Coat of Many Colours

Jane has started a new project for the store. I asked her to send pictures so that I can share her progress with you. She even wrote out a post for me. I like this idea. Hopefully she will keep taking pictures and writing about the knitting as it grows.
This  
is going to be this.  It is mindless knitting right at the moment. After the initial casting on so many stitches and then making sure it is not twisted..it really is just knitting and purling. Will see how it grows

Melo made it through surgery fine. He came home with an ugly cut up ear and very clean teeth. We left the cone off for a while because he was just lying on the floor sleeping. When he woke up he shook his head which caused his ear to bleed. We put the cone on him which made him very sad. He asked that I don't take a picture-he looks so sad and silly in the cone. We stayed downstairs with him and I had to put my knitting away because he just wanted me to rub his head. Beth is working from home today so that he can relax. Actually, we didn't know how we were going to get him in her truck with the cone on. He has no clue how to move with it on.

Here is my knitting so far.
June 20 is going to be here before I know it. My fingers better start moving quicker if I am going to get this done!

Both projects are very pretty. I love having a mindless knitting project around. I need mindless quite often. ;)

Yummy looking yarn for the knit swirl sweater. Is it noro silk garden?
Some of us in the Montreal Knitting Guild are just finishing up a KAL of Knit Swirl sweaters and despite some glitches (use markers, many markers!) we have enjoyed seeing the variety of yarns and style choices. In fact some of us have already chosen yarn for swirl #2!

Look forward to seeing the progress of this one!

Cheers, Barbie O. in Montreal

The coat is a kit from Mountain Colors. They put together 7 great colour combinations.

Lois-I need mindless all the time. :)
