Yarn Along (no.16)

by Josée

As of tomorrow, I’m giving up daytime computer use until Easter. I’m hoping that this will free up a little extra time for knitting, reading… maybe even some simple quilting. It might be too much to hope for, especially during The Meltdown, but it’s good to be optimistic sometimes.

I sorted out the pattern issues from last week by contacting the designer. It was nice to know that I wasn’t going crazy and the problem was simply an errata in the pattern. I have now completed both arms of the dress. Next is the collar. It looks like I’ll have the dress done in time for Easter!

This week I’m reading books on back pain and quilting. The two aren’t necessarily connected. I’m also reading The Fire in Ember: A Novel.

To see what others are knitting and reading this week visit Ginny’s Yarn Along.

I love this little dress more every time I see it 🙂 The ruffled edges are adorable!! How wonderful that you were able to contact the pattern creator and she could help solve the problem you ran into 🙂 Enjoy your time away from the computer.

The dress is just gorgeous! Glad you figured out what was going on. I'm taking a break from the yarn alongs during Lent. Waiting for an order from Knitpicks to get started on a couple of new projects. Enjoy the season.

I agree with Kaylana – I'll miss your posts too – good thing I'll get to visit you in the meantime! (which by the way, we're going to call you about coming this weekend to work out all the details, and if it still works for you guys) Andres is giving up caffeine for lent. I still need to think of something. Oh yes, I LOVE your dress – so cute!

The dress looks awesome! I gave up facebook for lent, except for Sundays. I didn't give up blogging or reading blogs, but b/c I gave up facebook I'm just generally online less and I'm really enjoying it!
