Have you ever completely freaked yourself out mentally for no reason? It is well past midnight and I just walked my dog. Because I frequently get home really late from the theatre, walking the dog after midnight is a common occurrence. I have never felt nervous or uncomfortable walking her at this hour. My neighborhood is relatively safe.

But for some reason, I was really freaked out tonight. I felt like someone or something was going to jump out of the dark at me! So strange!

And of course, if someone did attack me - The Poodle would be absolutely no help. If she actually noticed that I was being attacked (she is very deaf and partially blind), the best she could do to protect me would be to gum my attacker. Dog with no teeth. Yeah, not so scary!

But anyways... on to the knitting!

I ripped back the Faux Russian Stole and tried again:

Much better!

I really wish I had more time to work on this. I love knitting it. I used to be able to knit during my shows at night, but with our current show - it is impossible. I'm just too busy.

I did find out via Ravelry (seriously, how did we ever live without Ravelry??) that there is some errata to this pattern. I already looked it up - now I just have to remember to implement the corrections!

The other day, I got my February "Skein of the Month" package from Webs.

February yarn of the month package

The skein is Fiesta Swoon. It's so pretty. It's a merino/silk blend. The color in the picture isn't very true. It's more pinky, fuchsia like. I was kind of amused that most of the people who have stashed it on Ravelry got it from the Skein of the Month club giveaway. I was looking for patterns to knit with this yarn, but only one person has posted anything on Ravelry with a project.

The package also included a pattern for Waterfall Scarf. I'm not really crazy about the pattern and will most likely never make it. So, if anyone wants this pattern - speak up and I will happily send it to you! The pattern originally appeared in the book 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders.

I love the yarn, but I particularly like the extra item sent in the package.

Cutie sheep magnets!

They are currently attached to my bedside lamp shade, as this is the only metal thing in my room that will allow for magnets!

Well, happy March everyone. I'm going to go change my calendars and go to bed!

I love how your shawl is coming out!

I have those freak out moments too - and my dogs may be able to lick someone to death!

What yarn are you using for the shawl and is it true to color in the pics? It's pretty!

Occasionally (before they started locking the laundry room at 9:00p), I'd get freaked out walking back and forth from the laundry room at night! Some nights just don't feel right, I guess. Glad you stayed safe!
