Let me start by saying "THANK YOU" to all of you who are taking a peek at my blog. I really appreciate that you take the time to check in. And, I really love to hear your comments. Advice is ALWAYS welcome.
Susan B. Anderson is a gifted, talented, wonderful artist. I AM NOT !!!!!!
When I started the Stripey Loop Square, I figured, easy as pie. EXACTLY !!!! Pie is NOT easy.
The plain part of the square was a breeze, knit rows and purl rows. Now, small detail, THE LOOPS ! I feel like a giant working on Tinkerbell's blanket. My fingers, trying to make the loop, hold it, then secure it, feel twice their size. These 2 squares are going to take me longer than all the others combined. Actually, the part that confuses me, once the loops are done, where am I slip stitching the loop row to? The only thing that might save me, Lisa ( Sasa6 on ravelry ). She is my dear friend who got me back into knitting, after a 37 year break. Lisa thinks she is coming over tonight to knit and watch the Olympics. Actually, I am going to make her do a practice row of loops and see if she does it different than I do. SHE will know if I am doing it wrong. Just dawned on me..... I should look on Susan's blog and see if she has a tutorial for "loops". Susan is so helpful. ( No tutorial for the loops. Only *I* need it. )
UPDATE ~ Sammy, my 21 year old cockatiel whose toes were severed, he is doing great. He stayed in the "Hospital Room" for 2 days, learned to maneuver with his injured foot and is now back to life as it is.
