The Healthy Knitter
I actually started casting on after I took this picture. It calls for a long tail cast on of 318 stitches but in listening to The Knitting Pipeline podcast last night she mentioned she is also partaking and she opted for a knitted cast on. I got on You Tube and learned it as I had no idea how long to leave my tail for 318 stitches! I have about 200 cast on so far and she said to put a stitch marker every 50 stitches.....Brilliant! I hope I don't mess up and have to redo those 318 stitches! It's an easy pattern though from what I saw on the discussion group but then "easy" is a very relative term! LOL!
I don't know if any of you follow Katie's video podcast of Inside Number 23, but if you do, you will have seen the awesome Yarn Journal she started which I went nuts over! I want to be just like her when I grow up! She is so creative and her journal looks beautiful and so fun to work on. I've had this journal for several years and never used it as I thought it was too pretty to just do my daily journaling in but a Yarn Journal? It's perfect for that! In all honesty, I am gathering my supplies and prepping for not only my holiday food but also my activities for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Starting this Yarn Journal is on that list! She showed it in Episode 42 and then showed even more in one of her Vlogmas podcasts...Day 9 or 10? She is also very artistic!
Speaking of journaling, I need to update my Ravelry project pages too! Woe is me!
P.S. My son Ben and grandson Uriah were on the local news in Iowa!
