Now to the adventures of Blogless Pat. I picked my sweater. It's Ditto from Berroco. Of course I'm just using a worsted weight yarn. So then trying to be good I knitted swatches for gauge. Then I decided on my needle size. But of course I didn't have one of the needle sizes as a circular needle. So for the ribbing I cast on 302 stitches on straight needles. Needless to say it's been an adventure. I frogged it twice after only knitting about two or three rows. Then I somehow got turned around and one side of the ribbing was wider then the other!! Well I got that straightened out and now I'm working on my 2 1/2 inches of ribbing. Just to let you all know that I'm probably not going to be at knitting on Thursday nights for awhile. I've sort of become a part-time band parent. My oldest niece has joined marching band and we've divided shuttling her back and forth to practice and band camp. She has also volunteered me to sew flags for the color guard. This should be interesting. Well, I'll keep my posts knitting related in the future.
