Oh, this? Yes, I just whipped it up over the weekend! ...What do you mean, "Where's the rest of it?"
Now I am starting a new Thing. I am using Lion Brand yarn again, this time a fuzzy kinked pink yarn called, if I remember correctly, "Cotton Candy." (A child helpfully removed all the paper wrappings from my yarns for me.) I cast on 50 stitches; my plan is to make a wider, shorter Thing than last time. When I have finished it, I want to try a baby hat.
2. Virginia Ruth wanted to see some samples of Rob's knitting. My mother-in-law taught him when she was here a few weeks ago.
The one on the left is Rob thinking he could maybe make a sweater for a stuffed animal by knitting two sweater shapes and attaching them together. On the right is him practicing making stripes.
My mother-in-law taught him to cast on and bind off, and he made these Tetris shapes later that night when he was supposed to be sleeping. My mother-in-law thought this was meh. Paul and I thought it was BRILLIANT. He has knitting and binding off IN THE SAME ROW!
It was hard to take a picture of this, but it's a side view of a square of knitting with a rectangular flap coming out of the middle. Rob wanted to see if that would work. Mother-in-law said that wasn't really the way it was supposed to work. Paul and I thought it was BRILLIANT.
This is Rob's "sampler scarf"---he did a little of all the stitches he knew how to do, so there's some knitting and some purling and some cabling and whatever else he knows. It's about 4 inches wide on average.
