A Better Day

A round of applause please! Thank you, Thank you. I am now much more content with the top down cardigan after last night. Woot Woot, as they say. I did rip back, and then I knit, and knit and knit. Last night I was decidedly content. A step in the right direction. I even knit a few rounds this morning. As you can see the seed stitch has been replaced. Maybe it was just me (Not) but the seed stitch with a microfiber (never again, repeat, never again) just looked plain sloppy. So plain old purling it is.

As you can tell by the photo, the last vestiges of Christmas are still lingering. While I should be taking down the small tree in the kitchen, and hauling it to the store room down yonder, instead I sit at the computer blogging. Yeah. Three pieces of Christmas remain, and I still haven't removed them. The small tree, a basket of poinsettias, and a basket of glass bulbs. The sweater is of so artfully draped across the tree because the rest of the place is a disaster. I need to clean. Two weekends of company and cooking over the holidays, the children home over vacation has left the household in a shambles. At one point we had four dogs (not unlike my cohort CT), so the doggy prints on the kitchen floor need to go.

Knitting with the girls CT. Sounds awesome to me. I can't wait to see GT's cabled mittens, and MT's green mittens. I am thinking I should be looking for a cabled top down something or other. It might be amusing, and no mind numbing as endless stockinet. And something green, I do so love the color (again, not unlike my cohort CT).

Better get to work removing Christmas and the doggy prints. Have a lovely Saturday all!

P.S. Shear Panic arrived, I promise to break the cellophane until the lake! However, my Christmas order from Amazon has still not arrived.

Wow, CB that looks great. Now is the hard part. Back and forth, back and forth. It is mindless, so you can knit and talk, watch tv, etc.
