I’m planning on wearing this year’s birthday sweater (Chaleur) on Saturday, so I’ve got to keep moving. I’m about 9 inches in now (knitted bottom up). This is how I keep myself going — watching Midsomer Murders on Netflix, and drinking good coffee while I work. There’s something relaxing about following a pattern as opposed to writing one.
I still have to take notes as I go, though, even when I’m following the pattern. This pattern is, so far, relatively easy to follow, but I have had to pre-read (and re-read) a couple of times. I make myself a little guide to help me follow along and mark off the rows I’ve finished:
Also, I got a manicure on Saturday. Happy Monday!
