Silly, silly me. Nancie was right. It's good to separate the stitches. Here's how this next part went. After perusing a stack of books and magazine articles from my own shelf, I set them all aside, convinced I was never going to get this technique down. The next morning I arose with renewed vigor (and stubbornness--sometimes it helps!), looked at Nancie Wiseman's instructions in The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques again, placed the knits on one needle and the purls on a separate needle and painstakingly...slowly...carefully...did it!
- Yoga workout
- Block a sweater coat I finished yesterday
- Do the rest of the ribbing BO on the sweater above
- Swatch some lace for a freelance submission
- Put the first round of corrections from the tester into the top-down sweater draft
- Figure out how to make a yummy stew out of the leftover veggies from the St. Patty's dinner (cuz we ate the corned beef on Reubens Saturday--delicious!)
What's on your list?
*AHHHHH (screaming inside) I just found out that the Hiatt book is finally being reprinted and should be out by November! YES! Mildly suspicious, however, as it states a price of $45 for the hard copy. Has it been *gasp* shortened?
