Well it looks like I will be having a fling after all. This Debbie Bliss simple garter stitch cardigan is really easy to knit. I love the colors so I am enjoying knitting it. And, get this, the instructions say to knit the fronts and back in one piece! I can’t believe it. Debbie Bliss is notorious for flat knitting when it can be easily knit in the round. I am especially pleased ’cause I don’t think I would have liked to seam garter stitch. And the Tahki Cotton Classic…ooh, I think I am in love. After attempting to knit with the Patons Grace–which felt like shoelaces–this is heaven.
Argh. I just lost part of my post and I forgot what I was saying. I know I mentioned something about short term memory issues. Oh. The pattern called for an additional 3 colors. I had to wing it in MA. Thank goodness I did. There are a lot of ends to run through. Argh again. I wanted to do a pop up but it is coming out humongous! So here are the ends.
I have been working on squares for the Afghans for Afghanalong. I really want to try one of those log cabin squares. And I joined the Sitcom Chic Redux at Bagatell’s. I don’t think my Peace Fleece is ever coming. Have I said how disappointed I am with my experience at Camilla Valley Farm? I placed my order on 3/13. And it is taking great strength not to join the Broadripple Sock along. I have some yellow Fixation in mind for that and I bought some of the similar yarn at Elann.
On a non-knitting related note, Cameron, Gracie and I saw Scooby Doo 2. Although it got poor reviews, Cameron and Gracie loved it. (They love any movie). I laughed more than I expected. Perhaps it was getting to the movie theater without a wallet and having to go back home and go again. I felt like I was stuck in the movie Groundhog Day as I had forgotten my cell phone earlier. While Cameron was kind enough to remind me I shouldn’t use my phone at the movie, Owen was at school and I had to be accessible to his teachers. Today, we are going to Owens school for my parent training. Cameron and Gracie will be peer models and we are having a Spring Party (I am class mom). Pizza and fun. Yippee!
