Somedays they do try me! I mean they are easy to do, but if they aren't in the right order of the pattern..well you know..
This was my first attempt at a Barn Raising Quilt square. I was nearly done, then was off the stitch count and found the culprit...a messed up YO. If this didn't have to be square it would have been ok...but you know..after fixing the mistake, I found another one..on row 1.
So heh, it's being saved in case of emergency when I knit the leftovers into socks!
Here's the real deal! Apple Laine Apple Pie in the McIntosh Colorway (my favorite apple of all!) using US 2 dpns..yeah, easier for me on dpns.
This square will be sent to Stacey, who's Dad is undergoing prostate cancer treatment. I perservered on this square as I really wanted to donate to her quilt for her Dad. For lots of reasons which you all know ;) and I hate to quit knitting. But for me, would I ever knit this entire quilt?? Um..nope sewing is much faster.
So as you can see, my Ravelympics progress have been a bit lacking..
but hey, lots of winners come outta behind the pack! Event 1, Koolhaas hat, 2nd cast on and success...row 1 of pattern completed...darned f & b cabling..gah!! hehe..I do love cabling. Had to go to US 5's for the ribbing and now using 7's for the main part and going much better and it fits me so far!
Event 2 Chickadee Cowl
So, one always needs some mindless knitting right...
Here it is ....k1, slip 1...etc...ahhhhh loving how the Watermelon Tourmaline is looking.
More progress....stay tuned ;)
