Working on the second fetching. past the wrist and working on the hand. Got distracted today trying to plan out what I want to do for a sweater for myself with the yarn mom got me for bday (after I screwed up the Stitch n' Bitch book). I want to make the sweater on the cover of Melissa Leapman's Knitting Beyond Scarves. However, I don't want it to be striped or garter stitch. (does that make me a real Knitter? changing it up but saying that's what I'm knitting?) I just like the shape of it and the book has the pattern drawn out with measurements and I am going from there with my own stitch pattern. Or at least that's the plan so I was trying out some stitch patterns today and figuring out my gauge (and which stitch patterns nicely divide into my gauge...) Anyway, most of knitting time was spent playing with the swatch.
Also, I've got a Florida friend who crochets but has carpal tunnel issues so had to stop. She's thinking of taking up knitting but worried it would aggravate it. Anyone got any ideas or experience with this?
In other news.... Mojave Sis just got herself kittens out of her tiny stray cat. Sis did not even know cat was pregnant until this past Saturday (that's on blog) and now she's got mama and baby kitties! I won't spoil and tell how many... I'm sure she'll post on the blog and hopefully with pictures! Luckily for all felines, Mojave Sis was taking excellent care of pretty Misty and so everyone seems to be healthy.
