I'm managing a row or two of knitting once in a while. The Baby Surprise Sweater is as much fun and I remembered.
My favorite line at a confusing part of the pattern?
"Work will start to look very odd, indeed, but trust me, and PRESS ON."
And you do have to trust the pattern. At this point in time, I have no idea which part of the sweater I'm knitting. I could figure it out, but where would be the fun in that.
I'm currently on row 33. (At least the way I count the rows. Ms. Zimmerman wrote in paragraphs, not numbered rows.) The pile of knitting looks like this:
Not a great photo, but you can get an idea of the blop of knitting it is.
I grabbed some yarn from Wallyworld. It's OK for acrylic, but it's still a little squeaky. I need to touch lots of blue. The stripes are more fun if the contrast is greater than these colors.
I'm going to go visit my favorite blogs while I have a minute. Hope to talk to you soon.
