Earlier this morning I tried to post, and google claimed I'd used up all my gigabytes or some such stuff. Now I have to be the first to admit, I've gotten a great free ride from BLogger since 2004 with this silly blog. I haven't paid dime one. So, I'm due I guess. Yet when I tried to add space, I got a malfunction message. So
One of two things happened:
I gained some gigas for free or I bought some bytes and it went through this morning.
Has this happened to you?
Next topic: The Shawl isnt' going so well. I bought some sugar cane yarn at the Sister's knit shop in Virginia......it was gorgeous blue colors. That yarn is so slick and slippery it wanted to knot itself up.
Al wound it into a well behaved ball, for me, but......its splitty. And its slick on the addi turbos. She mumbled something about liking wool for it's ease of winding and knitting properties....
I should have listened to her. I'm ripping it out today. I see it morphing into a beach bag or lacy scarf.....
Now the pattern is another story. I love the pattern. TGV by Susan Ascroft is perfectly clearly written and wonderful. So I'm going to start over with a different yarn altogether.
This process of starting and ripping and restarting and re ripping is just part of what I do when the fit isn't the greatest between me and the yarn and the pattern. I had not ONE problem with the baby blanket squares and yarn and needles. It was the right marriage from the start. Alas, that is not always the case.
No crying over frogged knitting....y'all hush. Its going to be fine.
