My Knitting Life seems to be on pause, if not reverse, like some kind of knitting Twilight Zone episode. Go ahead and make those doo-doo-doo-doo theme sounds for yourself. I mean really, check it out. I'll skip showing you the 2 berets that are put aside until I can deal with them but consider them part of the show.
My Juliet is still being a surgically improved. I've blocked, put long circular needles through the two lines I want to join, taking out about 4" of garter stitch that now exists between them, using a 3 needle bindoff to do the join.
Then I'll delicately cut the extra , unravel it and use the yarn to get a better length on the bottom section. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it, even if it feels like this simple project will never end.
This is how it looks hanging around the sofa.
In the course of trying to go forward with the 3 needle bind off, I snapped one the few remaining Bakelite needles I have from Dave's Grandma Frieda.
I was lucky enough to know her pretty well. I love having the needles , they make me think of her when I work with them. I might frame the last one.
I thought I had breakthrough: I knit this stripey kimono for a freelance asst's new baby, and I was just sooo proud of myself for whipping it out quickly and cutely as can be until I pinned it out wet to block and discovered....
yup, I bound off two stripes too soon.
See what I mean? I bet it's not what they had in mind when they named the pattern Heartbreaking. (fyi? that's the ravelry link to 890 of these with the edges neatly matching).
