Hoping that the "if you knit a sweater for your boyfriend, he will break up with you" curse does not apply to the girlfriend of one's son.... I'm knitting an Aran sweater for that girlfriend. This kind of work is a Knitter's project.....all full of the complexities of texture and form. This work, in 3-D, can be daunting; every row a challenge of eyes to chart to written word to hands to chart to hands (until the pattern takes form in the grey matter). For me... I'm working 4 Rows At A Time. Everyday, at least 4 rows must get worked (yes, a rule). It helps me cope (don't get me wrong, I love moving this kind of mountain) - and coping is also necessary in the form of little tics on paper to mark each pattern within a pattern's progress. So here is the beginning... The Pattern - Honeycomb Classic - starts on page 28 of the booklet in the photograph. Will you be inspired?
Bible Verse For Tonight.
"To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps." I Peter 2:21
