Remember back in the late 1990s when Cadillac introduced the Catera and marketed it with “the Caddy that zigs” as its slogan?
I always wondered why anyone would want a car that zigs — surely that would make it difficult to stay on the road?
Questions like this keep me up at night.
Anyway, my work in progress is a sweater that zigs — but in a good way.
As you can see, now that I’m further along on the back the zig-zag pattern is much more obvious. What I didn’t see until I downloaded the photo is that it is a photo of the wrong side. Whoops!
My plan for the weekend is to complete the back and get a start on the front. I’m planning (I think) to do a simple round neck on this. And for a change, perhaps three-quarter length sleeves.
I think this is the most entries I’ve ever gotten for a giveaway — almost 1,450. The winner of a copy of the new edition of The Principles of Knitting is Samantha, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who entered the drawing!
I hope you all have a good weekend. Tomorrow Miss Lucy has to go to the vet for her annual check-up. I haven’t told her yet.
I’ll spend the rest of tomorrow making it up to her. And she will be given a pinch of the catnip that Piddleloop Jen sent her. Thanks, Jen!
