Not a lot of knitting going on…just a whole lot ripping.
I accidentally knit the ribbing for the back of my Everyday Cardigan on a US7 rather than the suggested US6.
My gauge was off on Gracie’s Katia top, so I am knitting it one size smaller and holding my yarn differently. What do you think of those colors? Gracie chose them–she’s not a pink kinda girl.
Sitcom Chic, for Gracie, was way too huge. Again, gauge issues along with size issues. Gracie fits in a ladies XS. The small is going to be too big. So, I need to rework the numbers.
My millends Koigu feather and fan scarf needs to be reworked. I found a pattern I like from the Barbara Walker book.
I didn’t like the foot on Cameron’s Trekking sock. I used two different patterns and the foot was wonky. Cameron didn’t care but I did.
Last, we have Mission Owen. I am trying to unravel the yarn to reskein it using my mother’s knitty noddy but I have no clue how to use it. Anyone have any experience with a knitty noddy?
I got some interesting books at the library today. My reading has suffered as a result of knitting and blogging. They had several new books on autism. Maverick Mind got mixed reviews on Amazon. It is told by a mother who is also a speech language pathologist and audiologist. I also picked up Autism Explaining the Enigma and I picked up 2 others…they usually have such a limited selection. Lest you think it is all serious and no fun, I chose Mea Culpa.
