  1. You’re crochet work is coming along well. That takes a lot of patience though.

    Oh stop. I can’t do that. You did this on Photoshop, right?!?

    Wow, that is really clever lavenderbay. I still need much more tuition in the knitting area. The funny thing is I keep buying books on how to knit things but then the books are written in some kind of gobbledegook such as:

    ” Right front leg. Using No. 10 needles and A, cast on 28 sts. Beg with a K row work 7 rows st st”

    or

    “dec one st at beg of 9th and every foll 4th row 4 times”

    Ahhhhhhhhhh

    More patience than I hope you’ll ever need to know, Urban Thought! See below.

    Photoshop, Almostgotit? Good idea; then I could switch that smaller square for one with the right stitches. See below.

    I can sympathize, Livingisdetail. I wish I couldn’t, but I can. After I posted this entry, I went back to the sweater instructions, and slowly the dreadful realization dawned that “the established pattern” didn’t mean “do the rest of the small square the way you started it in the first row”, but “after the first row, continue on with the cabling pattern you were using in the big square”.

    So, what to do? I think I’ll leave it until I work the front, and then see if there’s enough purplish yarn left to rework the smaller square. To be continued…

  5. You’re really making good progress!

    You’re clever…I just do scarves and people comment on the ‘nice homemade look’!

  7. lavenderbay says:

    Well… you’re right, Bobbie. I haven’t screamed and tossed it in the dumpster yet. For me, that’s progress!

    Whether that’s true I wouldn’t know, Alyson, but I do know you sew quite nicely. Charlie Brown was always running into kite-eating trees, and I always get stuck with the thread-eating trouser hems.

    Your work is sooo neat. My edges never were straight. *rolling eyes*

    Thanks, Gina! Is there an award for blog cheerleading? You would win it.
