Destination Loopy Laces, Days 1 and 2

Not only do I have trouble finding time to knit on weekends, but apparently posting to my blog is problematic. Actually the reason for both is the same. I tend to want to sleep knit on Friday and Saturday evenings. I don’t know why. I’ve finished the two and 3 pattern repeats on Loopy Laces sock 1. I hope to finish a bit more tonight than I did the last two nights. I’d estimated 3 or 4 repeats a night and am averaging 1.5 repeats. It’s not  a demanding pattern so shouldn’t be taking so long.

Detours

First a picture of the Buttons Cardigan–why, yes, it was larger last time I posted a picture. Yes, it was in a different yarn. I decided after completing about 3/4 of the yoke that the fabric produced by Berroco Vintage just wasn’t what I wanted. So I exchanged it for Twilley’s Freedom Sincere and cast on again. This fabric is much more to my liking. I should learn to listen to designers when they say to use DK weight yarn. I’m a mature enough knitter to know that if you want your piece to look like the designer’s picture, you need to start with the right yarn. I also cast on another 198 yards of heaven shawlette in Cascade Pacific. This was yarn that I had leftover from my Acer and is great for prayer shawls because it’s very soft (merino and acrylic) and is machine washable. I may get the gang at Gate City Yarns to order some for me to use especially for prayer shawls. I noticed that Gate City has kits using this yarn for the Great American Kids afghan.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
