USA I Hate My Project Team?
So many bloggers out there are making amazing progress on their KO project, I am not one of them. I have no finished back, finished sleeves, or anything else finished for that matter. Why? you may ask, well I have really only been dedicating ordinary (for me) amounts of knitting time to the project, also I am bored and think I hate my project. My stitches are terribly uneven, and knitting Continental makes my left wrist hurt. Allison from Circles showed me a different way to purl continental, which helped my wrist but started to bother my thumb (I know, nothing but complaints, huh?) Well 4 days into the Olympics I am still on the back. On Sunday I almost cast on for my Wedding Ring Shawl, but instead to relax my left wrist I alternated Brioche with my VK Shawl, which you may have noticed languishing without progress on my progress bar for months. The Brioche is interesting in that the wrong side is almost as attractive as the right side, but man is the fabric thick, this will be one very warm sweater.
The socks that I showed in my last post aren't really from any pattern, I am kind of designing them myself, I did take the cable motif from a sweater pattern. I have not yet decided what kind of toe I will be using, so stay tuned for that!
Finally, in honor of the fact that this is the day that corporate America tells us that we are not loved if no one gives us flowers, chocolate, or jewelry (do they do this throughout the rest of the world?) a bouquet of Rowan Calmer, on Lantern Moon "stems" Remember, love is not proven on one day out of the year, but rather in the million and one small gestures, actions, and words that are exchanged daily.
Good Luck fellow Olympians!
