Kim's Belvedere? She is knitting it in yarn that she dyed just for my pattern! Her colors are gorgeous, I am elated, flattered, awed! Kim will be offering the pattern as a kit with the yarn. There is another colorway of equal beauty that will also be available as a kit.
Progress is being made on Sigrid, but I don't have any photos to show you today. Instead I offer Dr. G's Memory Vest blocking. I completed the knitting before Thanksgiving. He is simply waiting for a bit of finishing. It doesn't look like I'll have a chance to do that until after the new year. So the pattern probably won't be available until mid to late January. Sorry its taken so long. My plans are still to contribute all of the sales from this pattern to Alzheimer's and Dementia research.
I leave you with my number one blog model all dressed up for last night's dance. Her sister, "the reader", opted out of the dance. It's just not her thing. I love the fact that these twins of mine are so different, despite their identical DNA. The best part is that they adore each other and cherish their differences - as well as their similarities. I wish I had gotten a shot of the two of them. One all "dolled" up, the other sporting cords, a sweatshirt and over-sized hat.
Flash photography and a cluttered mantle do not make for the best photos, but you get the idea. I can't believe how grown up she looks. I was fun to see her with her friends, all of them easily falling back into their childish, goofy antics despite their formal dress!
