Geode Berroco Neck Warmer for my Sister Michelle
Neighbor Mary graciously consented to a photo op on her way to the bus stop with little Joey. I won't be surprised if I find a big old mannequin in my yard someday soon. I really should stop pestering the neighbors for blog shots.
My sister, the Vet who LOVES me to knit for her, chose some yarn when we visited 3 Kittens in Minnesota a few weeks ago. She has a gene for art and color. She choose these two shades of Geode :#3659 and 3650 for a grey/blue blend. We wanted a soft washable wool.
I knitted from a site on Ravelry that I have now forgotten but I remember the easy lovely pattern. You cast on a mulitple of 3 and add two stitches. You knit the first and last stitch of every row. Then the pattern: K,K, P. So K1, (K,K,P) across to the last stitch which you K again. Same on both sides. I love the look. Thanks to whoever invented this.
Is anyone else having trouble adjust to the time change, now a full 5 days later?
I am not alone.
Huck and the cats firmly believe the OLD 5:30 pm is still dinner time. I've been weaning them onto the new time.
I am still exhausted by the old bedtime and am still shocked that it is so early when I am clearly ready for bed!
Anyone else getting fooled still everyday?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
