I know. It's been a bad week or so in terms of the dearly departed. But I have one to add to the list.
Fare thee well...
Thou hast gone to the great rewrapped ball of yarn in the stash.
Not for long. The reason for ripping turned out to be the Kollage square needles. I think for me, the wrong needles for this project. Addi Turbo Lace would be better. Pointier needles. And with a far better join; I'm a very tight knitter, and found it problematic to shove the stitches over the cable join, to the point where the yarn was beginning to pill. So, off the needles. But I like the pattern and will return to it.
In other news, Miss T. and I have decided to postpone the second episode of Iron Chefettes until next Monday. We figure y'all will be out hootin' and hollerin' for the holiday weekend (in the U.S., anyway) rather than sitting in front of your computers. As well you should.
Happy Fourth of July!
