I took the Na Craga sleeves out of time out and put them back on the needle. At this time, they are behaving and promising never to be naughty again. There is no sense in posting a picture…I think they are just a wee bit shorter than last weeks photo. But I got them back on the needle in the same spot, both facing the right way. Happy day! I have now put the sleeves down and will revel in my small success.
I have slowed down on progress on Gracie’s Magic Stripe sock. I am close to the toe decreases but it says to knit until “2” less than desired total length.” Two problems: no tape measure and no kids foot. I haven’t been able to locate my tape measure for quite some time. Cameron and Owen enjoying running around the house playing chase/dog with my tape measures. And Gracie’s at school, so I can’t guesstimate. Speaking of guesstimates (is that a word? huh, Grammar Avengers, a little help here!), I can’t do it to save my life. I think it is my dyslexia. Dyslexia also affects my ability to put stitches back on the needle the right or wrong way. I can never remember which is which. Nor can I remember that bigger needle, smaller gauge…smaller needle, bigger gauge–or the other way around. Heck! I can’t tell you my left from my right. Yea, I try that little “L” finger trick–but I am dyslexic and I don’t always remember which way the bottom of the “L” is supposed to go.
But I digress…I stopped by my mom’s house today to take care of a few things. ‘Course I had to look through her stash. I did come home with that fab Rowan Denim last week. Nothing tickled my fancy but I did come across some old pictures piled on top of one of her many piles. 🙂 If I knew how to scan I would have taken a photographic walk down memory lane. I am going to try to figure it out this weekend. It was neat, though, to see how knitting has been interspersed throughout my life. My mom has been knitting for longer than I can remember.
Rachael, at My Glass House, took a pictorial walk down memory lane today on her blog. Go check it out!
