That little bit of knitting with Seasilk I showed you yesterday? I did a few more rounds, took a look at it, and ripped it out.
As I feared, the pattern I had worked up just wasn’t going to be a happening event.
Of course if I were a sane and rational person, I would have started with a swatch and figured out it wasn’t going to work before casting on many many stitches. But I’m not, so I ripped everything out last night and started over.
Note, please, that once again I did not start with a swatch, but jumped right in. I think that at this point in my life, I am not trainable.
So what you are seeing tonight looks like negative progress.
Sneaky Sneaky Sneaky
Denise in Kent, WA commented the other day (about clean eating):
Avoiding processed foods, sugar and white flour seems easy enough (and is something I already practice) but I can’t help wondering – how difficult is it to find foods with no additives and preservatives? You’ve gotten me curious, darn it. Will have to pay more attention next trip to the grocery store…
That’s the key — pay close attention at the grocery store. I am lucky in that I have two relatively well-stocked grocery stores very close to my home. And both of them have a lot of organic products. But you still have to be careful and read labels carefully. I found on the label of a jar of organic spaghetti sauce that it contained “organic cane sugar.”
Here is Lucy, trying her best to look sneaky:
Or something. Possibly that is simply her “I’m ignoring you” face.
