Needless to say the reversible cables rib wrap hit the frog pond the other day. Do you see that enormous mistake I made counting rows? I nearly cried! I did try to pull it out to a fixable place, but this yarn was not having it. At 50 percent wool and silk, I wasn’t surprised. So frogging I went.
I decided to not start over, because, frankly, as mich as I love the pattern, it was a bit of a slog. Slow going and easy to lose my place. I decide instead to knit Twist Shawl, by Andrea Hilton. I love it, so far. I’m getting to the point where I have 300 stitches on the needles, and doing this in lace weight, I’ll have alot more by the time the wingspan is long enough.
This is much larger now, but I’m working on socks today, and don’t feel like pulling it out right now.
Dragonfly socks, such a quick pattern, and easily memorized. My favorite kind! This is the second of the pair, and they are flying along. I’m hoping to get through the gusset today.
Speaking of today, it’s my birthday. And I can’t do anything I would normally enjoy doing, because of this stupid shoulder pain. Therapy is going along (I still have to do my exercises today, which always makes the pain worse). Normally I’d take the dogs on a nice long walk, go on a hike or go kayaking. All out. So I will stay home, knit and Netflix. It could be worse!
I am fighting off the urge to hit my LYS for some birthday goodies, but am trying to resist. I have enough yarn for several projects, some big and some socks. And I can’t think of anything I want special right now, not wool and not a project. So o shall refrain…..at least for the moment. The day is young!
