Confessions of a Knit Blogger

I’ve reached the ultimate in lazy . After trying for two nights to get my stitch count correct I’m giving up. Would anyone like me to send them my pattern of for Links? Apparently I cannot follow a series of repeats and rows. The designer has been great. I got in touch and she confirmed it is my problem . Ha ha . Very nicely.

So I’ve chosen to buy Another of her patterns and start today. I have a good feeling about this one. But I have to cast on zillions of stitches and not twist. Thoughts?

I can also confess that I have reached the ultimate in shopping laziness. I have actually ordered cotton Hanes underwear on line and it will be here in less than 24 hours. Thank you Amazon.

  1. I am lazy when it comes to shawl patterns; no lace preferably pls. I really like Groozy by Annie Baker/Jumper Cables Knitting. It’s easy and back and forth stockinette and reverse stockinette panels. One repeat produces a good chunk of fabric too! Plus, the yarn I’m using is a heavier DK.

  2. It is a little-known fact that it is not necessary to join in the round immediately after casting on — that way lies madness. Knit flat for at least half an inch, then join. Sew up the little seam later using the tail from the cast on. Your life will be much happier.

  3. Ugh. I really get bugged when I see I have to cast on a ton of stitches to begin with! LOL. Sometimes, I fantasize about teaching my husband to cast on and having him do that part for me.

    That’s how deep my pathology is.

  4. I always feel guilty when my monthly subscription items from Amazon and Chewy arrive. I hate shopping but I do feel bad for the poor delivery folks who have to bring those big boxes down my driveway.

  5. I hope the next pattern makes you happier. I’m on the border of my Dahlia blanket and it should be done in the next day or two. Hope you have a super week. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂

  6. Oh, I hope this one works well for you. Patterns can be so tricky. The sweater I’m knitting for Dennis right now is dealing me fits. I’ve made it twice before. I had no trouble making it then. What is wrong with me?
    Ordering underwear on Amazon. I never thought of that. Thank you so much!
    Blessings always,

  7. My tip: Leave yourself a bit of a tail on the cast on and knit the first few rows flat. It is so much easier to join without twisting when you have a few rows that you can see.

  8. I am working on a project that is challenging me. It is a lace blanket knit in 12″ squares of lace, each in a different pattern. My counts are off more times than not (ok, maybe an exaggeration), but the yarn is a fuzzy alpaca and is very forgiving with errors in the pattern. I am determined to see it through if for now other reason than stubbornness.
