Presidents' Day Post
This is post #975. Yup. THe 1000th post is upon us. I hope to get there within a month. Oh there will be a contest.
I had some little troubles with my knitting this weekend. I want to make the Kaia Babydoll dress by Crafty Wee Wifey. I tried using my cotton/wool blend. Then my arm starting hurting. As much as I like the yarn, there just isn't much give to cotton blends. When I knit with Dream In Color the yarn just feels great in my hands. So, I quickly stopped that project. I also think the double stranded knitting in the beginning with all the increases for the raglan, little though it is, doesn't help either. I suppose you need to KFB whenever you make your raglan increases. Other make ones won't work or will they?
Good thing I have more Dream IN Color in a dreamy blue from my Valentine Swapper Kristen. I'm headed for more dream in....
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
