I don’t know where the time has gone. I’ve been playing catch-up ball at work and lost a whole week. Last Saturday I went to Dallas (we call Dallas a little suburb of Fort Worth) with my girls to see the wonderful play Wicked. My sweet girls are DD, Granddaughter, and two DILs. I can never get enough of going places with them and just being with them. Add to that a super special production and I can honestly say that Wicked whipped up some magic for me!! Offering a back story for The Wizard of Oz was sheer genius and pure entertainment.
On to knitting--I wonder why when I am using yarn with long color changes and I start with the same color on a second part of a project, (sock, mitt, and mitten) why don’t the color changes occur in the same places. Does that happen to you? I was knitting along on these:
and I started both mitts with the coral section of the yarn but when it was time to change to beige or blue or rose—no match! I had to cut and paste, so to speak. It was infuriating! The result is that there are knots and woven in ends on the inside of the second mitt and that just makes me mad!! I can’t give that as a gift. Forget that, I don’t even want to wear them! Whoa, I think we were just hit by a mini-rant. Forgive me!!
Life is good!!
