FO: as in finished object.
CollegeDude graduated from the University of Oregon on Monday. We’re all very proud of him, and thrilled to pieces. But now I need a new name for him…
It’s been super-busy around here, with just a little knitting. I did have several hours of knitting time in the car on the way to and from graduation, so I worked on Passiflora. My gauge swatches told me I needed to go down 3 needle sizes, so I did. It’s worked in the round, so it takes a while to get much length on the needles! I got about 3 inches done, and saw that it was way too tight. So I went back up 2 needle sizes, and started over. Depending on how I looked at it, I was either spot on, or way off. So I just kept knitting. I’m now halfway through the third ball of yarn, and I’m pretty sure I’m making gauge…or not.
The hem really curls. If I had any sense at all, I would steam it to see if it’s going to hang straight.
But I don’t want to get the ironing board out. It’s hiding to the left side of my IKEA shelves. You remember these.
They’re still this neat and tidy, except I filled that empty space with the knitting bag that’s supposed to be there. Perfect.
Eventually I’ll check about that hem. But not today…
