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.
