It is Monday isn’t it? Here at Casa Larj it’s a virtual den of cooties, I am still getting over my upper respiratory mayhem and at my insistence, Mr. Larj went to the urgent care clinic on Saturday only to learn that he has walking pneumonia. We’re still working through all of it but when either of us get home we just collapse. Hence the lack of knitting content.
I did manage to finish my neck warmer which is blocking in the basement and my version of the “Republic” hat which I scaled back to fit my peanut head. I still have to sew the button on the neck warmer before it’s wear ready. Pictures to come this weekend I hope, barring any relapse.
Another smaller project that I managed to finish are the gauge swatches for Mr. Greenjeans. I hate gauge swatches, I am never sure, should they be stretched? Should they lay flat? What about ribbing? It’s all too much thinking for something that is supposed to be “fun”. So as it stands the semi stretched stockinette swatch comes pretty close to the 4″ x 4″ measurement. The ribbing pattern not so much… a little smaller. So what I am going to do is make the damn thing all with the same needles size (8) and hope for the best.
Everyone have a great week and stay well!
