Yarn Along 3/5/2014

This week I am working on my my turquoise set and I am reading Post Office.

I have not made much progress this week.  I decided I needed to finish the work on my turquoise set. I am using the Alokananda Beret pattern and I tried the scarf ans the pattern called for and found it curled… a lot.  So I restarted twice with different edge and then tried adding a slip stitch and it still curled.

So I decided to make it a cowl instead, but three times I started and twisted my work when joining it in the round!!!!!  On the third try, I got it correctly joined, so I am finally able to make some progress again.

I hope to have more progress on the blanket next week, but I have not had time to get to it this week.

    It’s so frustrating when the join gets twisted. Glad you are on the right track. The yarn is lovely, a really great color.

      Thanks, I know twisting sucks….especially when you don’t notice until you are many rows in!

    Very pretty pattern! I love twists and cables but find I don’t have much patience for them. Your work is lovely.

    Beautiful cables! That stinks about the twist in the join. I’ve done that so frequently over the years that now I check my joins a gazillion times before going forward. I’m just that paranoid. 🙂

      I check so many times, but still missed the twist! So glad I finally got it straight 🙂
