My friends can KNIT
My friend Kathy C can knit! She nearly finished this lovely sweater and tried it on for us today. She followed a pattern and mixed up her yarns. She loves black. I apologize for the photos. They could be much better. Dear friend Karen did the finishing/sleeve set work, and she did an awesome job. To everyone of you with a sweater on the needles, I applaud you. Really I do.
For now I'm trying to knit a lace sock. I've frogged it once. I'm NOT giving up. I find I can work one 4 row repeat successfully without :
Talking to Fireman
Answering the phone
Looking up at the TV
Getting up from my seat.
Then, and I am serious, I pick up something else for a few rows, speak to Fireman, look at the tv and drink something. This may be the slowest lace sock every knit......but I will not give up. I have the UTMOST respect for you lace knitters....
I'm well on the way with the second Cascade sock and I do think I'll need to do the toes in a different color for certain. Phew, so glad I left the first sock stitches live. I may felt them too......
Al wants a NOOK for her birthday....any suggestions, thoughts, ideas for me about this? Is one the same as another? Do they need a cover, (hand knit by the mother??)
I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>
