Merope cowl was an extra pattern of Romi Hill's ebook 7 small shawls to knit: Year One. I've made it a while ago. It's made with Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport. The red is not THAT searing at all. It's more like the last photo, actually more like blood red. It's a little tight for my neck. I can't stand turtle necks, or other tight things, so I'm hoping that DD Hannah will like it, and wear it. This was a quick, and fun knit. I might make it with worsted weight yarn again, to fit a little bit more relaxed around my throat.

I'm the worst pancake flipper of all times! But that didn't mess with the taste at all. I've read about pumpkin pancakes here at TobyKnits, and had to give them a try. I did use a real egg though, and just butter and Maple syrup. I added a dash of cinnamon as well. I've made it three!!! times since I first tried it (probably because now I've got an open can of pp filling to use up too), and I'm still not tired of it.
Last week I've finished another test knit for Stephen West. That's the left over yarn. It's Wandering Cat Yarns Jungle Cat, a Bamboo blend yarn. There would have been nothing left over at all, but I decided to do the bind off with a contrasting color. I think the pattern will be released at the end of this month, so no other pictures until then.
I took these pictures back in February! The sofa is long gone by now. There was always something else to show you.
Nom, nom, nom!
Happy was there first, enjoying his bone, when Denny parked himself right beside him, and started chewing a bone of his own. Sadly that never happens anymore.
