I am knitting the bottom of the barrel modular purse. My knitting is as exciting as licking stamps.
I am plodding along on this project to have something to do. It is not the most exciting fish project in the sea.
I did finish the 7th Harry Potter book. I am in shock and awe. It was amazing. You are driven to get to the end, but you do not want it to end. There is a sadness about its finality. I must say though, placing my beautiful Hemlock across my knees while snuggled up with Harry P. made me very happy!!
I did a lot of swatching over the past few days and nothing has clicked, so I will be returning some yarn this week. I would rather waste one skein and move on than sit on yarn I do not think I will use.
Kauni Update: I need to finish Sleeve #1. When you knit a Kauni sleeve, you need to err on the side of too long rather than too short. You can always rip back, but it would be nearly impossible to add length if you have already moved on to the second sleeve. The colors need to stay in sync. I am knitting my sleeves from the cuff up, so I will need to make sure the sleeve is overly generous before breaking off for Sleeve #2. I also may change the way I am doing the shoulders. I am considering a 3-needle bind off with a visible outside ridge. Don’t know yet, still pondering! 😉
It is a rainey Sunday afternoon, so you know where I am headed.
PS — Daughter #1 got a job in a darling coffee shop!! Woo Hoo! Whip me up a latte, Baby!
