Yarnit - Rhymes with Darnit



Do not ask me why this photo is sideways. I've tried a couple of times now and blogger keeps being stupid.
Sorry.
Just tilt your head a little and you will get the right effect.
And the paragraphs are stupid, too. Not my fault!
Moving on... This is my friend, who is an amazing crocheter. She is part of my Wednesday knitting club, even though she is crocheting, we let her in. This garment was done up like a giant doily, with arm holes left open. It really is a beautiful piece of clothing.
The other picture features my desperate face. I spent a couple of hours trying to undo this tangled piece of yarn. Longer than it takes to knit the hat my daughter wants. Finally, with some very patient untwisting, I have a nice ball of yarn. I almost had to throw the dang thing away.
I have a beautiful project to show you that I started this week. I hope, hope, hope it will fit me when it's finished. It's this lacy like a cloud shrug in a very soft, light green. I've never tried anything like it, so we'll see.
I'm also waiting on another skein of blue that I ordered in order to finish the winter sweater that just needs some ribbing around the vee neck. But the snow is melting (yay!) so I wonder if I will finish it this year. I may put it away 'til fall.
Okay, this is just an all around crazy looking post. What the heck is wrong with my paragraphs?
I'm too lazy to redo this, so I hope you can muddle through the mess. I'll try another post tomorrow, hopefully with better success.

You have WAY more patients de-tangling a naughty wad of yarn than I do! I'm looking forward to seeing your shrug.

Yeah, knitting is something I've tried and given up on many times. Now I just look at the books as they cross my desk for their respective Dewey Numbers...

And the words read fine, even if the paragraphs were wonked, but they didn't seem so bad...

Yes, show us that shrug!
