Live ~ Laugh ~ Knit

If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else.

That was my senior quote and it fit today. Sometimes patterns can be confusing and sometimes we read selectively. I often selectively read patterns and knit what I think it says.
The Gypsy Tank, although easy to knit, has become a little tedious for Lois.  She checked in to see if she reached to stated inches (and be done) only to learn that it was measured from the armhole and not the shoulder.
Diane has been cranking out her Bernat, "From the Middle "blanket.  The bad news is that her gauge loosened up and her blanket is larger than planned.  The good news is that she could start the ending border and finish the blanket before it's intended recipient is born.  Always a bonus when knitting a baby gift.
Mary brought all her projects to get sorted out.  This skein of DARE yarn is for a funky garter scarf.   It's a super bulky, one-skein wonder.
She worked the final section of her Sea Lettuce scarf knit in Blue Heron Rayon Metallic. 
Mary had taken a class with Julie at Westport Yarns.  I love how this scarf knits up in the Blue Heron yarn.  It has a beautiful shimmer and drape.  She didn't need to use the whole skein.
We talked about knitting bangles like the ones in this picture. We actually bought the bangles to do this years ago.  Now if I can just remember where I put them. 

 Elizabeth is nearly done with the back of her Vintage Pink Cardigan is knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca & Silk. 

It seems like spring cleaning knitting.
