And I have a cold that’s been hanging on for over a week now. Double Blargh.
But since I haven’t had the energy to do much of anything else, I’ve done a lot of knitting. The back of my Winterberry pullover is done, and I’m up to the patterned bodice of the front. The fun stuff!
I’m using a simple slip-stitch pattern called “Rosehip”. It’s basically just a k3, sl1 repeat on every row. The pattern is formed by slipping the stitch with the yarn in back on the RS rows, and in front on the WS rows. On every RS row, the pattern is shifted by 3 stitches, so that the stitch that was in the center of the k3 on the first 2 rows becomes the stitch that is slipped for the next 2 rows, for a 4-row repeat. Garter stitch with a kick!
