A knitting blog with a bit of fluff and a few fins.

Ah, Spring Break!
I was going to start my Monday blogging, but I couldn't think of anything to blog about, so I didn't blog. Next week. I'll think of something to say next week. :) I'm going to visit a new yarn shop this weekend, so that'll make a great post.
Today, though, I will fill you in on what's occupying my needles! Same as last week: Bridgewater. I've been working furiously on it while waffling on the width I want the last stripe of my Different Lines to be. I finally had to put it aside so I can finish my Different Lines by Friday! On Bridgewater, I'm 10 rows into the border chart. It's not looking very impressive. I don't know if I need smaller needles or what, but it just kind of looks a mess. I'm also not sure (and too lazy to look up) how to do a psso the right way, so I've been slipping the slipped stitch knitwise sometimes and purlwise other times. the difference isn't extreme, but they all look weird. I think I'll do another 5 rows so I can look at the repeating pattern before I decide to rip it back and go down a needle size. It actually hasn't taken very long to get this far into the border, so it shouldn't be a devastating blow.
Look at my cute stitch marker! Doesn't it look like Spike? John got me three for my birthday (a while ago, I just haven't shared them). :D
For more WIP Wednesday posts, go see Tami! I hope to have a super springy scarf to show you Friday!
