Wow! You are almost finished!! I can't wait to see it put together!

Yeah, I sort of gave up on swatching too, I never end up with the same gauge as the swatch adn I figure I would rather start the piece and have to frog than waste my time knitting a four inch square that is forever going to remain a useless 4 inch square.

Hope you are dealing with the heat! I think you are sending that our way towards the middle of the week :)


yep - gauge swatches suck. could all be put together for a patchwork blankie - maybe? just a thought - in case you do ever decide to gauge :)
your rosamunde is looking great! wishing you much knitting time :)

Lisa in Oregon

WOWZA!! loving rosamunde, I tell you...great work, as always. :)


What you have a head?!?! And a cat?!?! I though your cat was black? But wait you are the one always in black. And you really do have a face! And don't worry about orange yarn, I am trading it for aqua yarn.


Wooo I can't wait to see Rosamunde finished. I love the pattern and color! And Bob looks great on you!


Exactly my feelings, Dani. I'm a pretty good guesser when I match needles & yarn so I don't have to frog that much. Sure beats messing around with swatches!

Thanks Rebecca & Lisa! I'm loving Rosamunde too. I don't understand why it's taken me so long to knit it. Some weird mental block, I suppose.

Cool, Mia - aqua beats orange any day!

Thanks, Tifff - Sometimes you just can't beat a classic, understated pattern. It's good for me 'cause I tend to be over the top sometimes!


Spotlight is one of my favorites too - a really, REALLY nice cotton yarn :)

Looking forward to seeing Rosamunde in all her glory.

Your "portrait" with Arnold is cute as hell :)


I just got a new kitten and his face markings look incredibly similar to Arnold's. They both have those 2 stripes coming from their eyes across their cheeks. Perhaps Arthur has been visiting some female cats near Austin?!? :-)
