I am working on the left front of The Sweater still. It’s requiring more ciphering and research. It’s such a mish mash of patterns now. At this point, I am just looking to different patterns for guidance and then trying to figure out how best to do it on my sweater.
Like the neck on the front. I looked at ravelry patterns today. I ciphered. I used fractions. It has become all very mathematical which actually I find pretty fun. It’s like “The Mystery of The Sweater.” I don’t know how it is all going to turn out, but I sure am going to know a heck of a lot more about the construction of a sweater when I am done.
A smarter person might have read about sweater construction prior to beginning. I know there are books that give you percentages and helpful guidelines to building a sweater pattern. But I ain’t that bright. I like the mysterious route.
I hope to finish the left front tonight.
And now in the world of Davey. More mysteries. Lucy, his imaginary dog, became a cat today. “Mommy, I put fur on her. Black and white. I put her in my room so that you won’t sneeze.” (I am pretty allergic to cats – even imaginary ones apparently.) He’s very thoughtful. By bedtime tonight, Lucy had transformed back into a dog. Lucy also has a new friend named Fred. Fred was at the store though. Not sure what he was up to there. But we are happy to have Fred join our family. I think Koko and Timber are relieved that Lucy is a dog again. They do not like cats at all.
