Stash was not enhanced this week. I added no yarn and really only felt tempted by patterns. But I held strong and avoided the lure. OK, so I am just waiting until March hits so it won’t count against my February total!
Charity Hat knitting began on Saturday while we were at a college basketball game. Both of the current knit projects were at too dicey a point to take with me. Kelsey is lace and the other has a chevron knit/purl pattern that I keep messing up. Woodstove Season has raglan increases going on while you knit the back with a texture. Hard to keep it all going. So neither were good for a basketball game. I took the ever dependable Valley DK yarn from WEBS for a baby hat.
This week’s pattern is Siksak. I want to use up the bits and bobs of Valley DK I have, so thought this would be a great pattern. But maybe not a great pattern to take to a game. I kept losing my place. I used 64 sts so I had x4 for the repeat. Then I will decrease per 8 sts for the crown. I fear I will never run out of this yarn! I have more than a skein of white, half a skein light blue, and various amounts of blue, red, and teal. When you are only using 50-60 yards a hat it lasts for a long time.
The next few weeks we are sitting my sister’s Bichpo. 3 dogs in the house are just a riot some days. And then others it’s just a scream! Night time with 3 dogs and 2 adults in a queen size bed are a trial. I think Hubster and I are going to lose this battle. But at least the dogs will be comfy. If one is on the furniture, all must be on the furniture. This is 3 dogs and 1 person spread over 2 chairs. One dog is kind of perched between the two. LOL. I fear my knitting is going to suffer greatly with 3 dogs all trying to sit in my chair with me! Fingers crossed knitting does happen.
