Thanks for the comments regarding the MaryElla. I….LOVE….IT! Guido from It’s a Purl, Man even sent me an e-mail commenting on it! In my desire to be more masochistic, I strung some beads onto dark red perle 8 cotton….yes, I’m going to make another one. Really, it was a quick and relatively mindless knit…I’m serious! What can I say, I’ve had the urge to knit quicker projects recently. I’ve been working on a green/teal/lime/yellow dishcloth in a half-linen stitch. I like the look of the linen stitch, but it is so tedious so the half-linen is the best of both worlds.
Yesterday was Stitch ‘n Bitch day. We went to a historic house turned coffee shop and got to use the upstairs room. They even wrote us down so we couldn’t be kicked out! Here’s what we did:
Christine was working on a earthy-colored vest
Anne was able to finish her blue sweater
Sue was working on a green & grey Kimono vest
I was working on the Party Apron which is nearly done! But of course I can’t leave well enough alone, so I think I’m going to add a small pocket via a large buttonhole near the top. I think I’m also going to knit the ties on instead of adding them on later. I think it would seem less tedious to knit like 12 rows of a bunch of stitches instead of 9 stitches with a bunch of rows….ugh, they both seem annoying. Oh well, I’ll keep you posted. Have a great day!
