So, this kind of snow-plow knitting was perfect for the week. I forged ahead with determination and have started the sleeves. It's really simple stuff. I am still implementing my one lesson learned. Count the rows. Even if it's only stocking stitch forever. I have fudged too many seams in my life and this really changes that scenario. Tip of the week for you.
Actually, what I'm heading for with all this plain knitting is the lace part. Yes, of course, that's what has my attention in this pattern. It's a very cool lace insert knit in the round. I just can't wait to get there. Who needs carrots when there's lace?
And I just might finish my pink cardi. I dumped jars of buttons on cookie sheets and sifted through
I apologize for the fuzzy blue photo. It was taken in a hurry because Iwas about to run off to participate in our annual community park clean up. We get to pull invasive species, plant the good stuff and generally clean up anything that shouldn't be there. This is a park I'm not familiar with so it should be fun. We've had several days of sunshine and it is just typical that it is raining this morning. My gloves are rubberized!
Because Blogger took so long to upload the photos, I had to delay the posting. Now I'm back from my morning in the park. I've never been so wet in all my life! We pulled lamium from the ground for three hours. People tip their old hanging baskets into the woods and the lamium takes root. It's a groundcover so it spreads happily. The morale of the story is: DON'T! It took a team of us all morning to clear out three good-sized patches of the stuff.
