Progressing slowly

Today is Ginny's Yarn Along!  I really enjoy having a glimpse of everyone's projects and books.  It gives me many ideas for some of my future projects.  I have been on a lacy scarf knitting streak.  This week I started an Advent Calendar Scarf from Ravelry.  For some reason, I was making mistakes that required ripping out and redoing.  I finally figured out the problem was not sitting long enough and getting the pattern memorized.  I also did not want to print out the pattern, so I saved the directions into a pdf file and am reading it off of my ipod touch.  That could be the problem too!  My eyes deceive me even with correction lenses because the print is small.



I started reading Fannie Flagg's book, Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man.  The beginning was a little slow going but now I am enjoying the story.  I have read all of the other books she has written.  I also just had to mention that the Knitting for Peace book in the photo I snagged at a thrift store for $1.99!!!!  I also broke a knick knack with my big purse that was $1.99 but the kind checkout lady did not want me to pay for it.  So I considered it a good shopping day.

I am slowly making progress on my son's Seamless Hybrid Sweater.  Stockinette stitch could be the death of me.  However, it is very good tv knitting and conversation knitting.  I do not think I could possibly make a mistake :D

  8. I love stockinette stitch for just that reason--I can do it while doing other things. I have never read any FF books either but I do see her around a lot. Enjoy!

  9. Ooh beautiful colors :) I actually love the stockinette stitch right now. I've been doing a lot of knitting while visiting and without having to keep track of knits & purls there's no possible way that I can mess it up *grin*. Happy new year.
