I’m way past ready to finish up the Octopus pattern for my test knitters. If only the sun would come out so I can take a decent picture of all these legs getting put together.

I’m working on an Elephant in the meantime and I though I was going to run out of yarn but I knit real fast and didn’t.


I finished a rooster.

Every time I knit a chicken, I think about how I could really improve that pattern. It was my very first complicated toy pattern and I do so many things differently now. Maybe I’ll spruce it up one of these days.

Also, I am contemplating a Four Seasons Swap series. We are finishing up winter…so I’m thinking of spring ideas. Is this intriguing for anyone?

We’ll have a a little bit of a swap round-up towards the end of the week. A couple boxes experienced weather delays so I want to give them a little time to catch up to their recipients. I really want to hear about what book/movie folks sent! Security is a nice long ‘To Read’ list. Don’t tell me yet – wait for the round up!

    This was my first swap and it was so fun. I got a lovely book and pattern and fun yarn and fiber and lots of other goodies. I’m already getting ready for the next one. 🙂

    My package was delivered last Wednesday. I am waiting for mine and do not expect it today with 8 to 10 inches of snow expected!
    Sign me up for your next swap, as I really enjoy them. I appreciate the time you and Micheal take to do it, and the additional time for those with allergies!
    I love the roster, it reminds me of chicken run, the movie, that I found funny!

    My experience with the Swap of Discontent was very positive. I just hope that my recipient was pleased with my swap package.

    I would most likely be interested in doing something like this again.

    I have missed the last few DishragTag swaps, and did not know about the Swap of Discontent….would LURVE to cast off my current work nonsense and participate!!!

    I’m about to knit a chicken for myself. I’m curious to find out what changes you would make.
