my weekender

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

So, I'm in Chesterton, Indiana with my Andrew for a golf tournament and for some reason I was reminded of my Weekender sweater.  You see, I have had some issues with it.

For those of you not familiar with the Weekender sweater, this is what it should look like.  The slipped stitch seam down the center of the front and the back is what is particularly appealing to most.  And, quite honestly, what makes this sweater special.
The sweater is worn on the purl side, but is knit on the knit side.  Andrea did this because most of us prefer the knit stitch over the purl stitch.  (Yes, definitely me!) So, when you are finished knitting, you just flip it purl side out.  However, when I was knitting mine, I alternated the balls of yarn to prevent pooling.  (Turns out that was unnecessary as there wasn't any pooling.)  And I ran my yarn inside (on the purl side) and that was the RIGHT side of the sweater.  ðŸ¤¦‍♀️ I didn't realize this until I was separating for the sleeves.  I decided to just leave it and wear this one so that the knit stitch would be the right side of the sweater.  (Confused yet?)
So here it is before I blocked it. (Knit side out.) I was pretty happy at this point.  I tried it on, it fit nicely.  I decided it would be one of those sweaters I can wear a lot.  I have been wanting a navy sweater so the color is pretty much perfect.
Last week while visiting my sweet mom, I had some time to block it.  I thought drying it in the Florida sunshine would be nice.  Well, Malibrigo Rios is superwash.  And superwash yarn grows.  So, from the washing machine to the dryer it went.  It was reverted to the original size and all was well.  However, it wasn't.  Because, a hole was found in the front of the sweater where the yarn broke somewhere in the process. 😫 I have never had this happen before.   It's currently sitting in time out until I decide what to do. (Chances are I will probably see if I can mend the hole.But I may consider ripping it out. )
In the meantime... I"ll work on a pair of socks.  ☺️

  1. Oh I am so sorry to hear about the trials and tribulations of your Weekender sweater. Timeout sounds like a great option right now. Sometimes you just try to do everything right and it doesn't work. Hope you don't have to rip out. Best Wishes.

  2. How upsetting for you. At least it's in something dark. I have a navy linen dress I bought at a huge discount because it has two tiny holes in the front. Nobody ever notices them, and I really have to look. It has worn well also. Give your sweater another bath after you mend it and I bet matters will be much improved.

  9. I HAVE MY EX BACK
    Many people have wrote articles of how they were helped by a spell caster but I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Monika Simun. When i came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as DR ISIKOLO helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don't know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but i always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex, contact this great spell caster at his Whatsapp +2348133261196 or email isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com and share an awesome testimony too just like me

  10. My Ex and I broke up 1 year and 2 months ago and i was six months pregnant. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work. If you have any kind of problem disturbing you in life, you have to contact this powerful spell caster! He can help you. He will not disappoint you, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Here’s his contact: Email him at: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also Whatsapp him on +2348133261196

  15. After being in relationship with him for seven years, he broke up with me. I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain. I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him and I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster DR ISIKOLO that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it. I mailed the spell caster and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before two days that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me and I was so surprised so I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or his WhatsApp/Viber him on: +2348133261196

  17. This is the website I read about Doctor Ilekhojie and contacted him to help me get my ex boyfriend back to marry me during the month of May this year and I have come back here to post about him. Doctor Ilekhojie will help you solve your problem no matter what you are going through. Posting about a spell caster is very strange to me because I never believed i will be able to say that I was helped by a spell caster in bringing my ex boyfriend back to me after 3 years of no contact. I read about Doctor Ilekhojie from other websites and contacted him to help me and in less than 48 hours my ex boyfriend called me and I was happy that he wants to get back to me. We met on Friday and he proposed to me,... It was the most beautiful ring.

  18. I like to share a testimony of marriage and love life. My husband and I have been married for over 15 years. We met when I was 22 and he was 27 years old. We had a lot of emotions together. There were several huge fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Suddenly, my husband pronounced a divorce on me, I was blind! I did not see him coming, I did not recognize the signs. He stopped wearing his wedding ring and I did not think about it. He does not find me sexually attractive anymore. I could not help crying all the time because I was extremely hurt. I was totally depressed until I discovered Dr. AJAYI, the caster from Africa, whom everyone was talking about online and I was contacting him for a love spell. During our conversation, he assured me that he would bring back my husband less than 48 hours after the launch of his spell. It seemed impossible to me. You will not believe that my husband called after 24 hours, begging me to forget everything he said about the divorce. I was totally surprised! There is so much love in my family since I used his spells. He is wonderful and his spells work so fast. Now, my husband loves me much more than before. You can also contact him if you have problems with your marriage or relationship. E-mail: drajayi1990@gmail.com You can also him Whatsapp him on +16318578318

  21. The only true spell caster that can help you win a lottery is the GREAT DR. ISAAC. I never believed in lottery winning through spells until I met Dr. Isaac who helped me to cast a spell for the winning numbers of the lottery I just won. I just needed to share the testimony of how I won $100,000 with the help of Dr. Isaac. One very day I checked up on spell casters that have helped lots of people because I was tired of losing lotteries. So I found the extraordinary spell caster people kept talking about but I still had doubts about the possibilities of winning through spells. However, I contacted him and he told me the necessary things that needed to be done and assured me of gaining great wealth from the lottery as long as I had faith in the power of his gods. After casting the spell he told me I was going to get my numbers in less than 24hrs. Those numbers I got are what has gotten me where I am right now. Invested the money from the lottery and I must say life is way better for me. Dr. Isaac is a gifted human being who is fully blessed to help others who are in need. I'll advise everyone reading this to contact this amazing spell caster. Email zulusangoma@mail.com

  22. I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband. so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited. drajayi1990@gmail.com. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing
    statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly,my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was
    how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any kind of problem, Please i will advice you to contact DR AJAYI, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you solve your problems..
