family affair

... a new addition ... in chartreuse cotton, crocheted with a C hook. one must ask, what is a cow doing with all these chickens?

and how is life on the rest of the knitting front? well ... i swatched today.

newport swatch

that's classic elite's newport cotton. it's discontinued. it's an aran wt. cotton, with a recommended gauge of 4 sts/inch on size 9 needles. i did get gauge, when i tugged on it a little. i'm not sure what this might become, as i do have a lot of it. i think i was dreaming last night of crocheting it up into a bunch of different squares ... all different patterns in the same red cotton.

i am still knitting along on icarus too. i only work on it when my head feels clear, as each row is taking me at least 13 minutes to work across.

whatever the cotton becomes, it will be beautiful! I love that color ;)

and the whole barnyard is just adorable! I eagerly await to see the next one!
