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!
LOVE that lateral braid! Davey and I play chess the same way.
Wow, that is a cool lateral braid…. You sound like a great knitter and I wish I could sit and knit for a while with you! I think I could learn a lot!
The lateral braid is very intriguing!
