Another Goof

Rubbing alcohol was suggested for my ink blotch, but I didn't read the suggestion until after I took the knitting off the needle. I will have to remember that for the next time it happens. As I discovered while looking through some old pics, this isn't the first time I've inked my knitting. I've been closing my pens, but who knows how long I will remember to do that.

So, I started again and was doing well until I realized that I hadn't switched my Denise needle points back to the smaller size for the ribbing. I was beginning to wonder if I'm supposed to make this. But I've been planning it for so long. And everyone that sees the pattern exclaims how cute it is. So, my perseverance (stubbornness) kicked in and I cast on again 248 stitches. I'm getting quite good at it.

Thank you to all of my knitting supporters.

Textured Tee and Mistake

I'm finally happy to have a sweater finished that fits. This isn't the best picture, though. I'm hoping to have Shelly at Twist take a better picture of it today.
I was excited to begin my next sweater. I had gotten a couple of inches done in the round. I found out this week that I will be switching my major at school. So now I have two classes to prepare for tonight instead of just one. Yesterday evening I was editing a paper that I wrote and set my pen down to do some reading. This morning I picked the paper up to finish editing and found something awful.

I always edit with pink or red ink so it can be seen easily. Why in the world didn't I think about putting the lid back on that stupid pen when I set it down. Of course it doesn't help that I have gobs of stuff piled on one little table.
Now, what am I going to do!? WAIL!!!!!!!!!!

A Finished Project

The Textured Tee is finished. I wore it to work on Tuesday. I have a picture, but I haven't had time to upload it because of homework.

I cast on for Lacey Vee shell. It took awhile - 248 stitches! I'm on the second row. I wonder how long this is going to take? Size 5 and 7 needles with DK weight yarn.
