OTN...

 
 
 


I've restarted this pattern (Pincha shawl)...for the third, possibly fourth time!
For various reasons, I just could not "get it going" the other times I tried it...
I kept messing up - and having to start over.  And then found out I was doing the wrap and turns wrong - arghhh!   Aside from that...I didn't care for the yarns I was trying out on it - each time I started over!  So I set it aside for awhile. Then finally got out last week and found some yarn I love and it is working out perfectly for it!  I write up all the patterns I knit onto index cards - row by row.  And this one, I did the same - I have every single solitary row written down - even the repeats of certain rows!  And I'm slowly knitting along, with no issues - so far!  Keeping my fingers crossed as I really love this pattern!
 The book is one I'm re-reading - it is non-fiction. I recently bought the sequel. So once I finish my re-read of this one, I will get started on it!  I love books that take place in Paris!

Paula,

I've never been to Paris - but have always wanted to go... but they would have to drug me up good and throw me on the plane! ha!
