You know, when things are crazy in your life, your knitting sometimes reflects it. Jumping into this project was the best idea I've had in a while. That said, I've kind of had some not-so-awesome things happen in between casting on and noticing that something was amiss. We've had a houseguest, a death in the family, and my 4 year old caught something that has made her more sick than she's ever been in her life. Somehow, amidst the chaos, I missed the increase after the first chart. It also might be due to the fact that I'm working off a tablet instead of a printout, but whatever. I am now the proud owner of a Leaves of Grass hat!
I'm definitely seeing the silver lining of this mistake, because the original yarn was hard on my hands, making them stiff and sore after a short time knitting. I have decided to switch to a Zephyr laceweight wool-silk blend. I am choosing a beautiful shade of copper, and will be right there with Kelli and Lori Ann when we all find Celtic shawl pins!
Much love to all, I'll do my best to catch up with everyone!
