Hello everyone! Happy Sunday Afternoon to you all. Its a lovely early spring afternoon, complete with rain. I love the rain and love seeing the blossoms and leaves come out on the trees and plants after a harsh winter.
Here I am again to tell you all about my knitting adventures. I have been working on my Bailey’s “Minty” Irish Cream cardigan. It is coming along, although Friday night I frogged it and started all over again. Its going a little better. The thing is, is not the most challenging pattern I have ever done, but I am working really 2 patterns at a time and I get a little forgetful. Has anybody ever experienced that when working 2 patterns at t a time? I am working the button band, which has a cable pattern and the front which has a lace pattern, they interchange at different times, I just need to remember when to cable the front and also remember, who really is going to notice? Am I going to let anyone that close to me so they can examine all the mistakes in my button band when I wear it?
Oh, did I tell you the exciting news! I won stitch markers! I won them from the Ravellenic Games from Team Stash and Burn. They are from Cat’s Pajamas Crafts, they are black with translucent pink beads and I can’t wait to use them. One think I like, which may seem odd, but I really like those personal touches, is when they arrived, the were so nicely wrapped. Like a present. See pictures below. I almost didn’t want to open it, they were wrapped so nice.
Oh, I am cooking ribs in the slow cooker for dinner tonight, that cooker is filling the house with that yummy rib smell, so good, I’m getting hungry. Still a few more hours until dinner though, Also on the menu is cole slaw with homemade dressing and cornbread in the iron skillet. Again,still a few more hours until dinner. Maybe I will knit until then. Yeah, that’s always a good idea.
Ok, everyone have a great week and I will talk to you all soon!
