so close


I finished the second sleeve of my Rowena cardigan last night, leaving only the seaming, front bands and the neckband to go. I'm almost done!

what's that, dear pattern? yes, yes, I know; pick up 165 sts around neck edge, yes, no problem; then knit front and back into every stitch for a total of...328sts.

ok.

knit 11 rows, then a fold line, then knit some 8 more rows...

oh.

yes, I see. Maybe not a close as I thought.
Perhaps that vision of me skipping fetchingly into work tomorrow in my fabulously quirky little cardigan will not be coming to a reality near me anytime this week.

Curse pattern books that can talk. Ruins all my fun.

couldn't you skip fetchingly into work wearing something else?

thanks for the getwellsoon :)

did you change from kgirl to missyK?
as in Missy Elliot?
Or am I just totally behind the 8-ball

yours sincerely,

the name change coincided with the set up of another blog and i didn't *click* that of course it would change my name on this blog too - not the brightest!

thinking of changing it back tho'
