ahhhh fall!

OK, so it might not be the real fall, but it sure is much cooler outside. I am convinced that my 40+ years of living in Wisconsin have made me more attuned to warm than cold. I hate being too hot. There's only so much clothing I can take off before offending the public. I can always put more on though.

The knitting is going well. I snagged a few coveted yarns at stitches: A skein of Kauni and a cone of Habu textiles silk/stainless steel. Stainless steel you ask? yes. It's a very thin yarn and I am knitting it on size 2 needles. I'll have to post pictures when I am finished with it.

I had to knit another firefly to work out details in the chart.

Tigger is modeling the firefly, knitted in one skein of Crazy Zauberball I got in a trade. I've ironed out the details, I'm polishing up the charts and I should be releasing the pattern to the knitting public next week. I do hope it goes well...
