This is Mags, one of our dogs. This week has been so busy that I want to curl up on the couch like Mags and take a nap.
This past week I was starting to question my 12 sweaters in 2012 New Year’s Resolution. I’ve been stuck on one of the garter yoke cardigan’s that I’ve been knitting. I’ve knitted two from the same pattern but had to rip both of them back and make major modifications and re-designs. Then I got stuck on how to decrease stitches when I knit the arms. The pattern doesn’t call for decreasing stitches but I know that the arms will be much too wide if I don’t. Thankfully I was able to talk to two design-minded knitting friends last night at Stitch ‘n Bitch who were able to help me through it. I should be able to finish my first sweater of 2012 by the end of January!
