Intentional Dropped Stitches

So my Christmas Cactus was started from clippings from my Grammy's bigger plant. Grammy's plant has been split up among many family members since she passed away. I am glad to have a little piece of her in this plant. She loved her blooming Christmas Cactus's. She had many of them throughout our home. Mine is now in full bloom. Thanks Grammy!


Over the weekend I knit up these Ribby Slippers from the Holiday Interweave Knits. Poo loves them too.


Mom finally sent a picture proving the Cables do indeed fit her! She is going to have my Aunt Joyce take some better pictures soon!

I have finally bit the bullet and am knitting my own Clapotis. I can't wait to drop the first stitch and let it run!

I have a piece of my MIL's purpley plant ( no idea what it is) it s very cool to have somethinig like that after a loved one is gone. Good luck with the clapotis. Don't know if I have the nerve to make one. I have to ask you - Is poo's fur like that naturally or is he shaved like a lion??

We had to have Poo shaved because he was very matted. Poo has had some medical issues this year. Follow this link for more details: http://beancountingknitter.blogspot.com/2008/10/poo-update.html

Love the cabled sweater! And I can't wait to see the first dropped stitch in your Clapotis too. :)
