the back of Lexical came off the needles late last night----------yay! I had forgotten that the decreases on a raglan sleeve do seem to go on forever! I'll be casting on for a front later today, the front of a sweater always seems to zip right along after working the back.
On a related note my deep apologies to THE Norah Gaughan........... sigh. In a wild and harried moment of what was I thinking, on my way to knit with the ladies last night (wonderful as always), I grabbed NG Volume I, some yarn an needles, shoved them into my bag and dashed out the door. After my first cup of coffee and some chit chat I cast on for Astrid. Sigh. I've always loved this fabulous scarf comprised of those interesting Norah shapes. Well, apparently I'm an idiot (which perhaps comes as no surprise to some)
I brought the wrong sized needles (noticing it after I was into the second row)===== and I have to admit, starting row 1 with a yo just wrinkled my brain in a way that wasn't happening for me. With the help of fellow knitters I moved stitches, wiggled position----- and it still made me crazy. Finding out that in my super haste I had not only brought the wrong dpn's but had knit with them------ well it was just too much. Time to move on. I'll regroup, after all this scarf is completely fabulous!! I'm knitting it in a go with anything gray.
Did I mention I bought new yarn the other day? Uh huh----------- we'll talk about that later. I seriously don't know when or how I'll get it all done.
