Yarn Along: Over to Candleford...
Though this picture looks cheerful, it was not a good week for knitting. I knit furiously finish the last 2-and-a-half inches so that I could divide for the sleeves on my Tea Leaves Cardigan only to find that I had misread the pattern and one side was enormous (as in 50 stitches were added to each row). Thankfully I had the presence of mind to go to the knitting shop for advice and frogging help (or else, I would have just ripped everything out and started again... which would have been the end for this cardi.). Monika got me back on track and I am mostly over having to frog a week's worth of work. The bright side is that each row takes much less time since it is now the right size!
I have two chapters left in Over to Candleford (which is the second book in Lark Rise to Candleford) and am really enjoying it! The little ones and I finished all of the Ramona books last week, so now we are listening to the Henry Huggins books and are all enjoying them so much!
