I have been knitting all week—mostly monsters but have nothing finished to share except another crocheted shawl.
Hopefully by next Friday I will have much more to share.
Blocked out she should be beautiful
and today I am knitting elephants—–not feeling well I can’t seem to concentrate on any kind of pattern and I am rethinking the Sunny side anyway—I have seen a lot done or progressing on Ravelry and i am not happy with the business of them especially in the striping yarns they are supposedly designed for, so it may be the frog pond and find another use for the Kauni. I am only on the 4th block of 6 which is the the entire first clue with 3 big clues to go, so I am happy to come to this decision now rather then later. Of course in my designer mind I am playing with ways to make it into something I might like too but …………………………………….
Yes that is the name of the shawl I am making right now and yes I think it is cursed. I am using a beautiful Ella rae Merino superwash in a bright pink and size 9 needles but every pattern row I have made an error on every one—and it is easy peasy, a simple staggered eyelet. What is wrong with me?
I transitioned yesterday from the body to the edging and goofed up the first row of edging—267 stitches and I noticed my mistake at stitch 265, I fixed it all on the next row with ripping of individual stitches and making it an additional all garter row instead of a pattern row. To me SKP means slip knit pass slip over —in this pattern it meant slip knit two together and pass the slip over. I use the symbol Sk2tp for that one. I have to learn to read the stitch glossary instead of assuming.
I want to start my sunny side up shawl but refuse to until I finish the Black (albeit in this case Pink) Death.
he is about 3 inches high, he is made with GypsyKnits Yarn held doubled, he needs to be stuffed and sewn together but right now I like him being Flat Coco
