Argyle


I'm learning something new.  Proof that old dogs can learn new tricks........  I told my niece forever ago that I'd knit something for her baby.  Her baby is graduating from high school now so I figure I ought to get on it.

Kidding.  But still.  Months have gone by.  If I don't hurry my nieces baby will be grown out of this little sweater vest I'm making and I'll have to cut it up and make socks out of it or something.


Argyle it is called.  Who comes up with a name like argyle?  It sounds like a gargoyle!  Do gargoyles wear argyle I wonder..............

  3. What a cool trick to learn! I'm hoping I want to finish knitting my sweater now that it is cooling off, but not really feeling it yet.
    I don't think gargoyles in argyles would be too scary...aren't gargoyles supposed to be scary?

    1. Knitting seems to be more of a winter thing...... with air conditioning it helps.

      I dunno........ if I saw a gargoyle wearing argyle... I might be creeped out.

  5. Argyle is SCOTTISH you silly. There's a town in Scotland - or a county or something. And everybody plays golf there and wears argyle vests and socks and things. All the time. Even to bed. It has nothing to do with gargoyles, which are architectural elements that are able, at the same time, to direct storm water and frighten away demons. We don't have any on our house, but we probably should. And I don't know how you are doing that, making that little one color run through those diamonds the way you are. Show off.

    1. Argyle jammies and undies. Fancy that! That IS scarier than gargoyles.

      We don't have gargoyles on our houses because we don't get enough rain to warrant anything directing our spouts!

  7. Now I want gargoyles. And argyle. I mean, I don't want to knit anything argyle, because I am nowhere near as talented as you. But I still want an argyle something. (But not an argyle gargoyle.) Would this be the cuttiting that Levi was talking about?

    1. No argyle gargoyle? Where is your sense of adventure? Personally.... I think the farm needs one right on the corner of your magical farm house. :D

      Yes, it would seem you and I have an issue with cuttiting.
