Somewhere between Winter & Spring
It reached 50 degrees yesterday. The snow is melting so fast! My garden is almost bare ground today. There's been enough of a warm breeze to help dry out the sucking mudpits known as the driveway. I'm sleeping with the bedroom window open at night. The songs of sweet spring birds as they build nests and start families fill my ears in the morning. It's about damn time.
Re: the Wren....I started on the back last night and am at about 6 inches..almost the last of the waist shaping decreases. But I have a "funny looking" indentation (on the right side) and a ridge on the wrong side, just above the needle size change. It's wanting to flip the ribbing up. I've dampened it and "think" it will block out...but if it doesn't, the whole back will need to be ripped out and reknit. Funny, this didn't happen on the fronts. Maybe my tension was screwed up...maybe it's the width of the piece....please knitting goddess let it block out....but if it doesn't....hey, it's only string and can be reknit..right? right?
Have a great knitterly day!
