V s for
rogue is nearly done, it's such a perfect sweater.
at the top of the sweater cap, instead of binding off 5 stitches at the begining of 4 rows, i did the wrap and turn.
* edited- when ready to decrease, with right side facing, work til 6 sts are left on the left needle, wrap and turn so there are 5 sts left on the needle. turn and start purl row, work til 6 sts are left on left needle, wrap and turn. work 2 more rows, one knit side and one purl side, leaving 6 sts on the left needle, wrapping and turning.
next row, knit across, picking up the wraps. next row, purl across, picking up the wraps.
now you have the right side facing with the original number of sts on the needle. bind off in knit.
i love the smooth line you get with a wrap and turn. and it makes the sleeve easier to sew in.
of course, now that all that's left is the sewing up, i'm itchy.
look at the beautiful sheen of lisa souza's petal in warm gold. a lovely rich color for beadwork.
on the strauch skein winder,
and the fricke ball winder.
nice soft squishy balls. did i say that?
and a nice big swatch for beadwork.
but does beadwork get cast on? nope.
now for the weekly dinner-
2 boneless chicken breasts, these are from whole foods.
put a little butter and browned breadcrumbs on the pasta.
serve with pasta.
