So ......... I was Happily working on the Park Hoodie and doing the left side... All the while I kept looking and looking and noticing that the cables just were not right ??? I checked and I was doing them with the correct Twist But ???

Then last night I started the Right Side and I saw that there were two purl stitches before and after the cables that I did not do in the left side... Duhhhhhhhhhhhh !!! Of Course there has to be purl stitches so that the cable stands out....

Darn it!!!!! Now I have to do the left side over again but I am really Happy that I finally found out what was wrong... I am doing the cables with the No Cable Needle Method and I thought thats why they looked different... Glad that is not the reason because I love Cables now that I am not using a third neelde !!!!
So On ward I go ( or should I say Backward I Go ) to 'TINK" the left side and reknit it again correctly!!!

Juliet Finished

I finally put the loops and buttons on My Juliet and I closed it in the front instead of open like the pattern. Now it looks more " Finished "
This is for Allie My 13 year old GD and I did the small in a worsted weight instead of a bulky.. As I said in an earlier post... I also had to increase the armhole ..

A Quilt that I have been making for My GD.
You can not see it too well but there are cute little Victorian Girls in it...
I am very new to The Quilting World so bare that in mind... :)
I stippled it all over ( I think thats what you call it) Now that was the Fun part... :)
I was very excited when I finished it because it really feels like a REAL Quilt... :) uh hum.. * A Little Pat on My Back*

Projects May 2008

I didn't want you to think I was slacking up on my knitting so I took some pics of some of the projects I am working on... Last week I also quilted my quilt together.. I just have to sew the binding over and then I will post it !!!

This Pink and White Sweater is a Sirdar Pattern from an all white sweater but I had to give it some "zip" so I used Two Colors... Its also Pretty in the white but I got bored making white sweaters lately!
This will be for Paige ( My 4and 1/2 Yr Old GD)

This is a Blanket in Light Sage that I started for My Daughter Terrys New Baby which is due the end of this Month... As soon as Baby arrives ..Then I will get busy knitting for a Boy or Girl!!!

This is The Merry Cardigan.. A small version of the Arwen Cardigan... The Cables take a while to do but I love the look of it... It has a hood and that also has the cables around it!

The Irish Hiking Scarf which I feel like I have had on needles Forever... I do a little and then move on to another project... Hummmmmmm.... Do you think I have A.D.D. ????
Hopefully this will be finished for one of this years Christmas Gifts... So thats a Good Thing... I hve a Christmas Gift going.... I already finished one Alpaca Scarf for Christmas... Woopee... I am started on My Gift Giving!!!

This is "Juliet".. The Pattern's discussions are in Ravelry.....
It is an adult vest like top which I was making downsized for my 13 year old GD.... I still have to do the loops and the buttons...
I used a worsted weight instead of bulky because I didn't want it to be Bulky :)
Now that I tried it on I am thinking that it is way to small for her.. Me thinks I downsized too much!!! Duh !!!!
So now I need a smaller girl for it to fit.... It might fit my 8 year old GD but I am not sure if the sleeve hole is big enough... It was snug on my arms but them I have fat Grandma arms so maybe this is all just my figuring and maybe its all wrong... I'll make the button loops and sew on the buttons and just send it off to Buffalo... I has to fit one of my three Grandaughters... Right!!!
