I'm feeling a little dizzy from the 'round and 'round stuff! I have been knitting the first sleeve on the blue sweater for, ummm, three years now. Actually it's only been five days but why isn't it getting any longer? It was my bright idea to knit the sleeves in the round instead of flat and sew them on later. Now, with hindsight being all knowing, I realize that flat would have been faster. I have a whole sweater in my lap and after two or three times around the sleeve I have to stop and unwind the sweater and free up the working yarn. Note to self: follow the pattern instructions in the future!
Then there is the EZ Cardigan. I did follow the pattern on this one--gauge and all. Let me tell you, knitting with fingering weight yarn is s-l-o-o-o-w! On this one the instructions say to knit to the the armholes in the back then pick up shoulder stitches and knit the same amount for the right, then left fronts. EZ right? It would be if the instructions didn't direct the knitter into a quagmire of increasing for the vee-neck and increasing for the armholes at the same time only on different rows (every five here and every second there). There goes my head whirling again.
All of this keeps me knitting. It does not, however, provide bunches of blog thoughts. So please forgive me for the boring post.
I'll liven things up a bit with pictures of Macy doing doggie yoga. . She is very adept at her yoga and is seen here doing Downward Dog
and Proud Warrior
She is working on Matsyasana and making progress.
I should be so flexible! Life is good.
