Got any stinky projects?

This morning I found this ode about knitting. I can definitely relate, and I had a good morning chuckle. Thanks, CaityRose for sharing it. I’ve been knitting for almost 47 years now and have worked several projects that wished I could blow up. Not to mention the fact that, sometimes, they stink! As I’ve matured, I’ve decided that the stinky ones that need to be exploded are likely to live in a drawer so I now frog them unless they’re a gift or shop sample. Those I whine and knit.

In my last post I failed to give the pattern and yarn for the Raggi pullover. The pattern is Ann Norling #53 and the yarn is Jarbo Raggi.

Today I worked on Breaker. I’m using Verde Collection Sprout. I’ve finished the yoke and started the body. I’ll probably work on this project through the weekend.The Breaker is really slow knitting–not sure why, may be the yarn. It’s a stockinette piece which usually knits pretty fast. – I’ve got castonitis to cast on Elizabeth but am trying to resist until Monday.

I also did some blocking today. I was going to do this Saturday but my friend, Tina, encouraged me to eat cheesecake for lunch Saturday so I did the blocking today so that I can get my cheesecake fix.

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