When I discovered the discrepancy I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I’ve mentioned several times how much I hate to knit with Noro so not having to knit dozens more rows of 250 stitches made me dance with joy. On the other hand, I dislike starting a project and not achieving my vision for it. The finished product and my final decision to knit the ends together into a long cowl made me see the light. It turned out beautifully and will be something I can either gift or wear with pleasure. Good things come to those who refuse to knit with Noro.
Baby blankie is coming along. I am on the down-hill slope and enjoying the decreasing with every row. This is me, trying to finish before baby girl arrives.
I try to hit Little Knits sales several times a year. That is when I score most of my Malabrigo. This time I fell in love with Berrocco sparkly sock yarn so I ordered a whole bag of it. The project ideas are swirling around in my mind—sweater, socks, the diagonal cowl I have already started, and so much more. Maybe I need to order another bag of it. Can you see the sparkle?
The pups are lethargic during the summer months. I worry about them being sick when they drape themselves over the furniture and stare into space. It’s too hot for them to even bark at the garbage man. Is that why they call these the “dog days of summer?”
Life is good.
