Slow But Sure Progress Along with a Fun Distraction ~~~
It seems like I worked quite a bit on this during the week but I'm not sure anyone would notice. Teddy's one arm is done, and all those french knots took a while. Sure am glad he's no bigger as his whole body is done with them! The baby's name and birth date goes on the mushroom. I am slowly working my way around it. The top part will have 4 rows of chain stitch and also consumes time. Six weeks and counting!
This nice diversion occupied some of my knitting time. In this photo I was part way done with Chart A but am finished with that now. My yarn is Madeline Tosh light (from the stash!) in the color Fragrant. I marked the right side with a safety pin and am also checking off the rows on the chart. I also wrote the symbols on the chart so I wouldn't have to keep flipping back and forth between pages. The yellow yarn is the provisional cast on, the first time I'd ever used one. I guess it comes out in the end when you sew those stitches together to complete the edge. It will be fun to see what the rest of you are doing with these new endeavors! Happy stitching/knitting!
