Good Morning! It was an early morning for me, earlier than I had planned. Feline Overlord had a cunning planning and it went something like this:
Step 1) Deposit the crinkle-foil-ball toy on the pillow next to Food Woman.
Step 2) Wait for her to roll over and have it smush into her face.
Step 3) Watch her leap straight up and shout a few cuss words.
Step 4) Meow to let her know that I’d like a nice game of chase-the-crinkle-foil-ball.
Well, the game of chase-the-crinkle-foil-ball didn’t happen but it did start my day off pretty early. That’s okay. I’m accustomed to her tortures. Also, I had a Trickery to block! Its done! It looks great!
But I get ahead on myself. I did make one last video for our Trickery Knit-a-Long.
Binding Off A Trickery
Okay, now you are caught up.
After cat food and coffee, I went to work on blocking. Feline Overlord helped.
You may recall, this Trickery is going to live at The Sated Sheep. It will sit around on display looking gorgeous and sell yarn and hopefully *cough* my pattern to many a knitter. The yarn I used was provided by Bronotta Yarns and its her Only One – Silk in Spruce and EVOO. (That stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I didn’t get that at first and had to ask.) The yarn is wonderful, very easy to work with. Its a single ply in light fingering weight and its 70% merino, 30% silk. The silk gives the yarn a beautiful glow and I’m not sure the pictures do it justice.
This Trickery will be dried soon and then it will be on its way to The Sated Sheep! I just have to get it away from you-know-who. She seems to think this Trickery is her new blanket.
Guess again fur ball.

Yay! And I love the coupon code 🙂 I always try to stay up and finish my shawls, but in the end they tend to take me 6 hours to BO properly and sometimes I just can’t last that long… Not doing anything like that right now though (thank the gods).
Yes. I have misjudged the time requirements many-a-evening and stayed up toooooo late only to not finish at all.
Nice job Jenn. I am coming along slowly….! Picture in a day or two.
Great! Looking forward to it.
So I’m not the only one who thinks BO’s are hard on the hands.
Good. I thought not.
Bind Off are tedious. Sigh. But I’m highly motivated to do them and finish off. 🙂
So glad it’s done. I will have to go see it in person even though I have seen it before. I would like to visit it at the saTed sheep.
Yep. Done is done. Now I need to find my next big thing!
Cute coupon code! And pretty shawl
Thanks! As for the coupon code, I crack myself up. lol
