I decided I didn't want to continue with the loops. Then I was reading Lorraine's blog and she mentioned that 'if you don't like to do something, try doing it better.' Thanks Lorraine! That was the smack in the head I needed! :)
I started over. I did the bottom like Magic Carpet Ride and liked it much better, plus it reduced the weight. I got this far, and decided I didn't like the bottom corners. There was a lot of design alteration I could have done, but decided I didn't want to think that hard. :)
Do it Better with Color
I got more yarn from The Woolen Rabbit (Kim).
Do I need to mention how much I love this yarn?! My favorite Merino for knitting, blocking and color (not to mention holding up after frogging multiple times and surgery).
I bought the Alhambra kit from The Woolen Rabbit (Anne Hanson's design). I have no plans for the Fiddlehead, just had to have it. I'm hoping she will have a teal soon - for what? No idea, just would love teal. :)
Red Kelp Sighting
I started another Laminaria with Alpaca with a Twist Fino - Ruby Slipper. I still love this pattern. Doing it better by using a solid color this time. Will be able to see the pattern clearer.
So, there's a lot of 'repeat knitting' going on here except for Alhambra.
I've got Spring Fever! I feel like traveling somewhere warm instead of knitting (gasp!) Seeing something new & jaw dropping. Don't want to work anymore! I want a new purse & clothes & shoes & house...!
I guess I have to try doing my LIFE better... or maybe this is my midlife crisis... Nah! Just Spring Fever.
Happy Do It Better To You! :)
