Those three little words....
I'm making gauge. Aren't they the words you love to say? I've been swatching on and off for a week to get it perfect. Last night, after our knit GROUP, I finally did what Al suggested a week ago. I doubled up my yarn and made gauge for my ballerina sleeveless top. This was yarn I bought at STITCHES two years ago for my birthday. It's time.
The post photo is Al's newest sweater. A cardigan for her trip to the Grand Canyon.
She will also be spending a day at a Cubs Spring Training game. That's almost enough to make me give in and fly again.
Back to our knit group last night. I am going to have to start a project just for those two nights a month. Something completely mindless. I have yet to be knit productive whenever I have gone. I learn things from others. I love to see what they are knitting. In terms of actual knitting, which is why I want to go, it just isn't working out.
Tomorrow is my dear dog's 8th birthday. Be forewarned!
