As I was leaving a local hospital tonight, I noticed the car in front of me had vanity plates that completely explain this week's knitting attempts. The lace wrap has been ripped back to a lifeline for the fifth time, and for now, it's in time out. Now that puts a whole new spin on naughty lace. Please don't ask why I'm not putting lifelines in more frequently. I haven't a clue.
In an attempt to show the lace I mean business, I've been doing a little stealth knitting. It's the most beautiful yarn (Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds), but I'm completely befuddled knitting trinity stitch in the round. I've ripped this piece back 3 times. Twice I tried trinity stitch, but each round found me with 4 fewer stitches. If I'm adding three stitches for every three I take away, how is this happening? I know it has a simple answer, but for the life of me, I can't get it to work. Completely frustrated, I tried a slip stitch pattern and thought it was hideous, so I ripped that out too. I finally gave up and knit something with cables. I couldn't possibly mess up cables, could I? I shouldn't curse myself, but it is moving along well and should be done tomorrow. Did I tell you this yarn is stunning? Well it is. I spent the better part of last night (between yarn time outs) in the hunt for a sweater pattern for bulky yarn. The yarn gets 3 stitches to the inch on US 10.5s. Any ideas? Any tips for doing trinity stitch in the round? I'm stymied.
House Hunting Update: I was unable to see the new house today, but I have an appointment at noon on Friday. Like any girl suffering after a bad break-up, I drove past Charming tonight. I think I'm turning into a house stalker. I should see what Charming is doing Friday too. Maybe I should just go through there again before I make a rash decision and completely throw that house out of my life. Maybe we just need a little time alone.
