Allison was concerned that we took out the wrong side, last week. The pieces are alike with the exception of the edge treatments. On the back, the stitches go on a holder. On for front, there is an reverse stockinette edging. We managed it without further incident and she is back on track.
Times like these when you keep making the same mistakes, it’s best to put it down and walk away for a while. She finished the whole back, cables and all, without incident – so it’s not as if she didn’t know what she was doing. Her “wits” weren’t with her today.
Another stocking finished! I love the plaid ribbon Mallory chose and how it tied in all the colors. You may not be able to tell from the picture, the Angel has sparkly wings (as only an Angel should).
Nancy wanted to check her gauge on Women’s Hand/Wrist Warmers from the book, Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Her gauge was spot on. Next she wanted to learn how to cast on using the Long-tail method.

Terri finished the bobble square from the Building Blocks afghan and has joined the ranks of the bobble-likers.
