Twice in one day? Yeah, boy! I couldn’t justify blogging about our anniversary any day later so I posted about it today; you can read about our day trip of lovely sights and good eats here.
And with today being Sunday it’s also YOP1617. Once I got the tween’s sweater done (read here all about it), I was able to make some solid progress on my own jumper (part of My Sister’s Knitter Stash Down 2017 KAL as well):
Two weeks ago you saw most of the colorwork section completed. For today, not only did I finish up the 28 rounds, I also knitted the 2″ of ribbing.
Want a laugh? So pleased as punch I used my nostepinne to rewind what I had left of the two skeins of Sweet Georgia (grapefruit) that had been alternated with one another. Weighing them my yarn scale read 25 grams, about 55 yards. It then hit me I still had the sleeves and the neckline to knit up. I looked at the pattern to read that section’s directions and started panicking: Ho crap! There is no way I was going to have enough yarn! Oh man, I have to buy another skein? Then the light bulb finally went on – I should have another yarn cake in the project bag. I looked inside and duh! *smh Doh! Homer Simpson moment*
All done here and off to read the posts of fellow, YOP group members. TTYL and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Bye.
