Backward steps

Well today didn’t turn out as planned - I’m waiting for the plumber! He was here on Tuesday and thought he fixed the drain. Not! So a plumbing step backward. Missing work is also a back step - double back actually, less income due to plumbing expense.

So of course I am knitting. I finished this last night. Downtown in Malabrigo Arroyo. Fast, easy and I like it. If I were to do it again - I’d cast on twice as much to make it longer. But it’s working for me now. 

I started the Woodbine sweater over a year ago. Its one of those projects I put down for quick knits or this year for Christmas knitting. So now its time to pick it up again. Luckily I wrote down the needle size I was using when I borrowed it for some Christmas project. Progressing along nicely now. But I know I won’t finish it next - I’m waiting for new needles to restart the Pendleton Cowl. I started it with #2s (it calls for #3s) but have decided 1#s are best for me. So I asked Knitting friends what they liked - since my favorites (KnitPicks interchangables) don't come in #1s and researched online for the best price. In-Stock, good price and free shipping - score! Then the disappointing e-mail - backordered. Bummer. 

So today there are a few backward steps - but still moving forward one step at a time! Of course Gracie always moves forward - when she's not resting!
