Did I Mention The Knitting?

Because it's pretty much consuming my free time. Mostly due to the fact that I can't do it very well. I'm not really much of an "over achiever" but when I do decide to do something I want to do it WELL!

My mother, bless her soul, tactfully suggested that I might want to "practice my technique" before starting such a complicated and potentially ego-shattering project as a baby blanket. I humored her and discovered that her advice, as usual, was sound. I have managed to complete two swatches of knitted catastrophy so far.

Here is a picture:


Well done, no? Did you note the large-ish hole? How about that area where there appears to be no pattern what-so-ever? See that? Well, scoff away but this particular piece of calamity happens to be perfectly suitable for a pony's cape. Observe:


I'd say that's a silver lining - especially for CoCo the pony!

I have many, many crocheted pony capes sitting around my house. I start one, get bored, forget I started it, and then start another...

It's always the ponies that get the Couture.

I must say... you're disaster is my masterpiece. I'm just in awe that you can even knit.
