Before I forget – is there anyone out there from Vancouver? We head that way on Saturday [Conference time] and I am hoping to get in a couple of yarn stores or see if anyone is willing to have me treat them to tea or coffee.
Blowing up the pattern with the xerox helped. Should I admit my eyes are getting older? Or that knitting sometimes is neither the right focal length for either my distance or the bifocal portion of my lenses? Unlike stockinette – this was more like 10 rows in a couple of hours. Might have something to do with a dropped stitch or two, but I would rather not talk about the fun of chasing a lost
pearlpurl down a number of rows. This is a full repeat on the front: which means a double repeat on the back and x6 on the side panels. I think it looks ok.
See what came in the mail today from Ann K
Isn’t it such fun? It was a prize from her blog and I was a random winner. I now who is going to be marking the center of Cottonwood when I get it back on the needles.
The Blue and Grey Stripes are done.
And I am making progress on the Grasshopper, only the leg left on the second sock. So I need to choose my next project so that I am not completely insane. A pair of Monkey’s perhaps?
