This weekend the whole house was under the weather. Wilma ate 1/3 bag of chocolate chips. ICK! Suffice it to say that I used 3 rolls of paper towels and trailed after her all day Saturday cleaning up. She's better now. Whew! Secundogeniture and I had the nasty head cold that's going around - but we're better now. Even BF was not 100%.
This meant lots of rest and relaxation. What better way to relax than watching TV and knitting? I finished the third strip of the Sampler Blanket (currently offered as a class by Lynn Wilson at my LYS)
A favorite of mine is the Bow Knot Stitch.
The Eyelet Mock Cable Ribbing is another favorite.
This Purl Triangles Stitch is a little deceiving. It's really rather simple, but you must pay attention or your triangles will turn into a mess. I find myself checking after every row. Nothing worse than catching a mistake several rows down.
So there you have it. The sampler blanket is 60% complete. I confess that even as I write this, the fourth strip is well under way. There's a chance all thirty swatches are completed by the end of the week. Now that's definitely the silver lining on the cloud!
