Final Marathon post of the day

Hey y’all…

Today didn’t go as planned. I think I maybe knit a total of 5 hours today. 3 of those hours were taken up doing the garter stitch on a 12×12 square. I really DO NOT LIKE the garter stitch. Seriously… For every 5 rows I completed, I think I lose a quarter inch. I finally finished that square while at the movies with my kids watching Journey 2: mysterious Island. Then, in the dark of the theatre, I bound off, and cast on my second 12 inch square. This one is being done in patchwork.

In total, I knit a bit over 5 hours, celebrated 2 birthdays at my local yarn shop, drove a total of about 3 1/2 hours, finished my square, and RAN OUT OF YARN midway through my second. So, with that… I will pack it in for the night.

I am not certain what tomorrow will hold, as it seems my Crohn’s Disease has decided to rear it’s ugly head. With any luck, I will be knitting my way through Katie’s awesome Harry Potter bag – it is my first attempt at 2 color, intarsia knitting. (I started it before Christmas. and it was supposed to be her birthday present on New Years Eve).

Thank you, Cheryl Marie, for hosting the knit marathon for us! Can’t wait to see all you’ve gotten done.

    I concur about garter stitch – it gets a bit boring just knit, knit, knit. I like the basketweave square! Thanks for joining in the marathon and I hope we can do it again in May! Great work today.
