And my latest knitting project, a lace shawl! The yarn is so soft and when it's blocked, you'll see the lace pattern even more.
I love the Portuguese knitting method which I learned via YouTube's by Andrea Wong. But sometimes, I can't figure out the stitches because of the way we hold and 'flick' our yarn. It's similar to Continental but different!
I had this same issue with picking up stitches for Rilynn's pinafore. But Andrea was gracious enough to do a YouTube on picking up and knitting stitches! Which made it simple! DUH!
So now I'm playing with some practice yarn to see what Portuguese stitches I can use to replace the simple: 'K3, yo, sl2, k1, p2sso, yo, k2' for an eight repeat!
The way we knit the Portuguese 'yo' and where our yarn can be placed is what's causing me fits...I know...my readers don't care about this but I keep trying to say it out loud and even typing it makes me try to figure it out!
And look who turned 8 months old!!!
Rilynn is such a sweetheart! Just wish they lived closer! Hard to get Bob to go more than 30 miles anywhere! Wait!!! That's me too! HA But I would travel to Ohio to see this little one! She's with her bff, Boscoe!
Growing up way too fast! And bragging on Amber who made the Dean's List (College sophomore) and Nick (HS Junior), who had 2 A's and 4 B+ this report term. He's also in Advanced classes. So proud of all our kids and grands!!!
