Oh, we had so much fun yesterday!
We went to the Dave Moore nature area, which is one of our favorite spots. It is specifically designed for those with physical impairments. It has picnic tables built to accommodate wheelchairs and wide paths and bridges over even the smallest ravine or creek.
We love this because it means it is toddler friendly! We even brought our stroller when Landon was a baby (although the second half of the trail is a little more challenging for strollers)
There are some huge strange rocks that the kids loved climbing around on.
I have a somewhat silly way I keep track of pattern repeats.
Yes, it’s confession time. I keep cards in my knitting bag.
In this particular pattern, Looking Back, there is a 12 row repeat. Before I really got the hang of the pattern, I was having trouble keeping track of my rows.
Was I on row 3 or 10?
(F.O. = Finished Object)
I finished this little top a little while ago, and am so happy with how it turned out! I loved the yarn in the cone, but wasn’t sure how it would translate in the top. The bodice is a little tiger stripe-y, but I like it.
I finally got around to taking pictures in my Twist Shrug (it’s actually called Mother-Daughter Twist Front Shrug). It’s been 95°-100° here since I finished it and it was just too hot!
How should I hem this tunic? I’ve tried a couple different lace options that were either too complicated or sloppy looking.
I don’t want bobbles, or garter or stockinette…
What should I do?!
I cast on this little top for my daughter on the fourth. It’s the third time I’ve knit this pattern, and I adore it. It’s versatile and fits for a long time. Gotta love positive ease in kids clothes. Plus, it’s so nice to have something mindless on the needles!
