Well another busy Wednesday! Craft Group at the church, lunch with the girls, maybe a nap, and Knittin Club in the evening.
But first I better post my work in progress. It started out like any other project… sort of a dark and stormy night story. Choose the pattern Abigail by Cheri Christian, been looking at this one for awhile. It has been several years since I knit myself a sweater, so I thought start with a vest. One of my resolutions was to do more and larger projects, this looked like a good beginning.
Purchased Northern Worsted, began by assembling my new Nova’s, unfortunately the ones needed had a burr in the screw that attached them to the needle. So quick trip to LYS for cheerful exchange of needle tips. Needles fixed cast on and began to knit, 1/3 of the yoke done and very 5 yds or so there were little picks in the yarn. At this point most sensible people realize there is a message here! However I forged on, hoping that this was only a little of the ball, 2/3′s of a ball later, but nope. Had to frog it and start all over. So back to LYS who cheerly exchanged disappointing yarn (which I am sure was a one off as I have used this yarn many times before), and to figure something else out.
Not wanting to take any more chances, I went to my fall back yarn Berocco Vintage, just love this stuff, and to smooth the ruffled feathers decided on favourite colour purple. Things are now going much better! I am almost back to where I was. I guess I should have listened to my knitting instincts to begin with.
This weeks book report: Began reading “The Haunted Monastery and The Chinese Maze Murders” by Robert van Gulik, Books #6 and #2, another six murder mysteries solved by Judge Dee. Published in 1961 and 1950.
Well hope you have all had a lovely Valentines day with the people you love. My sweetheart and I are going out for dinner later, and he bought me a romantic movie which he promised to watch with me :0) Find pattern here.
