you throw like a girl

The sun is finally out! It has been raining here for the past week and last night the wind really went into high gear and the skies opened up. I kept checking to see if the house had sprung any leaks, but it remained water tight.

Before I turn my attention to the leaves & pine needles in the yard, I thought I’d take a quick moment to show you the Stacy Pullover. I did indeed rip out those 48 rows, which took it back to the ribbing stitch. I changed to smaller needles, and am now getting gauge and am almost to the underarm decreases (again!). The yarn is Brooks Farm Four Play that I got at Rhinebeck last year – it feels good to finally use it!

did you notice that red thing in the top picture? that is a ball chucker – a tennis ball fits into the cup on the end and when you fling it, the ball really takes off. The dog thinks you’re Babe Ruth or Hank Aaron. Mr. Poe thought the photo op was the perfect opportunity for a quick game.

did you also notice the pile of pine needles in the pop up picture? that is why I have to run ….. hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Oh man, I wish I’d had one of those when I still had Max. I not only throw like a girl, but I tend to hit breakable things.

    Ripping back the 48 rows was probably painful, but sometimes you just gotta do it. And you got gauge! I thought it was a myth.
