I am counting the days until Eastern Market looks like this again. There is nothing I love more than getting up early in the morning and going to the farmers market to see what wonderful things are filling the baskets and bins. Not to mention, there is a bakery that has the best cheese danishes, a middle eastern market that has unbelievable pickled garlic and, the real reason, spending time with family. I love going with my granddaughters, watching them pick the fruits and veggies. This year I am determined to make the trip to Eastern Market every Saturday morning a tradition.
Be honest, how does the Loopy Stitch square look? I started the loops on February 23 and I just finished them today, March 2nd. I can't tell you how many times I ripped the crocheting out and started over. This loopy stitch does not come natural to me. On top of it, I am not sure how Susan completed each row. The directions said to slip stitch the loopy row to the next purl row. That went right over my head. HELP SUSAN!!!!!!! I ended up sewing the row in place. And to think, I STILL HAVE TO MAKE ANOTHER LOOPY STITCH SQUARE. If you have any suggestions on how to do the next square, please leave a comment or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I think I need to take a break from that stitch. I am going to make the base for the next Loopy Stitch Square and then do the loops later. Not to mention, I have to get to my yarn shop, "have you any wool?", and purchase my next skeins of yarn. I want the perfect turquoise for the next loops. I think I will start the New Sock Monkey on page 70 of "itty bitty toys", just to give some variety to my knitting.
