Lateral Braid

I learned the neatest new technique last night.  I had a heck of a time getting it figured out, but once I did, I had a major “I feel like a real knitter moment”.

I can’t reveal the project because it is one of my secret projects, but I had to blog about this lateral braid.  The person who designed this project was inspired by a another project by Nancy Bush where she used this Estonian technique.  (At least I think it is Estonian.)

See that sideways looking knit?

I’ve never yet had an urge to design a pattern, but I really think I want to figure something out with a big chunky lateral braid running around it.  Like on a hat or something.   Guess I need to put that on my list.

I ordered the yarn for David’s sweater yesterday.  Unfortunately the main color is on back-order.  This is really going to put a kink in my David-imposed deadline of January something or another.  (2014)

David and Davey are playing.  They “played” chess a little while ago.  This involved setting up the pieces, scooting them around, and then they were done. Here’s a shady photo of Davey playing away.

Here is where I asked him to smile for me.  I think I can see his tonsils.

Happy Friday!  We were happy to have all day together!
