Ferals tonight! I'll be taking the Sandness, which has only about 6 rounds of ribbing completed. I woud take a photo, but I'm afraid you would misunderstand. You would see the photo, and you would think, Oh my, that woman is knitting the messiest corrugated rib I have ever seen! But in fact, this is no ordinary corrugated rib. Sandness calls for a 3 x 2 rib with a little pattern in it, a little candycane stripe, and six rounds is not enough for the pattern to really assert itself. So I'll just show you a photo later.

Yesterday, Scott and I took our parents out to dinner on Seattle's waterfront. For car knitting, I took Elfin. (I just don't think of Fair Isle knitting as being good travel knitting.) I have completed the shoulder shaping on three out of four of Elfin's shoulders! And am nearly ready to perform a three-needle bind-off to join the back shoulders to the fronts. (Dinner was very satisfying, both in terms of food, and in terms of enjoying time with our family.)

Ciao for now!

I only wish I could be at Ferals tonight. Was it Place Pigalle? Doug and I (and my friend Craig) had a lovely dinner there a couple of years ago.

Ray's Boathouse.

I've not been to Place Pigalle, but I've heard it's good.
