Knitting This Week6:00 AM
It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along. I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share yarn and books. Last week I started my Hitofude and joined Karen and Steph in their KAL. I counted and counted and counted some more, each stitch. I did the two set up rows. I knit the first row of pattern. And was off FOUR stitches. What? How can that be? I counted and counted. I debated just making it work to the end. But I was only three rows in, so I ripped it all out and started over. UGH. So I have worked on my two at a time-toe up-magic loop socks, Hitofude, and the woven scarf. It doesn't feel like I've made any progress on any of my projects.
I have been reading Home Front by Kristin Hannah. A good friend gives me all of her books when she is done reading them. In fact, I've got quite a nice stack of "to be read" books. She also puts a little post it with her thoughts on the book. This note on this book says "I cried through the whole book." Great. Home Front is about a female army helicopter pilot who is in the national guard and gets called up for a year long tour of duty in Iraq (not too long after September 11th). She and her husband haven't been getting along too well and just before she leaves he tells her that he doesn't love her anymore. I have teared up a little bit, but since I'm reading it at work on my downtime I am really trying not to cry in public. (Not that there is anything wrong with that).
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
