I have two questions for you:
- How did it get to be Friday again so soon?
- How did it get to be September? Where has this year gone?
I guess that’s really three questions.
Yesterday I started my Stained Glass Cowl. Don’t forget that those first 8 or so gray rows are waste yarn and that will all come off. The pattern isn’t hard at all . . just time consuming. The fact that there are over 500 stitches makes it take a very long time to do each row, plus my colorwork skills are awful so I go slowly.
My plan is that I’m not going to work on this non-stop. I think I would get bored if I tried that so I’m planning to work on it a little each day. I’d like to get at least 5 rows done per day. IF I can get that much done, it’s still going to take me over a month to get it done but I doubt I get 5 rows done each day. This picture was taken earlier in the day and I had 7 rows done. By the time I went to bed, I had finished 9 rows but several of those rows were solid with no colorwork.
You’ll notice I went with the orange. I kept thinking I would come up with a different color but I got so tired of thinking and debating that I just gave up and went with the orange and I’m liking it. But, get this . . The Loopy Ewe has a “monthly mixer” and for September, it’s something done in your high school or college colors. My high school colors are orange and black so this actually worked great. I love it when that happens!
