This is after nine row repeats, so 144 rows. I like how this picture shows off the leaf pattern. I also like how it’s finally gotten to the point where I can kinda tell what comes next by looking at the row before. My knitting friends call this “reading my knitting”.
Good thing I like to read.
Can someone explain to me why I can take this easy little chart
out of a cuff down sock pattern, drop it into a toe up sock pattern, use another pattern for various bits with relative ease. Btw, I’m not good at socks.
And yet a simple shawl with this easy little chart (Fall Leaves Shawl, Spin Off Magazine)
with no other modifications has taken me down a three year trail of painful woe, frustration, and heartache?
Even though I’ve just finished the 7th 16 row repeat, I don’t dare say it’s going well. But I can safely say that I like how it looks.
Dear Keeper of the Knitting Mysteries, may I?
It used to be all fun and games
Turning 18 isn’t all you thought it would be?
Maybe next year will be better.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful son. I love and miss you.
