Here's the sad state of affairs for my version of Branching Out. I have started and re-started so many times! Sometimes I realize what I did wrong and others I get to the end of a row and have not enough stitches left to finish it. My crownig glory screw up came last night. I was finishing up my third set of 10 rows and instead of doing the k3,pX,k3 I started the 9th row. The entire time I was knitting it, I was thinking that it looked weird! I'll say!
So, I started a felted hat for my friend Rosa's birthday that I can knit around and around and around. It's going to be a real beauty. I'm holding two pieces of brown wool and a third piece of this fine laceweight alapaca I got from Knitpics called Tide Pool. It's a beautiful shade of blue that shows up off and on. when it's felted, it'll be way cool. If you're knitting tonight in Davie, FL or San Diego, CA, I miss you all!
