This weekend I focused on finishing up my Vouge cover tank... I JUST need to seam the sides and I need to get the Kitchener stitch down again.
I am convinced that the decreases on the armhole shaping are not written correct. If I followed the instructions, I would have had used up too many stitches. It looks fine, but I wish I could follow the pattern w/o improvisation.
Saturday I went to the Churchmouse Sale on Bainbridge Island. I have no plans - but I really like the Sincopated Rib Sweater from the new Interweave Magazine
. I got a cream white JoSharp Aran (wool/sik/cashmere). It was 50% off so I got 12 balls for $52. The gauge is not exactly the same as the pattern, I will try to tweak it first. I don't want to mess this one up.
After, I went to Warren G. Magnuson Beach and sat in the shade for 3 hours knitting after I swam. I hate the rocks, it shouldn't be so painfull to go swimming, I guess it's better than walking in lake goo. Maybe I'll swim with sandals next time. It was my first lake swim this year.
I made Stella a WonTon cat toy. She's ignoring it. I think she likes the skinny dangly annoying in her face items, like my knitting needles. The wonton is really fat. She doesn't seem to care about the catnip so much. She seems happy enough, so I guess it doesn't really matter.
