I had to frog 2 days worth of labor...(about an inch)... when I picked up the stitches again, I checked the book for the needle size and read it when I looked at my work, I noticed that the new stitches were much bigger than the previous ones. When I checked the book again, I saw that you need the #7 needle only for one row and I had overlooked that... so I need to redo the whole thing in a # 4, me thinks...

o well stitch happens, right?

Picked up the brocade leaf sweater again

I had frogged it last year because I thought it would be too small, but the yarn resisted the frogging act... so I threw it in a corner...

last weekend I dragged it out again, and slipped on what I had - which was easy without the needles in it -and low and behold - it fit over my hips... so I praised La Resistance de Frogging and put it back on needles... Yay

Jetzt "nur" noch der Rand - only the edge left to do...

This little beauty, by the way

looks the same on both sides. It would make beautiful scarf therefore, too

The last five squares

Now "all" I have to do is sew together the 4 strips of five and devise a border, since the one in the pattern is not my cup of tea...

I should be in bed at this late/early hour. But today I got some yarn I traded with s.o. else (wave to Ithaca). That yarn is so beautiful, that after dutifully doing my homework for the grad seminar I had to roll the skein into a ball and at least try this pattern that has been occupying my yearning mind for quite a while now!.


Eigentlich sollte ich ja zu dieser nachtschlafenden Stunde im Bette sein, 1:41 h. Püüüh. Aber heute kam ein Paket mit superschöner Tauschwolle. Und da mir ein bestimmtes Sockenmuster schon lange im Kopf rumschwirrt und ich vorher wirklich ganz brav den Peter Handke fast fertig gelesen habe, so schwer es mir auch fiel, habe ich den Strang gewickelt und zumindest "angesaut" wie es in anderen blogs immer so schön heißt!
