I was getting nervous there.
I was down to only one project on the needles, and you know how that is!
My other project is at the finishing stages: button band and neckline ribbing. I wanted something else to do while I procrastinated…If that is possible. I’m just dreading picking up all those stitches!
My criteria: it needed plain stockinette and simple math. I also wanted to use up some stash yarn, and have had this pattern dog-eared ever since I got the book More Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Sounds like a match made in heaven, no?
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!
