Remember the fun I had with my little niece and a world of yarn…
Well it was all for a little photography challenge as part of the Knitting and Crochet blog week. Ok, I didn’t complete the full week, oops, but, you kind people thought my photo was worthy of enough votes to go through to the ‘next stage’. There are 10 pictures that have gone through to the final round and boy are there some clever people out there! You can check out all the finalists here, and if you feel like my photo still stands above the rest please vote for me! Thank you!!
Unfortunately I have had another slow week with Uhura and my work with the girls over at the tops, tees and tanks KAL at luvinthemommyhood. I am excited that I did manage to get my project on the flight home though, and worked whilst I watched one of the numerous monotonous inflight movies. But I came to a stop when I didn’t have a measuring device.
I have completed one side of the upper back and am worried that my measurements are off. The pattern states that I should work the last few rows until the armhole is 7 1/2 inches. I am currently at 8 or 9… and I’m not sure how that happened. I wonder what you decipher from the following photos what you would call for the actually arm hole… … sorry about the scrumpled just-out-of-a-bag knitting. I realise that it for sure it is probably from the top of bust band to the shoulder seam, but as often in my knitting I’m trying to fudge reality!! Perhaps 1/2 inch isn’t really all that much to get worked up on. My gauge was spot on, but I only did a swatch in stockinette stitch, not in the lace pattern. In your experience do you think that could have been so different?
I had initially thought that we had plenty of time on this KAL that that I might finish two tops – YEA RIGHT!? I’m now thinking that May 18th is a wonderful deadline and I am gonna hit it right on the head. [I will save my Umbrellas plans for the Summer Sweater KAL – I know! Another amazing KAL!]
