You may be surprised to discover (I know I was) that I kept to my word and started working on Halcyon again! Truth be told, after I finished the Retro Rib socks I had been avoiding it. I didn’t want the hassle of trying to remember where I was in the pattern – you know that whole word problem thing! I am using a magnet board to read the chart, but after sitting around for months, I didn’t trust that the magnets would still be on the correct line.
I also did away with my cable needle. I am doing some variation of cabling without a cable needle – and it has really sped things up! Yesterday I got 15 rows done. This is a land speed record for me and this pattern.
It is a busy week here at Chez Swine:
- Vicki on Thursday
- Brother and SiL on Friday
- Daughter #1’s prom on Friday
- Graduation on Sunday
- Party with about 45 guests Sunday evening
guess I should quit blogging and get to work cleaning, shopping and cooking …..
