Knitting Does Actually Happen Around Here

Yes, I do actually knit. Want proof? Okay, I was in my LYS a while back, when it was too hot here to even think about winter, and I was sucked into a vortex by this yarn. Deciding on a color was hard but I picked this one. I also purchased this book because I loved the patterns. I got pulled further into the vortex by Foxtail and Millet, but eventually made my way out to settle on Meadow, minus that belt and the belt loops. At my age you don't need ANY help letting people know where your waist is or isn't.....

Here is the ribbing at row 20:



I'm not sure if you can see the beautiful stitch markers, but trust me, they are there and I need to thank Megan for them. They were part of my goodies from her in the first SITM KAL.

I should be able to get the last two rows of ribbing done today as well as switching to the body. I am in the process of converting the entire pattern from flat pieces that needed to be assembled....YUK...to being totally knitted in the round, so it is a little slower than I would like. Thank goodness that my hairdresser knows how to camouflage the grey....

Lisa - thanks for the comment on my blog. The color ... well, I don't remember exactly, but it's either # 7816, 9468, or 8891. Just a really pretty bright blue.
