Had to make balls first, and Mr MiH - helpfully - made fun of me because my hands were too small for the balls I was making (I am knitted 2 threads at the same time)
Pattern: Umaro by the talented Jared Flood (bought on line)
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Lana Grande in Latte
Needle size: 10 mm (you know, there is no way I am doing that big a project with small needles)
Modification: Added one repeat to the chart because it will go to a king size bed
All was fine, actually this was much easier than what I expected (can I note that some knitters finished it in a week!!!) and stalled at Line 17 - officially my nemesis. I lost count of how many times I knitted it. I managed the line just before I had to rush out the door to make my Eurostar to Brussels on Tuesday!
I am now back on it and things are looking better. I think I got confused by the fact that the icons for the right side are used on the wrong side - but I was supposed to make the switch in my head (thought I did not make it, but actually I had, so had to change back, then got confused and had to redo it again.. - one hell of an hour!).
But the bottom line is this Umaro needs to be finished because that would mean some serious de-stashing!
