Eye Candy Friday















11 Day Hiatus Ends: Well, well............it happens here and there. Life gets busy and I keep forgetting to post. Eventually I have much to post then I get into a quandary about what to post. So here goes:

Mystery Stole 3: Since last post the need to rip, rip,rip became apparent. Even though I used a dental floss lifeline I was not able to salvage the knitting of the first chart. This was not so bad actually......knitting the first two charts taught me much about my need to knit carefully. When I told Iris about my stitch fudging she cautioned me to not let that go too far. Judy made me understand this as well when she told me she reknit a row three times to get it right. I am proud to say I am on row 67 and pleased with the result. Of course, I'm not keeping pace with the other 5,000 knitters globally who are cranking out this stole, but that's not an issue for me. It's the process that draws me.

I know that feeling! The hard part for me is thinking that I know what the stitches will be on the stole, only to discover half a row later that I guessed wrong.
