Don’t ever stop knitting in the middle of a row of lace. Unless that row happens to be the one with the life line – you just might be in for a world of pain. I looked at that UFO which has been sitting on the needles for several months now. I could not tell where I was in the pattern – the number of stitches in the row gave me a couple of possibilites.
where was I?
The end result was that I decided to do this –
ready to go
It was such fun that I decided to be honest about the following –
If you are on a self-hosted blog, WordPress just released version 2.6. I had been using one of the test trunks for a while and really like the new short cut feature that puts the categories back where I want them on the write page. If I can just get my sidebar unscrewed, I will be a completely happy camper.
When I decided that the sidebars were taking up too much of the page and went back to a single one, some of the widget fields got locked and the save button decided to not work anymore. Go figure, it didn’t go away with the update. If you were wondering why I had so much stuff down at the bottom, you now have your answer.
Also in that vein – I am headed to Birmingham tomorrow for WordCampUK. Maybe one of the smart coders there can help me figure it out
Candle Flame Scarf
This is where I am with seven repeats and and maybe 10 meters of yarn remaining.
Completed two halves
the catch is, I am not quite sure that I don’t like the reverse side better than what is supposed to be the right side.
Reverse Side Flames
the proper front side on top
I went ahead and unraveled the seed stitch from the sides of the Sakiori Vest.
There isn’t enough yarn to do complete it. Of course, once I had frogged both sides I could take a good look at the yarn. I think I just might have a couple more knurls of the source roving hiding in an upper cupboard in Germany. Since I will be back home one night next weekend, rather than look for an alternative maybe I will just be able to spin some more. The vest really doesn’t work without the underarm panels and I don’t have enough on hand to even finish the neck, let alone the sides.
I have only 16 rows to go on the back of the Walk-in-the-Woods. There is obviously enough of the reds to finish, but I am rapidly running out of gray yarn. Hopefully I have some more tucked away some where, otherwise, I am going to have to frog the completed front in order for the two to match. Ugh.
Back almost completed
Double Share – completed. Very satisfactory ending. Now to load the rest of 7th Son (books 1 & 2) onto the MP3 player for my trip.
