While the lovely ladies at Looped were figuring out where I went wrong (I totally skipped two knit stitches ... duh), I also got some advice on buttons for the thread sweater that I finished some time ago. I had found some super cute daisy buttons, at Wal-Mart of all places, but they wouldn't fit through the damn button holes. So I went for some pretty blue glass buttons, and they worked like a charm!
|The sweater is currently being blocked for about the 80th time. It WILL eventually be the right shape.|
Once the Looped ladies figured out what when wrong with the pattern (and it's really a very simple pattern, 10 stitches over 4 rows) I moved right along. It almost looks like I know what I'm doing.
|I managed five repeats of the pattern this weekend before my hands cramped up and my elbow got stiff.|
|Slightly blurry, but a better shot of the pattern. Yarnovers create holes, which can be scary, but also pretty.|
I also had planned to wind a warp for my poor neglected Baby Wolf, but I couldn't find the pattern I had in mind anywhere in my house. Any weavers who recognize this pattern, from 2005 or earlier, please let me know. I thought I had gotten it from Handwoven, but I couldn't find it in any of my back issues. I made a thousand of these things, but for some reason the pattern is in hiding. http://tundragirl.blogspot.
