Sometimes I'm surprised when I find out that something that looks difficult is do-able (I know that's a word, but it looks funny.) I often spend time frogging (or ripping out for you newbies) and my husband asks me how that can be fun. I am a process knitter for sure. I enjoy the process of learning a new technique and figuring it out. Row 14 was one I had to ponder on this blanket and did it wrong several times, but eventually I got it. I call this Alzheimer's prevention- challenging my brain cells to figure out a puzzle. Most of the time, if I would JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS as written, things would go right, but I always think they MEAN something other than what they say. Anyone else out there do that?
Anyway, I'm on row 27 and seeing the pattern of what is going on and am quite pleased. The Ecological Wool is a dream to knit with. I would like a sweater in this soft, squishy wool, but I must finish my blanket first. And I couldn't wait for the Olympics to cast on. Maybe I will finish this and have a different Olympics project.
