Knitting This Week7:45 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. I thought I would get a lot of knitting done on the airplane to Orange County, but I was so tired...we walked a lot at Disneyland and we played hard.
While I didn't get as much knitting done as I had planned, I did FINALLY finish the Maisie sweater that I was knitting for Miss C's school silent auction. I originally decided to knit this sweater because I had found 12 skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan at a crafter thrift store in Boulder. When I checked Ravelry this pattern popped up. It's cute, but this yarn is a pain in the rear end to knit with. As hard as it was to knit with, it was worse to seam the sweater with.
The only ribbon that I could find that looked halfway decent was black and it is 3/4 inch. When I sewed it on, I inadvertently sewed over the button holes. By mutual consent the mama's at crafting and I decided snaps would be best.
I am listening to Nora Roberts The Dark Witch. It's a part of another trilogy. I have to admit, I love Nora Roberts. I finished Compound Fractures by Stephen White. It wasn't my favorite book of the series and it was a continuation of the last book, Line of Fire. There were some things that I didn't remember from that book which may have helped make more sense to Compound Fractures. I am sad the series is over.
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday.
