Hello...seems like forever since my last post. Didn't mean for that to happen. Sometimes my knitting is going slowly, and I feel like I don't have much to talk about. Kind of some of those quiet days, you know?
Actually, it's been sort of a quiet weekend, but I don't mind at all. We had some cloudy days here in the Puget Sound area, and a bit of rain, but today the sun is out and glorious. So Danny and I went and washed the car (got "the works"!), shopped for some pants (didn't find any) and had some lunch. Just a nice day. The rest of the time this weekend and this afternoon has been spent trying to figure out and execute the border for Pi.
I was going to use the Cockleshell edging found in the book Knitting Around, by EZ. So, I posted questions I had about doing a knitted on border, etc. on the wonderful yahoo group that I've mentioned before..."Elizabeth's Year". Lots of helpful answers. Then, sitting down to test the pattern, I could NOT make it come out right. Something about the final row. It seems to stop in the middle of the row and leave you hanging. I checked Schoolhouse Press for corrections and couldn't find any to do with the Cockleshell Edging. Since I had been surfing online for edging patterns I had printed one out that I had found at Knitting-and.com. It is called Kilgorie edge and is very pretty. Looks very much like the Cockleshell, but the instructions were complete. (perhaps the instructions in the book were complete, too, but I couldn't figure them out) Anyway, here is a picture of my edging so far:
And another: Kind of blurry at the edges, but you can see what I'm after, right? I've completed 6 repeats...only 30 to go...sigh.
