I have CONQUERED the KITCHNER















This started out as a very sad story. I finished this lovely Kimono Sweater in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK about two months ago. The day after finishing it I wore it and ripped a hole in it. It ended in triumph! I pulled out about three inches of the two affected rows, re-knit one of them, then kitchnered the two 'live' rows together. A little blocking and think no one will ever be the wiser. A Friday night well spend as the Duke studies with friend in the kitchen (yes, it's sick, it's now midnight and they are still at it.)
As a side note I got domestic in the kitchen today (explaination: I had the whole day off!) Steak kabobs on the barbie, baked potatoes, and yummy, yummy, yummy grilled mushrooms. Study friend (mentioned above) rounded out the meal with some sort of sinful peacan pastry thing- very good.

  1. That is a lot of work and yarn. Can't wait to see it in person.

  2. Hello
    What are you going to do with a long sweater in Seattle?
    I am so excited to know you fixed the swester. Please be more careful in the future while floating around.
