This week was one of those "life happens" weeks for me. Blah, Blah, Blah, I've been sick, Blah, Blah, Blah so my heart hasn't been in my projects. I've learned that if my heart isn't into the project that I should just set it aside because negative emotions and, in the case of knitting, tighter stitches occur. So...I understand when you don't share for weeks at a time. Life Happens.
I had started the week off right and did work a bunch of rows in my top down sweater. I sat through another class at YLYS with Kelly, who is an amazing teacher, as she showed the other ladies in the class how to knit the neck (for the lady who knitted everything but the neck) and how to knit the sleeves ( for everyone else but me). I'm not at either place. I'm a slow knitter so I sat there and KKKKKKKKKKK KFB KFB KKKKKKKK . Ok, if your not a knitter you don't understand that K means Knit and KFB is Knit to the front and Knit to the Back which creates an increase. If I were a thin woman my increasing would be done but, alas I'm not! The worst part of this is that YLYS (Your Local Yarn Shop) is closed for the holiday and guess what I completed last night? Yup, I'm at the point where I can start my sleeves but I'm here at the farm and they are closed so I will spend the weekend working on some other project when what I really want is to work on my sweater. Argh!
So...share your adventures in Fiber Arts. Share the good, the bad and the awesome.
