Searching for a Pattern and Other Stuff

    Since yesterday, I have been searching for a pattern to knit. I have looked through most of my pattern books, magazines, and patterns I've gotten from free pattern sites, mostly Knitting Pattern Central.

    I've even looked at crochet patterns. Nothing is speaking to me. In the meantime, I will continue working on the shawl. But it's getting  b  o  r  i  n  g. Which could be why I put it down in the first place.

    This morning, when I went to sit for the Cherub, I took my camera and completed Arachno Shawl. She had agreed to model it for me, so I could show you a good photo of what it looks like. This is what I got:

    Apparently, she decided she wasn't into it this morning. I will try to find another model, or maybe just lay it out on the hood of my Jeep. It's really not big enough to suit me, I think if I want to make it "Kim" big, I would have to double the amount of cast on stitches. I'm thinking that doing the cobweb pattern for the border on that many stitches would drive me over the edge.

     So Hubs is finally asleep, I think, after having to work a 5th 12 hour shift in a row. To say he wasn't happy is an understatement. But it's over now, and I get to be with him for two nights before he goes back for his three night week.

    And tomorrow is new tattoo day!! Finally!!


  1. I can't begin to imagine what you would choose for a tattoo. I guess I will stalk your other posts and see if you have had one before and what it was. Since you talk about "new" tattoo, I assume you have done it already at least once.

  2. Well, okay. If I were to get a tattoo, I would TOTALLY choose the Celtic Knot you designed. I like the purple and gold very much but wonder what you will finally decide. It is at least a two part process, right?

  3. I think Cookie is gonna do it all in one shot. It's not gonna be very big. I hope.
