Thank you for the get well wishes. I am feeling more human and no one else has come down with it. Maybe it was something I ate. I’m still limiting myself to Jello and ginger ale for now.
I didn’t knit at all on Friday. This is my progress on the cowl as of Thursday evening. The needle, a size bigger than the pattern calls for, is driving me crazy. It’s an old Boye and I’ve tried everything to get it to relax. It isn’t happening. When I get enough rows knit it will be more cooperative.
Did you catch the part about the needle being a size larger than the pattern calls for? I hope it doesn’t bite me on the ass but I don’t have the recommended size or the size smaller. It’s a cowl, a teeny bit bigger/looser shouldn’t be a big problem. If I’m in denial don’t tell me.
This is how the cowl looked Thursday evening when it was time to knit. I had messed up the corrugated rib and had to tink back a row and a half. So things haven’t been going smoothly so far but I’m back on track.
