Tuesday is Try something New Day



Well today has been a weird day for me. I can't seem to get my head screwed on straight. I forgot to do a whole bunch of things I normally do each day, like go to Ravelry, breathe, etc. I think my brain never woke up.

I did get a few more fish finished for the latest VJG afghan, I now have 78 fish completed, only about 22 more to go.

I got a package from Shelly today with a blue blanket for VJG and some squares to piece together some more blue yarn (thanks Shelly) and a few personal items for me. I love the new SHREK mug for my water it's awesome. I have informed my kids that the mug is off limits, it is for MY use only or they have to face the wrath of Shelly. When I get the camera from my oldest son I'll work on posting some pictures for you all.

OK onto CONTEST STUFF

Tuesday is try a new stitch day... If you have the time why not try a new stitch today, maybe a small swatch to keep to remind you of this stitch for use in future projects. I read somewhere that someone makes a small swatch of all the different stitches she has learned in a scrap type book and lists the number of stitches needed for the pattern etc. I LOVE this idea and am going to also try this. When I get organized that is, LOL (Right Cat?) Oh by the way CAT is having a contest over on her blog asking for help on getting organized so pop over there and see if you can help her out.

Here is the Tuesday Stitch

BAMBOO STITCH

Works on multiples of two stitches.

Row 1: *Yarn over, knit two. Pass the yarn over over both knit stitches. Repeat from * across.

Row 2: Purl.

Repeat these two rows for pattern.

Making a yarn over at the beginning of the row can be a little tricky. Just drape the yarn over the empty needle and make sure you've wrapped the yarn around the needle before working the first knit stitch.


To get an entry in this weeks contest make a comment on how you like this stitch, if you've ever done this stitch before, if you thought it was easy or hard... whatever. All you really need to do is comment to get an entry.

I guess that's it for me tonight, maybe I'll even get a chance to check blogs before bed, if not I definitely will in the morning.

I see the ENT DR today too so maybe he can fix my nose.

Hope you all have a great day, take a minute to smell the roses, or the freshly fallen rain or whatever fragrances that make you smile.

I have done the bamboo stitch before. Takes a little getting used to, but it really has a cool effect, once you figure out the yo thing at the beginning. I hope the appointment goes well... :)
