Not that it matters that you stop here today, I got nothing! Oh, I have done some knitting, But when you rip out the 350 sts you cast on, 3 times!!!! Or was it 2? I can’t remember since I have lost all ability to function right now, you tend to not have any progress to show. Who knew? Lack of sleep from babysitting a 6 week old puppy for one night and most of the next day messed me up. Exhausted! And now I will spend today continuing the clean up of rugs and carpets from the messes the little butt made. Seems there might be an intestinal issue for the poor mite. So I told her momma, sorry, but I am too busy for that kind of care.
So, between puppy sitting and ripping out I am falling behind. But then I remind myself, Enough! I have until May to finish her cowl, it isn’t being made for warmth, more as a decoration. But what about all that baby knitting!!! Enough. The first baby gift is needed in 2-1/2 weeks, you have time to knit a baby vest. But, I want to cast on Miss Dashwood for me!!! Enough! You have days and weeks ahead to start the shawl. Whew, I am even more exhausted from arguing with myself.
I am trying to use two yarns to make a cowl for one of DG’s teachers. I thought linen stitch. Nah, too small a needle the first time. OK, a slip stitch with yarn in the back on 2 size larger needle. Nah, too tight of a stitch pattern, so the moving of 350 sts per row was taking forever! So ripped it too. OK, I guess it’s only been twice. Now I will cast on a 3rd time and this time use the Knit 1 below pattern. I know what kind of fabric I can get with that and the size needle I want to use.
Butterbeer from Forbidden Woolery and Brown from Koigu. A sport and a fingering, but I am thinking it won’t really matter.
