Sunday Lessons

 I started the Garter Trap and decided I'd rather do it in stockinette.  
I wasn't feeling the bumpy love. 
For this simple pattern, 
you need to Make one in any manner you choose on each 3rd row.
I tried knit in front and back but it was an obvious ick….
So I googled Make One options and settled for
Make One Away courtesy of Knittinghelp.com.
The Make One Away is a simple loop twist onto the right needle. 
It is not nearly as noticeable. 

I learned another knit trick for blogging this week, courtesy of Zach. 
Seems on Mac keyboards, if you hit shift, command and the number 4 you can take a picture of the screen.   You can then put it on your desktop.  

One more little trick I'd like to pass on to you:
I took my shawl to the cleaners in town yesterday and indeed she will block it.   Word on the streets was it would cost ten dollars.  Nope.  She said it would cost five.  
Crazy good news!

I would have paid 10, I hate blocking!

Oooh pretty roses! I can't wait for mine to bud!

Blocking is not a favorite activity of mine: I'd pay $10 but $5 is even better!

I love my Mac and take screen shots all the time, even on the iPad and my iPhone I snap screen shots.
