You may recall that last week I made cat-face bread. This week? Oregon bread!
Last night we had a lovely, candy-colored sunset:
The cats have been practicing for the Olympic Synchronized Sleeping competition. I’m only going to give them an 8 out of 10 for this one. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the front paws are in opposite positions.
This one is at least a 9.0. One point deducted for the right front paw, which is tucked slightly out of sync. (The tail asymmetry doesn’t count. Brady can’t help it.)
I finished the body of the Mr. Burrito Commemorative Sweater. Actually, I finished the body at least a week ago.
Last night I finally did the math on how long the sleeves would be, the circumference at the wrist, the number of stitches and rows required, worked out the decrease rate, and picked up all the stitches. Then I knit like an inch and put it down again.
Yes, it took me a week to get around to doing that. It was a lot of steps! And the tape measure was over here, while the sweater was over there. Granted they were only ten feet apart, but still. It’s been one of those kinds of weeks.
Notice how nicely the edge doesn’t roll.
Seed Moss stitch, baby! To be fair, I picked up the technique from TechKnitting. And I probably wouldn’t have thought of it if Rachel hadn’t complained of the problem on her Drops 103-1.
