I wanted to show you what has me just tickled teal!
It's the start of this:
A pattern by Kristen TenDyke in Vogue Summer 2008. I mis-read the pattern earlier in the week. (I know, imagine that!) I thought I was going to have to write out a little cheat sheet. I was thrilled when I sat down to dig into the project and realized "DUH!" So I did a swatch. Garter stitch only and after 4 rows, it looked good so I cast on. If it's too small, it's just the type of holey sweater my friend in SC has been wanting me to make for her for quite some time. And if it fits me, I am not taking it to Maine for fear it might be lost and, oddly enough, be found in SC when she gets home.
I'm using stitch markers to identify the cable bits. The other parts are 8 stitch lace pattern. I got lazy with the increases and started another lace repeat once I had all 8 stitches on the needle. I got confused try to add them in otherwise. I know I'm easily confused. I embrace it.
There is about 3 more inches as of this afternoon. I had a couple of calls that I had to knit while I was on them. I love that about my job. Knitting really helps me stay focused. Otherwise I'm tempted to check email, work on my presentation for the beginning of June or check to see if I'll ever hear from the eBay seller who sold me a bad heart rate monitor.
Tonight the Husband has band practice for a charity gig on Sunday afternoon. So I'm either going to stay home and watch a movie and knit or knit, stay home and watch a movie or watch a movie, knit and stay home.
Happy Weekend! Happy Friday! Happy Knitting! Will someone pack for my trip next week. I've done nothing to prepare.
