I can always tell when life gets stressful. I all I want to do is stitch. With that being said, I am putting the projects asside to get ready for the transition at the end of the month. The burp cloths and bibs are for several friends who have had babies recently. I have added to the wash cloths as these have become the mindless knitting I do at night. I worked up a pattern that I saw for a baby blanket and adapted it for the wash cloths. It is super easy and I like the look of the rib.
Southwest Horizontal Rib Stitch:
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: *K1,P1* repeat across row
Row 4: Purl
This is the pattern along with the Garter Borders.
My WIP is the picture "O Jersalem" by Greg Olson. I had the opportunity to meet the artist earlier this year and set the goal of finishing it. This has been a long process and hopefully I can get it done.
Monday Ric and I had the opportunity to go to see his cousin's performing group who were in town for concerts and sight seeing. They have been running the Showbiz group for many years and pattern it after the Young Ambassadors from BYU that they once belonged. It was a great preformance and we got to see their family as well as Diana's girls. Some of the songs were from Wicked, High School Musical, and other movie tunes. Jacob did a solo from Newies that was very good. He had just returned a week ago from his mission to South Carolina. Part of their activities included a service project to an orphanage, Phoenix Children's Hospital and the Grand Canyon. All in all it was a great evening in spite of the heat.
