Keeping with my plans

 

 

I made a tentative plan for 2009 and by golly, I’m sticking with it! I have started knitting the Emma Peel dress for little Victoria. I cast on last night and got a lot done. I think this will be a quick knit. I am knitting it in the round. I really like this Pebbles Classic Elite Yarn. I have never knit with cotton before, but it’s not so bad. It slides quickly on my Addis. I think it will end up being a cute dress. Here it is so far.

I finally finished the Wave socks. Finished them during the Super Bowl the other night. That was a great game BTW. It was a learning experience and did not come out perfect. So, what did I learn?

 

  • When knitting multicolored socks, keep the stranded wool very loose in the back otherwise it will be difficult to get on
  • Don’t knit while sleepy. You may mess up the pattern.
  • check the number of stitches every once and a while
  • Don’t knit during a good football game

 

Here I am modeling them.

Can you see where I messed up the pattern?

I am very excited about receiving a ball winder and swift today. I bought it from someone on Ravelry for a great buy! It was like getting the Ball winder for free. I am very grateful for this. It will come in very handy and it can be pricy. The swift is even wood.
