P is for

perfectionist. i was going to say persnickety until i looked up the meaning online.

river's instructions tell you to use the lace cast on, so i used sharon miller's cast on in her heirloom lace book. knit knit knit. get ready to cast off. i wanted them to match, so i doodled with ez's sewn cast off, i think the match pretty well.

'Cause we just started it, like, 5 seconds ago and I forgot to tell you? Hi Vanessa! We've been enjoying your blog since last year after finding out you have a Betty wheel AND a fern sweater in the exact same color as Peggy's. You're one of the inspirations for us to start our own blog. So we're here, we're being silly with it and so far it's a kind of sweaty fun. I'm sure I'll get better at navigating the Blogger system sometime in the next few years! See you in February? Hope so!

Nice cast-on/cast-off.

As for the nutcase, my brother's ex called him a lot and left him threatening messages, but as far as I know never did anything like that. Wow, scary.

That's a great cast off. I have to remember it. Looks like you have been working hard to keep your mind off things. River looks amazing, have fun at the block party.

I love how that matches - beautiful! Yep, definite perfection :) Can't wait to see Rivers blocked, the stitches are so clear pre-blocking it is sure to be a stunner.

Now that *is* perfection, the cast on and cast of match so well and I bet they're really stretchy. More River please.
