I have been going great on my Girasole. Until…
I was starting Chart C. I had 260 stitches on my needles. Oh no – nope… I had 263. I had a feeling that the mistake happened two rounds back or about 750 stitches back. I am not too good at ripping out in the round. I lose my place. I’ve been thinking about how I can avoid that. Thinking a simple safety pin maybe to mark a spot.
My other option of tinking back 750 stitches did not appeal to me either. So since it didn’t take me that long to get this point – I just ripped it all out. I’ve already made some headway again. I think I am going to have to have my cone of silence again. At least for awhile.
I was a little disgusted so I put the girasole away and knitted this dishcloth. I saw the pattern and was curious to see how the wedges would all come together. It was really fun and a fast knit too!
And finally, Davey is starting karate at the Little Gym this fall, and he is very excited. Very. “Mommy, I already know a lot about karate”, he tells me.
Then he demonstrates.
There’s a lot of “Hi Ya!!!” action too.
And lots of spinning around and crazy kicking.
