Colinette Giotto and Rowan Summer Tweed.

And this last picture is of a FLAK (Follow the leader Aran sweater knitalong) saddle for my husband. I finally settled on the yarn from Black Water Abbey. The color is Bracken.

In all, quite a productive week.

Sam is growing

My daffodils are blooming.

And my Sam is growing. He is now on two circular needles along his body and two dpns under his chin and on his tail end. I am having a lot of fun "feeding" him more yarn.

Here is a picture of an entrelac shawl I am making for a very dear friend who will be undergoing chemotherapy next month. The pattern is from the Scarf Style book.

The shawl is knitted with Noro Silk Garden. The colors are really gorgeous.

Sam and the shawl.

Stay tuned.

Sam the Ram

The is Runty the Cat. He is giving me a raspberry for not doing the picture sequencing right. This is my first attempt at blogging so please bear with me.

Here is Sam the Ram in progress:

Sam in Progress: the Head..

Sam's head with his XO spine.
Sam and a little of his neck.

Sam is being knitted in Knitpicks Wool of the Andes. His head is chestnut brown and the body natural color. He is done on dpns 4.

More pics later.
