Knitting stuff and going on and on.

Brilliant.

I had been hoping to have today off. I didn't have any children scheduled to come this morning and was planning on getting up and taking off for the day. Girly wanted to go to the sheep farm again and I wanted to check out their yarn shop with a little more time than I had last time. Sigh. It was not to be today. My sister got called in and I am looking after her kids. Tomorrow we go to the farm, today I sook a little bit. Brilliant plan.

Yesterday on a forum, I heard tell of people using cookie sheets and magnets to help them read their lace charts more easily. I had a stroke of brilliance and got mine set up too. Much easier for sure!


Hope your day is better than mine or at least with a bit less sooking going on.

ETA: Just me retouching the chart photo. I didn't double check to see how clearly it was coming through and since it's a copyrighted photo, I should have made sure it wasn't clear enough to knit from. I apologize to Melanie and to all of you.

  • Sorry that there's sooking over there. I think there's sooking over here, too, though this is the first time I've seen the term.

    if you get frustrated with the pattern, you can hold it up with b u g g e r or c r i k e y.

  • That is brilliant! I am so using that idea.
    Thank you for sharing!
    (and using the word sook - I love rare words)

  • I also have to sit up to the dinning room or kitchen table to knit lace. That way I can sit up straight while reading the pattern & knitting. Much easier on the back.

    How's the MS3 coming along? It's my very first lace project.
