Caution: lots of pictures!
This week has been a slow go for dear Green Gables. I ripped it out yet again after deciding the underarm was too tight. I figured out why: I had used M1 instead of K1F&B for the increases. Why, one might ask? I did not know this increase and could not find it in my Montse Stanley book, so I figured it would work okay. Not! M1 is not at all stretchy. And after looking at the lace panel, I decided I could do a better job than that as well.
So I cast on yet again and knit a few rows. Alas! Now what did I do???
Twisted when I joined. Oh rats! I guess it was just too late, I was too tired and I did have a bit of an adult beverage, thank you.
GG got ripped out one more time. The next morning I started over. This time I was *very* careful in joining and had success. I found in my Sally Melville Purl how to do the K1F&B. So now I am on the way again. This easy little Tee has been anything but for me! Here are some pics:
Here is the K1F&B:
Remember that we just celebrated our 20th? Here is the beautiful bracelet my beloved husband gave to me:
Yummy sock yarn from Carodan Farms!
Now that work is done for the weekend, my husband has also finished and we are just relaxing for a bit, I look forward to some quiet knitting time tonight and tomorrow.
