Cables and Hulda Holly

Lots of times when Davey wakes up, he plays with his superheroes and animal toys which are lined up along the window in our bedroom.

He greeted me with this little bird yesterday morning. (a lot of times when I wake up, I start with getting caught up on my Words with Friends.  I love that game.  I justify my numerous games with the fact that they are very good for my brain.) So anyway, that’s why I happened to have a camera handy (to take this rather blurry picture).

I started this hat months ago.  I love the yarn.  It’s Shelter by Jared Flood.  The pattern is Habitat by Jared Flood.  I know I have written this before, but he writes the best patterns.

Knitting all those cables makes me feel like such the knitter.

I’m trying to get some of my many unfinished objects completed.  My goal is to finish Habitat this week.

I’m also working my Hulda Holly sweater.  It is slow going.  Laceweight.  Slow.  But it makes for such pretty little stitches.  I love it. It’s curling up like crazy right now, so it was kind of hard to get a decent picture.  I just wanted to photograph how the colors transition at the bottom of the sweater.  It was a little early to ask for the help of my photography assistant – Davey.

I’m working through about 100 shades of gray right now.  Actually I think there are five or six.  I forget at the moment, but that’s another thing I love about this – subtle transitions.

Ok time to get this day going!
