Oh, it is cold and kind of icky today. Poor Gracie has a field trip to Splish Splash and they are calling for scattered thunderstorms. The 4th graders had all their field trips held till the end of the year so they could focus all of their attention on standardized exams. I told her we would go again but it is disappointing.
Speaking of disappointments…I am working on that Giotto scarf for Gracie’s teacher. I tried the drop stitch and didn’t care for it. I am going with the moss stitch and had to rip it as it was going to be too short. I started with 17 stitches and am now down to 11 and I think I will be able to give it fringe. I also let my mother rip Gracie’s Katia top. I screwed up the three needle bind off…cast off stitches were falling…it was mess! Gracie was desperate to wear it to school so I just “sewed” it up. All of the wraps have unwrapped. I think I need to rip it down to the armpit. Thank goodness it is a kids top and this time I will bind off with K2tog and put back on the needle.
Today looks like a good movie day for me. Curl up on the couch with knitting and a video. (And think of Gracie freezing her butt off)
