I finished the tiny tea leaves cardigan only to find a mistake in one sleeve which I've already ripped out and started over. Golly! On one hand, I'm thrilled I found the mistake but gosh, I do wish I would have seen it before an entire sleeve was knit up. At least, it's a tiny sleeve. Do you rip out? Or do you assume no one will find the mistake?
If I find a knitting mistake, I cannot let it exist..
I was thrilled to find Beartown in paperback at the bookstore. I'm not sure when I will start reading it, but it will be soonish. I'm hosting Easter for the first time in about six - seven years. I've slowly started to decide what to make for dinner. So far I'm leaning towards a turkey breast and potatoes au gratin, and either green beans or asparagus. After that I'm at a loss! What are your go to dishes that you cook?
Miss Holly has been 'graciously' trimming my shamrock plants that used to be on the kitchen window sill. So I've become creative at keeping her away from them. She cannot jump up where the Christmas cacti are (she tried once and failed and hasn't tried again - she's defeated). I've already thrown away a tree she was decapitating a few weeks ago. Sometimes I feel so smart when I outwit her.
She tends not to eat the other plants. Silly girl.
Everyday this week, we've had snow, snow and more snow. Luckily, the last snowstorm that hit the east coast missed us. Yesterday, most of the snow melted and this morning everything is blanketed in white once again. I am knitting away and ignoring the lingering winter weather. Any day now the weather should turn nice, right?
Once this cardigan is off the needles, I'm focusing on hat knitting - speedy, fast, instantaneously gratifying knitting.
By the way, if you haven't commented on the giveaway on this blog post, you have until next Tuesday!
