a big parade and festival this weekend and I really want to go.
Gung Hoy Fat Choy! Chuc Mung Nam Moi [thanks for the new phrase Vy]!!! Happy New Year!!!!
Ravelled up a crochet cute heart and within 5 minutes I was done. Then I decided to make a few more...for me. I can see how little projects like these are so addicting. Not only is the satisfaction of a FO almost immediate, there's the rush of using up all that waste bits and pieces of yarn!
Flo. I love the look of the moss stitch edge, but it is sloooooooow going. The sweater is knit on 6's, but the instructions say to knit the moss stitch bottom edge on 5's. My knitter's intuition was going off big time. I want a loose comfy cardigan and would hate the bottom band to be too clingy. The other thing that was concerning me was the fact that the front bands were knit at the same time as the sweater body...on size 6's. Not that anyone would be able to tell the difference between the size of the stitch on the button band and the bottom edge, but it was really buggin' me. So I quieted the voice by just deciding the knit the whole thing on 6's. Of course then the knitters intuition started saying that I wasn't following the instructions and I would mess it up, but I quickly quieted those voices. Let's hope I was right!
