I did it! Today is only March 2 and Cardigan Maybe is drying peacefully on the blocking foam – YAY me! I think giving myself a public, challenging deadline is a good way to achieve some goals but maybe I should test it a few more times before declaring this?
I reknitted the bottom edge of the cardigan with some extra strengthening by knitting little bases. I took the idea from a reference Vicki gave me on my last post, thank you Vicki! My bases are shorter, I just added 3 garter ridges in growing width and than 3 ridges all around. I think it looks ok, I will try to take a photo of it on the finished garment.
My new glasses:
Complement my beloved Different Lines perfectly:
I see very clearly with them and the letters on the computer are all nice and sharp again. Now, if only they will stop pushing on my nose I will be very happy with them. They are made in Japan for a Danish Company called Bellinger – from some weird reason this combination pleases me.
While waiting for some very special yarns, I am playing with this:
Garter of course! I think I started the most projects ever with this Ultramerino 8 yarn. I bought it years ago in some super sale in 2 of my favorite colors (in real life the dark is a bit darker and the light is less pinkish) and I was sure it will be knitted in no time but apparently it was not meant to be. I keep trying all sorts of things with it and never really found what it wants to be,,, The idea behind this latest attempt is to make some kind of a throw or baby blanket but it is too soon to tell or to announce a new deadline.
And I wanted to show you the stainless steal balls Joe bought me for Valentine Day and something I saw in my frying pan one bright morning, but I guess these will have to wait for another opportunity.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Yay you! Good going. The technique looks very interesting and I can’t wait to see how it worked out for you. Cute glasses!
mmm…STRIPES and GARTER STITCH! great glasses too.
Oh, I love that color combo for Different Lines (I really like that design), and your glasses are wonderful! I started looking around here for new frames and was so discouraged with the ornamentation found on every.single.pair. Ick. I only looked at one place, though, so maybe I’ll have better luck elsewhere.
Anxious to see how the fix turned out! And you are so very welcome.
LOVE the glasses! (And the stripes and the garter and the color, too!)
