Meet Sam the Siamese Ram!

Sam is here

He was so much fun to knit. There are a couple of "design elements;" i.e. miscrossed cables. But that makes him totally mine, right?

I could not resist this:

Sam and Runty grazing in my front yard.

Now onto other WIPs

Bill's FLAK vest is moving right along. I hope to finish it by Father's Day, which this year happens to also be our 18th anniversary.

And a little progress on my "Inspired cabled" sweater:

I really like this Mountain Mohair yarn from the Green Mountain Spinnery. It is so soft to the touch and knits up really fabulously. It also comes in a rainbow of colors.

I also got bitten by the sock bug. I took a sock class at my LYS a while ago but have only been knitting plain socks in stockingnette.

I got this handpainted superwash merino from Dave Daniels at Cabin Cove. The pattern is the fluted banister socks.

And since I have never been known to buy just one skein of yarn, I got more handpainted sock yarn...


And this is from J. Knits which I got on Ebay.

Knitting is such a great therapy. However, I beg to differ with whoever says it is cheaper than a therapist!
