wavy's gravy

At long last Wavy is done. I like the finished scarf, but it was an awfully dull knit. There was enough pattern checking that I couldn't just space out and knit while reading, but the pattern wasn't intricate or challenging enough to be very stimulating.

Pattern: Wavy, by Sarah Smith
Source: Knitty, Winter 2004
Yarn: Plymouth Suri Merino, Red #2055
Needles: US 7 Brittany Birch straights

Friday was a crappy day, filled with cleaning up cat vomit, getting stuck in a malfunctioning car wash, and dealing with a particularly trying student. Drowning my sorrows in a couple pints of Woodchuck at the pub with friends, then seeing the new version of Casino Royale cheered me up a bit. Daniel Craig plays a pretty good Bond, better than Pierce Brosnan (or Timothy Dalton, for that matter). I was pleased to see less focus on gadgets and gizmos than in the Brosnan 007 movies, but I'm still a bit puzzled as to how playing poker was supposed to help the British government.

Paul helped cheer me up further on Saturday not only by surprising me with these:

but also by rewashing the car, getting groceries, and making a delicious dinner. He's a keeper ;-)

I love the red Wavy! It may have been "dull" to knit, but it sure turned out beautiful!

Jill said...

The Wavy looks great! And I'm sure it will look wonderful when you wear it.

Also love the supercat. Almost makes me want to get a cat...but I don't think a cat would much enjoy living with the two beasts.

Hope you have had a much better day and hope this week is fabulous...or as fabulous as can be. When is your spring break?

Yes, it is boring. But it looks great, I wear mine all the time!

The scarf is beautiful! Good for you for sticking with it. That's the type of pattern that I really want to wear, but often don't have the patience to knit. It will look great on you!

I've made two wavies, so I know the feeling. It looks great.

Leah said...
