Well . . . I pulled out the Baby Surprise sweater again last night. I found that I was using an 8 needle instead of a 6. Huh? How the heck did I do that??? I would have bet money I was using a 6. Anyway, I bought a 29" no. 6 circular yesterday to replace what I thought was a 16" 6 that I had been using, and realized when I was transferring the needles that I was using a too large needle. To be honest, it seemed really too big. Now we know . . .
In a way it probably is a good thing. I had wanted to chart the sweater as I went along and just didn't do it. But this time I'm charting. I'm about 15 rows into the new sweater (on the 6 needle) and it goes fairly fast. I'm watching the video as I go along (thank you, Susanne!!), so I should be able to get it fairly accurate. I'll pass it along to whomever wants it--we've got to keep these babies warm!
I've been watching for the MVFF lambcam to be up and running, but so far no. Poor Susan must be losing her mind waiting and waiting and waiting . . . poor girl! I wonder what the giveaways are going to be. I love a good contest and winning something is always a lot of fun.
I joined a lace knitting group yesterday. They're going to start a knit-for the newbys to help us learn what we're doin. Fun, fun, fun. Seems like a really sweet group of girls. Should be a lot of fun.
I have a gazillion things to do today, although I did laundry last night. I need to look for a new down comforter today--ours is just worn out. I might look for a new duvet too. I really do need an extra.
Ok. Gracie's at the door. Better go. YIPPEE. Maybe she's figurin out that we go OUTSIDE to potty!!! Geez! :O)
