I haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to my projects lately, so I've been trying to take moments here and there to knit. Unfortunately I seem to be moving in reverse.
Remember this guy?
It is now this.
I was knitting on this during Baby Girl's ballet class and after a couple of inches I'm realizing that I'm off by one stitch in the pattern. Granted I haven't worked on this scarf in awhile, but the pattern is easy, K2 Ktbl P1. The Harlot's One Row Scarf pattern. As I try to figure out what I did (it was correct on one side, but wrong on the other), I realized that an end stitch was either dropped or knit together because instead of having 30 stitches, I had 29.
Since I wasn't loving the project anymore and it was causing more grief than relief, out it came. The yarn will go back in the closet to marinate. I have 4 balls of the stuff (Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk) so it will probably end up a scarf (maybe even with the same pattern), but not right now.
What does that leave me with? Not a whole lot. Here is Baby Girl's 2nd sock.
Moving fast on this one! I really need to cast on later today while it's light and I'm awake so that when it's night time and I'm half asleep, I don't have to think much abt it.
I only have 2 projects on the needles right now and they are both for charity. This one is the latest Odd Ball Blanket for Warm Woolies.
It's called Chocolate Indulgence. I mixed a deep red with a brown and it reminds me of chocolate covered cherries. Plus I'm using a basket weave pattern which reminds me of those little grids in candy boxes.
The last one is a kitty blanket for the shelter.
I got some cheap bulky yarn from a clearance bin in WalMart and it's knitting up fast.
Last week I met with my stitching group, but I was really tired that day and did more socializing than stitching. I worked on Too Pooped (how appropriate for the day!), but really didn't get much done. Can you tell what I did?
I'm hoping to work on some things this wknd, but it's turning into another busy one. A close friend's dad passed away last wknd and this is the wknd of the visiting family and the funeral. I'm helping her out as much as possible because she is the sibling that everybody looks to. That can be exhausting, especially when she is trying to deal with her own grief. I'm already putting myself on a schedule because while I'm going to be busy, I need to be sure to take time for myself which will include some knitting and/or stitching. I think I need to redirect my Pogo playing time as well. Lately I've been obsessed with Canasta.
