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.
