I know, I am now a header hopper. I really appreciate all of your comments about that cookie/sock header I previously had (for a short while) above. And I did like it too. However, every time I looked at it, it reminded me of colder weather. Maybe it was all the red. And the ginger. But whatever it was, I decided I needed a little spring color. And since my littlest guy still makes me joyfully happy when he picks me dandelions, I decided that I needed a photo of his lastest pick up there. And a little bit of spring. Changing headers can be quite addictive too. You all do know about Picnik, right? Especially helpful to us blogger users.
Onto the knitting. I am pretty close to finishing Ruby. I have made little progress the last couple of days trying to figure out the welt. I should have listened to Rebecca, knowing that she kept getting holes too. The pattern reads y2rn = yarn round needle twice. Isn't that just yarn over twice? I checked books. All of the on-line resources I knew. Isn't the point of a yarn over, a hole? Well, this sweater does not want holes! Anyhow, I ended up doing my own thing which gave me the amount of stitches that I needed. Marking the location of the increases and increasing 4 in each location, by a M1 and an Inc into the f/b on the first row Increase. On the second row increase, I increased into the f/b of each of the new stitches. Have you seen Rebecca's? Or Pax's? They are both fabulous. I am a bit nervous though because Rebecca used four extra balls. Pax did not, however made her sleeves shorter. I slimmed my sleeves down a bit, in hopes of not having to buy more yarn. And what a bummer it would be if I needed more as I know my store does not have the same dyelot.
I didn't intend to post this recipe, but when I cut a piece of this cookie/cake type thing for my breakfast, I noticed the heart. Of course, I had to take a photo for Noticing project's be our guest week, and thought maybe you would like the recipe.
