Much Kaffe goodness



They are done. Finished. Kaput. The Kaffe Fassett Design Line by Regia - this happens to be Landscape Fog #4253 and I must say, it was nice to knit with.

I knit my socks from the toe up on dpns and I can tell I need to pay attention more. I see ladders in these socks and it drives me nuts. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure why - maybe I am not tightening enough when moving from dpn to dpn? I am a tight knitter anyway so I never thought I would have this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks. I do like this yarn. And the colorways - that goes without saying. See for yourself...

Niece and I went to the Coca-Cola museum yesterday. We have been before but she wanted to go again. They just moved it to across from the GA aquarium a couple of months ago. It was so flippin' hot - we took the train down there so had to walk about 20 minutes (actually was longer for us since I have no sense of direction and she's only 11 and no help whatsoever). A fun time though. Pictures later.

I leave you with Wooly Bully - my cat who is often described as a "bowling ball with legs". He is a sweetheart, has the greenest eyes and is tipping the scales at approx. 22#. He has food issues. Hates his bowl empty. Will hunt you down wherever you are in the house to let you know it too...

Love your cat!! It is my dog that has food issues here. She thinks that if Mommy has food she need at least half of it. LOL
Order sock club yarn today. Are you out of August? Kept meaning to order but if you check my blog you will understand what happened.

I love the Kaffe socks! He has such a wonderful color sense.

I knit my socks on DPNs and to avoid the ladder effect where I cjhange needles, I knit two or three stitches from the next needle every time I finish a needle. That way the lose stitch moves so there isn't a gap. On Wendyknits someone suggested knitting the the second stitch on the needle extra tightly when using 2 circulars, but it ought to also work on DPNs.
