What a weird Mother’s Day this is. No one seeing anyone outside of our homes. Added to that it feels like it is still winter. I’m pretty sure I saw some snow flakes drifting down earlier this afternoon. But still, I’d like to say Happy Mother’s Day to everyone in spite of everything.
I’m continuing on with knitting for my slow stitching. I’ve finished a third pair of socks for Abbie, our grand daughter. They work up really quickly. I can do a pair for her in the space of three or four days, depending on how long I work at it. And they have the added bonus of being fairly mindless to work on, not needing a whole lot of concentration.
These still need the ends sewn in.
After I finished those socks I gave myself permission to start a new sweater from the fade sets of yarns I purchased not long ago. I did up a tension swatch.
I love this yarn colour and the flecks in it. The pattern I am doing is called Grenadine
. It is emphatically not a mindless knit. It had a new to me cast on for the neck ribbing which I really like and will probably use from now on. It also has cable stitching and increases in various rounds. I got involved in watching a program last night and forgot to do the increases in the round I was working on. So now I am in the tedious process of unknitting single cable stitches. This is what it looks like so far.
Not much to see just yet. Slow stitching goes even slower when unstitching of the stitching is required. I’m going to link to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching
and then finish the unstitching required.
