Hello! My mini vacation to Niagara Falls was so much fun! I did get some knitting done, see:
The knititng on Petal is done! Yeah me! I made some modifications - not much, but here goes:
- I used the YO for the increase at the raglan to make it less bulky and feminine
- Knit the body about an inch longer so it hit at my hips
- Knit the short sleeves with a 2x2 ribbing
- Gauge at 22 sts versus 20 stitches the pattern states
Yarn: Tess Designer Superwash Merino, Nedles: 4mm
Also I knit a swatch using the Cascade 220 yarn for Chris' sweater. This stuff is quite nice to knit with and I totally can't wait until I get the long sleeve Green Gable sweater done so I can use the 4.5mm needles.
However, I do have to get going on my mom's Lady Eleanor - which is going very slowly. I knit the first set of triangles, which were quite easy. Now, I have to move on to step #2, and I've hit a roadblock. I need to find some quiet time so I can truly understand entrelac. Once I do, I am sure it will be smooth sailing.
One can hope right?
