Good Morning and Happy New to the Blog!
Well after much internal debate, I ripped back the sweater in question yet again. Might be time to change my knitting name. I just was not happy with it. I am much happier than I was previously however. Instead of seed stitch I have gone with a straight purl. To my eye it does not look as sloppy as the seed did (is the yarn or my aging eyes), so that's what I am going with.
Two requests however, for the "chicks."
1) Never at any time let me buy a microfiber blend, I don't care soft it is.
2) Never again let me purchase that particular color, kind of a pinky coral, I don't care if it does look good on me.
Good news! "Shear Panic," has arrived! I now have it safely tucked away for the knitting retreat. I haven't even cracked the cellophane. I will wait.
I will schedule a "chick trip" to the local LYS that is closing (quiet sobbing in the background), for the 40% week. Will get back to you soon. They still have not changed the hours on their webpage (from the Holiday Hours). I will have to call them.
