Where does the time go?

I have no idea where time is going these days. I don't seem to have much to show for the passage of the days.

The scarf I started a couple of weeks ago is progressing.

It is nearly 5 feet long now, so I don't have much more to do. I love the way the pattern shows off the colours.

Meanwhile, the yarn I had ordered arrived and I was able to start my latest knit along shawl, Bonnie's Wish.

This will become the wingspan of the shawl, and the stitches along the edge will become the body of the shawl. I like it so far. Of course, I am already a week behind on the knit along, and I have about 12 more repeats of what you see in the picture! Luckily, this is for my own entertainment, and I don't care when I finish it. It just gives a change from miles of garter stitch for the scarf (or socks).

I had forgotten how much time a puppy takes. Doug is doing very well and becoming a valued member of the staff. I decided his job title is Under-footman. Here is a picture of nap time, as he cuddles with his beloved big sister.


  1. That diagonal scarf is a great pattern - I have made several! What an interesting cable. Hello to the dogs - Doug The Dog is a great little guy!

  2. Doug looks very cosy, and your scarves, blue/purple, lovely shades, my favourites, and a super design. Cheers, Jean.

  3. Love the colours you choose, Kate!

  4. The scarf really seems to benefit from the colour changes in that wool. Love the cables, too, but Doug and Dolly really steal the show. Under-footman! I love it.
