Saturday was a fairly decent day so we ran some errands in the nearby town. This is an underground spring. I remember stopping here when I was Girly's age for a nice cold drink of water. There are years when it is quite dry that the water is just a small stream coming out of the pipe. This is one of those years where the cover over the top of the spring is bursting water nearly all the way around.
Our back yard is looking much like it does right after the snow melts on a year with a lot of snow. The lakes are extremely high. I wanted to go out this afternoon and take some pictures of the local docks and walkway under water, but guess what.
It was raining this afternoon.
One thing the rain does bring about is indoor time to knit. The baby sweater is now finished. I used a baby pattern with a collar and just didn't knit it as long as the pattern called for then, made up the difference with a cabled band knit separately and sewn on. I really like how it turned out and the buttons (from my LYS) are the perfect finishing touch.
This sweater (Strax - Lopi 25) started so long ago had been out of hibernation too. I took it out, looked it over and decided that since the Mr. has lost so much weight (he went from a 43" waist to a 32" waist - just stopped eating junk and drinking Diet sodas), it isn't going to fit him anymore.
Also, I never liked this obvious change in direction that going from knitting through the back loop in the round to knitting through the back loop flat made. I really need to remember to wrap my yarn differently to avoid this.
So, you know what happened next. I refuse to waste perfectly good yarn on something that will look like crap once done. I will cast on again, I just need to find a smaller cable needle this time and remember to wrap differently. Must remember that.
