This Post Brought To You By The Number Three

We are enjoying a Monday holiday today. I love a three day weekend. I spent the weekend catching up on things I don’t particularly like to do. There was cleaning-yuck! Then I spent time tinking back on the shawl. I don’t like tinking back on a project that has k2tog and kfb at the end of rows. They aren’t easy to remove. I got the rows, there were three, undone and reknit.

I rewarded myself by completing the first section of the third clue of the Secret Handshake Cowl MKAL. Maybe last today I’ll get to the second section.

Then I did three rows of the baby blanket which required adding the third skein of yarn. I had thought four skeins would be enough to complete the blanket but now I’m thinking five. This is making me a little nervous since the baby is due next month and I haven’t reached the halfway point. I’m going to have to reorder my knitting priorities.

How’s your weekend? Did you get to get some things done? Did you get some crafting in?

    Number 3 is a great sponsor! I did lots of hand quilting, am ready for another page of the Psalm 23 book, and had a long but good book recital rehearsal with a dedicated 6th grader who is going to do great next Saturday! Today I am having 2/3 of the piano students over in two groups for a performance class out on the front lawn. The sun is shining, and we will have hot cider, I think it will work! No private lessons for them means I have extra crafty time is week!

    Since we work from home here there’s no three day weekends but OTOH sometimes we can just take time whenever we need it..well sort of. We have to have a keep faithful to out own priorities but ykwim. Anyway this weekend I got in a smallnamount of knitting, just my sock in progress. I also cleaned the house on Saturday. Today though is a regular day, school lessons for the 10 and 15 year olds. We homeschool. I need to do some catching up on business record keeping and taxes. My handy husband will probably get back to work in the shop, working on more products for the website and hopefully festivals next year.

    Now that you have reworked the shawl, the pattern is developing beautifully. I had a great weekend. I actually finished a hat and I am ready to seam a cardigan. I feel so good!

    Oh my, flashbacks hit me when I read your title. We were a HUGE Sesame Street watching family 45 years ago! That shawl is so pretty. I am loving the edge on it. Tinking back any ‘special’ stitches is a pain in the arse. Looks like you did just fine though. Why do babies insist on coming before their hand knits are completed! My God Daughter arrived 2 days after I finished her baptismal gown and hat. It was a close call!

    I’m finally on the last leg of my granny square blanket, It took me eight days to seam, another three days to do the border. I can’t wait to put it on the bed.

  7. All that work was worth it. I spent part of the weekend knitting a cowl, then realized I made a rookie mistake. The knitting was twisted when joined in the round. I checked several times, but missed it. Spent some time frogging and looking for a new pattern. I wasn’t enjoying it that much, now feel it’s cursed.

  8. All I had to do was finish toe on my granddaughters second sock and graft together the toe on the first sock when I discovered why my stitch count was off by one stitch on the first sock. I dropped a stitch way, way, way down on the heel. Since that stitch was on the bottom of the foot, any tacking of that stitch would feel like a lump. So I picked up that stitch all the way up to the toe area and ripped back to redo the toe of that sock. And there it still sits waiting for me to knit the toe. Again. I want to have good knitting vibes in this pair as I don’t want my granddaughter to have any ill feelings when wearing the socks.

    I didn’t get as much stitching in as I liked, Friday I almost knit an entire hat, but the game ended too soon and I didn’t finish the crown! LOL. Glad you have a nice new furnace! Bring on the cold.

  12. I love the number three! I also finished the third clue of the Secret Handshake and now I’m back to knitting on one of my three other projects while I ignore the start of the Stephen West MKAL, for which I have organized THREE different yarn combinations. The West shawl uses 5 skeins of yarn and I don’t want to commit any of my yarn until I know exactly what the project is going to look like, because these West MKALs are pretty darn intense and there is a lot of yarn involved, and the finished product is going to be kind of a work of art.

    I also was very bad and ordered some more yarn from Hue Loco, which was exceptionally bad as I also ordered yarn from Loopy Ewe the week before. If I keep with the theme of three I should do a little more ordering in the next day or so…
