I’m trying on the Monday afternoon to figure out how to write an interesting and exciting post. It’s not going to work. It’s raining and I’m just boring.
There was knitting this weekend. In my last post, I mentioned that I started the Firmament Lace Shawl. I’m now going to rip part of it out for the third time. I cannot knit this pattern. It’s ticking me off because I consider myself a fairly intelligent person. I guess I’m not. So, I have something to show you. Does everyone know how to pick up the stitches a ways down, and then unravel? If you don’t, take a look at this.
All I did was pick up the right leg of every stitch. I’ll continue all the way around the shawl. Then I’ll take out the outside circular needle, and unravel back to the lower needle, and all my stitches will be on the needle. If there’s one person that didn’t know this little trick, it will be worth it. It works great with socks, or about anything. It’s easiest on a stockinette section. I’m getting really good at it on this piece!
We spent the weekend in the motorhome, playing paintball, four wheeling, and doing the bonfire thing. We had friends out on Saturday, and just hung out. It was about 60 degrees! Perfect.
I don’t get the appeal, but the boys could do this for hours! Even the puppy had a relaxing weekend!
Now I need to go figure out what to do with two pounds of hamburger. Oh, and I need to pick out a different stitch pattern for the Firmament Lace Shawl. I’m not ripping that thing again!!!
With any luck, I may have a finished project to show you in a few days!
