Some things are just WRONG.
Here's one of them.
That's my pond. See all the "lovely" string algae? Yeah. Though the green is lovely after a winter of drab gray, the masses of string algae after only a couple of days above freezing is not so lovely. That water should be lovely and clear. I should be looking at pebbles, not string algae.
It's just WRONG that it's already this thick at the bottom of the waterfall too! What is UP with that!
And it's still a tad too early to take down the netting that protects the pond from all the falling leaves and other junk that gets in there and then gets stuck in the ice. Maybe where you are you can be confident that the ice is gone, but around here... let's just say I've made snow men in April.
Other things are Just RIGHT! Like another knit night full of laughter. Alas, this time I can't refer you to you tube videos. I got stuck in a bizarre riff on mini-sheep and Bedlington terriers (which I've always thought looked rather like lambs), and the possibility of using mini-sheep instead of lawnmowers... I can't repeat it... I'm not even sure what made it all so funny, but we laughed until we cried.
The laughing slowed my knitting down a bit... but I still made progress. Here is Irtfa'a three rows into the last chart before the edging!
I think maybe I can take out the life line that I put in at the beginning of the last chart, eh? You can even almost see the beginning of the new pattern taking shape!! But, in that picture anyway, you can't see the beads closely enough to figure out what I decided to do. I'm still hoping I made the right decision.
This is only slightly better. While it clearly reveals that I've opted for the larger beads, you won't be able to tell for another two rows that I've decided to use a blend of the larger and smaller beads in this section. I'd go for the big ones, but I fear that I won't have enough to make it through two repeats of the chart and the edging. I'm hoping to avoid ordering beads AGAIN for this shawl.
Of course, if I'm wrong, I'll just take out the wee beads, and suck it up to order more big ones. Ah well, that will be a good time to order the beads for Evenstar I guess.
