I'm only on my second project. It's going really well. (of course, with garter stitch with a YO and no real gauge, how hard can it get?) And of course, I'm already thinking about how to modify it. I'm doing this hooded baby blanket
in Pound of Love Antique White (they didn't have Lion Organic Cotton and I wanted to start NOW!) and I'm really moving along. After two days, (after work only) I'm nearly 1/3 done. So I'm looking at it, and wondering if there's a way to put in a row of holes across the hood. Essentially it's CO 3, Row 2: k2, YO, k the rest of the row, repeat for all other rows - increasing one per row and the YO makes this lacy little border at the ends of the rows. I want the border to be along the edge of the hood as well, but those are the rows I'm knitting! I was thinking maybe k2 *YO, k2tog* k2 and then knitting the last two rows. I'm thinking of weaving a contrasting color ribbon through the border. Would that work, or am I crazy?
I'm also thinking about my next project. Who says that the fever doesn't strike hard?? I think what I like most about knitting is that it's very soothing and repetitive. I have trouble sleeping, and after a couple thousand stitches, I'm more relaxed than usual.
MUST get a Ravelry account and start browsing their patterns.... *sigh*
I've got this sense of urgency because I want to take this with me overseas for about four months, and I'm leaving in.... 5 weeks. Maybe. More later on the next project, but I'm really wondering if anybody has any ideas. I can post a picture of what my WIP looks like (I like it better - the smoother yarn really highlights the stitches) if that'd help.
