About The Project
I think the repetitiveness of the pattern actually helped my tendonitis. I noticed – for the first time – my right knitting hand needle hitting my left hand middle knuckle on the purl, which kinda ouched! ? It’s always something… ?
I saw how the designer blocked to the curve. I chose to block straight because I hate pin-blocking. Once again, I demonstrate my own poor-boy blocking method:
I especially liked the ones with the wheelbarrow and dolly photo bomb…imaginations of my hunky farmer husband working out in the fields/barn while I knit, cook and clean at home. ?

Before I start this section, let me take a look at the pictures I captured…
The color/sheen seems gone after delicate hand-washing and sun-weight blocking. Of course the featured photo has been color enhanced; all other photos are only color corrected.
I suppose I am just too tired to be even typing right now…upon second review after color correction, the colors appear more muted in daylight than they probably would inside the warm ambiance of my orange room. The colorway just reminded me of the succulent that inspired me to purchase this colorway. Ha! I am even impressed with my styling, how the two angles juxtapose over the chest.
About The Pattern
Here Be Water Dragons by Quinton Lime
As much as those p2tog tbls were a pain in the neck, I thought the designer took excellent notes for her pattern. I think I only found one thing that I might correct, but just did through my own experience, which seems to be increasing. I do have questions, though, about stitch choices.
Easy to follow. Repetitive. Quick knit.
