My lovely projects are not working with me right now.
(1) Somewhat Cowl is back on the needles but I've lost track of the beginning of the round and my increases. I just need to sit and figure it out but I just haven't felt like it. The other issue is that I'm not sure where I want to start the ribbing.
(2) I made a mistake on Big Bad Baby Blanket's seed stitch border and you know how much fun it is to fix mistakes in patterns. Not! I fixed a couple of the stitches but then put it down in a huff. You should be able to see the mistake which I highlighted. If not, believe me, it's there. Did I mention that this mistake is 10 inches down from my last row? I'm telling you, baby blankets are not my thing.
Maybe I'm just being moody. I need a tall glass of wine to go with my whine. That will make it all better. At least Monk and the Sweater is coming along well. I worked the back to the sleeves and will pick this up in the next design class. The idea is to make the sweater in two pieces so I need some help from our teacher Denise, Grandma Hollywood. We don't meet for a couple of weeks but in the meantime I'll work the front piece to the same point. RY Cashsoft has a very nice hand and the color is great.
I just joined the Knitting Nature KAL. Seriously, that's it for now. Now more KALs until I finish some of the outstanding projects, well at least Somewhat Cowl. Knitting Nature is a great book and Norah Gaughan has created some beautiful and inspiring pieces. I ordered a copy from Borders (love those 30% off coupons) and will pick it up tomorrow. A new knitting book is just the thing to get out of my knitting funk. I need to spend some quality time with the book but the project that has really caught my eye so far is the Roundabout Leaf Tank.
Some great books have come out this spring. So many great projects to choose from. What's a girl to do?! Wrap up some of these UFOs, that's what.
