I moved on to a show my brother mentioned to me but seemed a little embarrassed to admit to watching- Orphan Black. It's not family friendly, but it gives me a sci-fi fix. My question is- if a guy is seen watching Downton Abbey how can anything else ever embarrass them?
I wasn't sure I'd like the way the Stroll Tonal yarn knit up in stripes, but it's really growing on me and I think I prefer it to alternating solid colors. It makes me think of the days before I had tried hand-dyed yarns and only saw other ravellers' projects knitted from them. I was blown away by all of the color possibilities outside of my chain hobby store yarn. The only thing I have to watch is making a smooth transition with jogless stripes by slipping the first stitch of the round if it was also a decrease stitch. That's the one drawback to stripes, and I'm not entirely happy with the way I'm managing that, but I think I can smooth out any goofy stitches with blocking. That will be sooner than these photos show, because I'm actually to the bust increases. It is moving along.
