I know everyone is probably so much farther along than me but I was just proud to make it through the first 13 row repeat. lol This scarf made a very valiant attempt at kicking my behind. We finally called a truce and this is my first day of knitting. I frogged only once...cuz I missed one stupid stitch at the stupid beginning and had to frog the stupid thing and start over.
I decided to go up a needle size for the cast on (US size 6) and then intended to go back to the size 5 but I like the look of the 6's so much I just kept on knitting. I wasn't entirely satisfied with the look of the scarf on 5's anyway and I have to say...I like this look much better.
I'm using KnitPicks Gossamer in Sunrise. This is the first time I have knitted with a lace weight yarn and it took me a little getting used to...I think I have the hang of it now. Let's hope so anyway. lol
This is my youngest daughter, "Ms Thang" trying her best to make me want to take the kitty home. Two little kittens have taken up residence at my sister's house and being the animal lover she is, my daugther carried this kitty around all afternoon except for the time she spent playing with my nephew or the dog. Yeah, the kitty is cute but we have so many animals already. I'll keep you posted...we seem to have a habit of taking in animals.
