I really dislike Utub.
But I dislike people online being manipulated for political and commercial ends into believing conspiracies and completely illogical things which harm them and everyone else, too.
So watch this very cute video, and share it with people you love.
As promised, pictures! The top-left photo is the tiny stripes #cardigan being blocked. On feature I had not discovered before blocking is that the #sweater is reversible - a different look on the inside, but without any seams!
The grey pull-over sweater is the final result of modifying a pattern from a #knit-flat to an in-the-round, seamless. It was not quite a success, but I know how I plan to fix some of the problems.
Yesterday I went to the #LYS to pick up a replacement set of dpns (one of the cats, Tortue, loves to steal them one at a time and lose them under things, where I discover them every blue moon or so when I actually clean thoroughly.) I bought *nothing*else!* I was pretty proud of myself.
On my way back the store called to say a book I'd reserved a year ago came in. So today I get to go back and test my resistance to #stash temptation again.
Okay, so, the cut went fine. The first #steek went fine. The second steek I somehow ended up working the 4th stitch instead of the 3rd stitch, and things started unraveling. I have no idea how to fix this.
So I am just going to chalk this up to experience, hand it off to the recipient once I finish learning on it, and plan on completing a second one RSN.
I have effectively lost two days of #knitting.
While I would like to pack up a bag of yarn and sticks and go find someplace warm and quiet for a couple of days, it will have to wait a bit longer.
Ugh. Trying to make a sleeve in reverse of the instructions and from picked-up stitches is a bit mind-bending.
Brain yoga for #knitting.

Grr! Maths are hard. 'wide-enough' should be 20-25 cm. Why did I double this in my head? I have no idea.
