About that knitting… I finally put in a life line and got big and brave to start the chart. What was holding me back was that I couldn’t see how it would work out in terms of the numbers. The number of stitches on needles and the number in the chart I just couldn’t make work. But sometimes that happens because I just can’t figure it out and not because there is a problem. Sadly that wasn’t the case here. I’m not sure what I’ll do about it. It’s a lovely shawl but I’m not sure what is going on.
The next pattern I was going to work on got lost. A friend had emailed me the pattern (actually a translation of it) and thanks to an email malfunction it’s gone. A friend posted some pictures of cabled cowls yesterday on Facebook, asking if anyone wanted to make one for her. So I’m digging through my stash to find a color she might like.
But in the meantime I’ve been itching to knit. I think it will help me a lot right now to be knitting. So last night I cast on the same shawl I’ve already had to set aside in some pink yarn I had to make a shawl (of some sort, obviously not the one on hold) for the Girl who was stealing mine at church on Sunday. And I’ll admit I’m making her one not because she wants one but because I was having minor panic attacks every time she pulled mine off of me and wrapped herself in it. All that lovely lace can’t possibly stand up to the strength of this girl.
Linking up with Ginny.
