Yop Update - Week 16 - October 16 - 23
Whew, after spinning all the previous week it was nice to get back to my knitting.
I pulled my wayside sweater out of hibernation and it took me a while to remember where I was and how to work the lace and cable pattern. Once I was on track I spent the week knitting and got this far:
Five full repeats of the twelve row pattern on 171 stitches.
I did get all my skeins from Spinzilla washed and dried, and I will start adding them to my sampler shawl and sock yarn blanket this coming week.
I will visit my sister very soon, because look what she found for me at the Free Store on her little island...
For sure this is enough to finish my blanket to 800 squares. I got two more squares done this week so my total is 772!
And.... I turn 61 tomorrow.
How the hell did that happen?
Honestly, I still feel nineteen inside.
I am spending this weekend in a little town of 29 people with a dear friend of ours. It is quiet, and peaceful here and we have already met at least a quarter of the town's residents.
So that is my week.
