After ripping out the 24 or so rows of cable work, it's back on track and looking so much better.
The pattern has you build this traveling cable on a stockinette background which doesn't work with this yarn. My modification has added purl stitches in along the edge of the traveling cable and also on the inside sections.
Here is a little story to hopefully brighten your day...
Last night as I was talking with my mum on the phone, Miss Mac suddenly is pleading for my attention.
MM: I was wiping my butt.
Me: Excuse me mum, MM has accomplished the act of wiping. (It's the Big Issue in our house)
MM: It wont go down the hole.
Me: Wait... what was that?
MM: I was going potty. I wipe my butt. It wont go down.
Me: Mom, I have a poo situation at hand and have to go... (hang up phone)... Now, MM what is this all about. (as I walk towards the bathroom).
MM: See it wont go in the hole. (as she points her finger at the ever increasing water level in the toilet then proceeds to flush again)
Me: Oh Crap (yes literally) Where the Hell is the Plunger?????
Total hysteria hits the house as Eric and I frantically search for the plunger that should be right. there. next. to. toilet. Yes, my evening was then left with sanitizing the bathroom and running a load of funky bathmats. sigh. My plans of going to bed early were tossed out with the toilet water. So when in doubt knit.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
