I wasn’t really hiding but there was a lot of stuff going on this week and so I’ve been neglectful of this here blog stuff.
First, the progress.
This is my Forest Path Stole. I’ve finished the second rectangle. This is very slow for me because there are two little kids and one big man who insist on talking to me every time I pick it up. As I am not yet familiar with the chart I can’t talk and knit on this at the same time.
The other problem is that with the second rectangle I had an extra stitch that didn’t get worked into the pattern.
Here’s the progress on my Rowena Cardigan. Now this is what I need right now. Brainless, pretty and soft. Reminds me of some girls I used to know – heh.
Alright, one thing about this. I’m using my Lantern Moon Destiny circulars for this. I love the needle. I am o.k. with the join. I hate the cable. See how it’s still all curly. I can’t get it to relax.
And, by the way, you guys were no help with my needles decision for the shop so I had to make the decision alone. Well, not alone. Betty and Pam helped me (my spinning teacher and my lace knitting and spinning friend). I went with the Addi Lace needles and the Addi Naturas. I started with only the 24 inch length because I want to see how it goes. I’ll probably expand the inventory in the next couple of months.
Last Monday was my birthday. I am now 42 – though I feel much younger.
Lou got me these fabulous roses and we went out to dinner – which I neglected to take pictures of. Let me just say that we went to Macaroni Grill and the diet was out the window. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
These roses come from the local flower shop and they are still fresh today like the day I got them. That is the best florist we have ever found.
Just a boy and his goldfish (crackers).
