Knit-along lil'Doggy

I have found Knitting to be a great therapy and wonderful for stress relief ... life is never dull, and more often hectic and crazy :), being able to pull my knitting out of its bag and even do one or two rows really helps me to refocus and recenter.

BearClaw Throw (LapRobe?)

As I mentioned before I am working on an afghan (well more of a lap-robe). To achieve the correct gauge I am using a size 10.5 circular needle, (ha! after working the pattern on #8(US) needles and discovering that it was way smaller than it should have been ;)), and because this is a first 'major' knitting project I am using an acrylic ($4.99/1lb skien, lot-free) worsted-weight yarn in 'taupe'. The pictures show it layed over our office chair, this is the first time even I have really seen it, and by gosh it really IS gorgeous!!!

Here are pictures of the continuing "Bear Claw" Afghan ... only another 30+ rows to go!!!A glimpse of the pattern ... up close and personal ...

I think I will re-do this pattern in the future in a softer yarn, somthing that really flows :D ... and as I've also figured out the pattern repeat I believe that it will be no less than twice (maybe three times?) as large - something really formidable! I am so excited :D ... I have many other projects in mind as well, and will post them as they progress :D - becaue I'm knit-crazy!!!
