I finished the Turn A Square. I like it. It’s cute. I had seen a finished version in my local yarn shop and it seemed huge, so I actually left out the increases and it worked out well. I like the square top.
This past Saturday, I wound the unwound skeins of my teeny-tiny stash. I’m glad my mom has a yarn swift. It really turns out a nice ball of yarn. I have two skeins of lovely Koigu that I’m going to use for my next project; a pair of Turkish Bed Socks. This pattern is a few years old, but I have wanted try knitting them for a while.
The ducklings and I tried our hands at using modeling clay yesterday. We enjoyed the medium very much, but as our pieces dry they seem to be breaking very easily. That is a little disappointing. I am getting more and more use out of Learning about the World through Modeling by Arthur Auer. I’m glad I have it as a reference.
Pintail’s “Dead Horse”
Sweet little Wigeon who told me she made a train.
My Minotaur which received a lot of guff for having well-formed buttocks.
Thanks for dropping by the pond today! I look forward to seeing what other projects abound.

Teal, my darling fifth grader, has become quite the knitter. She learned to purl just this year, yet her stockinette is beautiful! Off her needles recently is the Quick and Easy Owl. For the longest while she complained that she did not like knitting. It’s so fun to see her enjoying it as her skills advance.
Granny has also been showering Wigeon with some darling new knitted sets! The Cool Wool hat, cowl and mittens really couldn’t be any cooler. They are darling and so soft in a chunky alpaca blend. She also knitted the sweetest “Classic Cable” and hat from Top Down for Toddlers. Wigeon insists on wearing sweater and hat as a set all day long!
I have just begun the Turn A Square hat for Mr. Mallard. I’m knitting it with Cascade 220 and self-striping Noro Silk Garden. I was happy to have my color changes look better than in Pintail’s London Beanie with the “jogless jog” the Turn A Square recommends.
What’s on your needles? Thanks for taking the time to visit today!
