It’s coming along okay except for when I got cocky and decided to ignore the suggestion to use a row counter, and just kept trying to refer back to the written pattern. I ended up frogging several inches.
Now I’m being cocky again — I’m still not using a row counter, AND I’m not even referring to the written pattern — just following how the stitches are supposed to go by knowing where I am in it. This is working MUCH better actually. It’s not like it’s ROCKET SCIENCE, the ribbing just undulates.
I also visited A Mano Yarn in Mar Vista. I really like this little shop — the owners/workers are very friendly and the shop has a nice selection of yarns — including Socks that Rock and Malabrigo. I bought two more skeins of Malabrigo (again, will I ever knit a scarf for myself??) in Sealing Wax red,
Oh — here’s a pic of my new knitting tote!
