I've been knitting away on my sweater! Late last week, I realized I had knit a row incorrectly, so I had to knit back about 10 rows! That was super frustrating. I also learned (thanks to my friend Suzanne) why it is important to alternate skeins of yarn when working with hand dyed yarn. I will admit that I got kind of freaked out and I was frustrated that there is so much to knitting that I have absolutely no clue about. However, I am enjoying learning new things...even if it is a little painful. :) I'm knitting forward again, and I am pleased with my progress! I very carefully tried on the sweater this morning and the size is spot on. What a relief! I really love the color and how the yarn is knitting up.this pillow that Anna made awhile back. I loved it so. In fact, this fabric scrap came from Anna and I believe that it was actually leftover from her pillow. I absolutely love it in pincushion form! It measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". It is scrap project #189!
I'm so thankful for quick projects that I can sew from the stash. Perfect for the week before Christmas!
Happy Monday to you!
