No knitting

It had literally stalled, until today.  I cast on for the crisp rectangle tunic top from Fitted Knits.  After much thought I finally decided to throw caution to the wind and completely ignore gauge.  I know… EEK!  There is logic behind this I swear!  The pattern starts at a 36″ bust, so if logic prevails, if I go down a needle size and use a yarn that has slightly smaller gauge, I should get a top that fits my bust size.  Right?  As for the halter top and boy shorts from Knitting Lingerie Style, it is exactly the same as when I last left it.  Unfinished.  I’m not a huge fan of variegated yarn, mostly because you can never be positive about the color variations.  I bought about four balls of variegated yarn, all in the same dye lot, except as I was knitting with the second ball I realized that towards the middle, the yarn is a lot lighter than the other three balls.  I decided to use it anyway and I’m not exactly happy with the results.

I took my kids to see the latest Harry Potter movie.  I’m embarrassed to admit I teared up several times.   I won’t even discuss the last Harry Potter book.  Tears.

    I found your blog through craftster (I’m “Gummy”) and I know this is a little late, but if you don’t want to randomly come up with knit/purl combinations, you could always roll dice (LOTS of dice) and write down the numbers you get, so you have an almost-pattern you can follow.

    (I do not have the body type to successfully wear anything tunic-length, so I will live vicariously through other knitters).
