A Short Knitting Break
These are the first 2 pattern repeats of my christening gown. I have to say, casting on 187 sts took quite some time. Especially when I finished and realized the pattern said use "two needle method." Needless to say, I hadn't. Other than that, no problems yet.
After all this knitting, I decided to take a break. This weekend is the annual Soybean festival in Martin. (Stop laughing, I know I live in the south.) They close mainstreet and set up rides, funnel cake stands, etc. I went mostly for the library sale. You pay $10 for a tote bag and they have tables and tables of books to fill them up with. I filled my bag with Alfred Hitchcock, political history, and, of course, knitting. Lots and lots of stitch patterns from the 70's.
This monday starts my vacation! DH has to work all week, so I'm visiting my family in Nashville. It seems like months since I've seen my parents. I miss them terribly. In addition to spending much needed time with them there will likely be a trip to Threaded Bliss. If I don't post next week, It's because I'm having too much fun.
