Sad Tale

I just got off the phone with Beth. She's at our house cleaning the floors and boxed herself into the kitchen. She had a few minutes to kill until the floor was dry so she called me in the store.

The conversation started out with "It sucks when you aren't living with the knitting expert. You can blog about my woes today. I'm sure others can relate." Beth and the dogs are living at my parents while they are in Myrtle Beach. She started a cowl the other night and didn't like how it was going. She tried to take it back but that didn't work so she ripped it out and started again. She didn't like that attempt either so she took it out and set the yarn aside. Last night she started something new. She was debating between 84 and 96 stitches. By mistake she cast on 94. The first pattern row didn't work out so she tried to take it back. She said that I was lucky that she didn't call me at midnight as she was casting on again.

In the next week or so there will be another book coming from Rowan.
Rowan Restyle is quite simply a different perspective. The concept is to show how garments taken from the Rowan archive can look completely different.By restyling with a relaxed casual approach and adding key pieces of jewellery or accessories a fresh modern look can be created.

The Beth saga continues. She just brought me lunch and while she was here she packed two boxes for me to ship out on Monday. That was expensive. 4 balls of yarn and an Addi turbo needle.

I was able to get a few more rows knit on my Chateau cowl today. Football is on now and there is another game to follow. I'll get some more knit tonight.
