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!

I love your Sam - he's really adorable.

I adore your ram - it looks nice with all the cables. Your sock yarns look so makes me want to buy some new yarns too.

That Sam is fantastic! I've seen them around and in person. *sigh* If only I could read patterns. lol
And I love the colors of your yarn stash. It's all so colorful.

Sam the ram is so cute. Lovely new yarn and can't wait to see your St. Brigid yarn.
