I swatched and started Hey, Teach. I didn’t think I liked the 1×1 ribbing at the bottom, so I tried it with two garter ridges (4 knit rows) instead. It looked ok, but it was going to be too heavy when I repeated it at the edge of the sleeve. Then I tried 1 garter ridge, but that didn’t provide enough stability to keep the stockinette stitch above it from curling. So I’m back to the original 1×1 rib. I think it looks fine! I guess I just needed to consider all my options, first.
Here’s the rest of what I’ve done so far. Not bad for a few days work.
And a better view of the lace. I’ve finished one repeat of the 12 row lace pattern.
Last weekend, we took the Teen out for some driving practice on the Old Columbia River Highway. It was pretty late in the day, and it looked like the sunset would be pretty, so we drove up to Vista House at Crown Point.
From here you can see up and down the river. Here’s the view east:
And the view west:
It was pretty chilly out, so we didn’t stay long. I love the reflection of the clouds in the windows.
This weekend is dry. Finally. Temporarily. I took a walk on Friday, savoring the last bits of fall color. There are still some flowers:
And the remaining leaves are glorious.
Even after they’ve fallen.
What did you do with your weekend?
