“It’s been seven hours and fifteen days…
Having made When Doves Cry, a knit bias shawl, I am loving the construction and wanted to make another of my own design.
On my first attempt I was starting with a k1, yo, but that did not make joining new colors any easier, so I switched sides and began with K the whole row and ending with a k2tog at the end (beginning side). This made new color add a little easier to manage, not so loose.
I have completed my first garter stitch section and have begun a yo, k2tog lace pattern, which I have also just completed. The next section with be a continuous garter section of the leftovers of the colors used so far. After that, back to black, though in what stitch has yet to be determined.
Ugh! I already noticed a mistake in the lace, but I am not tinking or frogging back.
“And I don’t even know the time of day; I guess it doesn’t matter any way…
“If you want the things you love, you must have showers…
“Although I might be laughing loud and hearty, deep inside I’m blue…

Destination: Charity; Pattern: Garter Stitch Baby Jacket by Nancy Elizabeth Munroe; Size: 0-6 Months
Looks like I needed someone to “show me” about tension…ugh! I love the colors and the blocking!
Easy pattern, no seaming. I was using aluminum DPNs on the sleeves, but after the second time falling out, I switched to circulars. Too bad, because now I have a seam at the needle joins. Oh well, at least one is under the arm.
Oh, and I am missing the neck button.

Brokenhearted by K. D. Lang
I have been told – twice now – that this cowl looks very christmassy. While I have to admit that it does, I named it Brokenhearted because that is how I was feeling during the knit.
Dimensions: 11-inch diameter x 20-inch height
Ever since this cold weather set in, I have needed more protection while crocheting/knitting so I decided to make a longer cowl that I could pull up over my head.
Knit in garter.
