Visiting the frogs

Seems like lately even the simplest of projects result in trips to the frog pond. I’m no fan of frogs except the tree frogs that chirp to herald the coming of warm weather. I frogged two projects Sunday simply because I failed to count when I should have. The yoke of my design baby sweater and a couple of inches of sleeve had to be frogged due to a missed increase. If I’d counted when I joined, life would have been so much easier. Then the set-up row on my February lady sweater was wrong so I ripped out about 10 rows of that project. All is back on track and the moral of the story is count twice, knit once.
Now on to the fo’s…I finished the Hooded Cardi Vest from Vogue Knitting Winter 2010 in Berroco Sundae.This was my “mindless” knit night project but I changed it to the Olympics project. I found that I could not work the Oregon cardigan and watch the Olympics.
Here’s a picture of my Multnomah from Dragonfly Fibers Djinni in Pink Hydrangea (I think)and the first design baby sweater using Sandnes Garn Duettand Nebula Socks using Cherry Tree Hill Select in Island Redand this is a close up of a weaving project, a shawl using 5/1 lace in perle cottonand the alpaca I was spinning

The loom is resting right now but hopefully will warp this weekend to weave some dish towels.
I’m plying some Gale’s Arts BFL.
To all grace and peace and to my knitting friends, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.

    WOWSER! Timmie, you’ve been busy and all your projects look terrific! Your weaving and spinning have really progressed. Love the hooded cardi vest. That looks like a sweater that you’ll wear a lot!

    Hello, I’m now working on the Hooded Cardi Vest. But I encounter a problem when I knit the York. Can I ask you a question about it?

    When start knit the york, after working 27 sts k1, p1 rib for 2 rows, the 3nd row is working 18 sts in rib, inc 1 in next st., rib to end (28 sts), then work 3 rows even. My problem is how to knit the next 3 rows after increase?

    I’m very appreciate your help.
