I started my bomb on Saturday, and here's how it looks right now
Although the knitting may seem monotonous (the basic stockinette stitch) I decided this would be the perfect time to learn how to purl continentally. Youtube, as Dr Sock often says, is the knitters best friend, and I have to agree. If I don't understand how to do a stitch that is called for in a pattern, I simply Google it and then find a Youtube demo. It's great! So that is how I learned to purl continentally. Last winter, when I was knitting those stranded mittens, I learned to knit continentally, and found that it wasn't difficult at all, and was much faster than my old 'throwing' method of knitting. I was determined to learn to purl that way as well. So I've found the right time....and it isn't that difficult!
Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely lunch out at Empire State South with Charlie and his parents AND C's cousins, who also happen to be Charlie's Mom's Godparents. (I'm not sure if that makes them Charlie's Great Godparents, or not, but they sure are special people!) Charlie behaved like the little prince that he has become, and even took a little nap in his Daddy's arms
Oh well, here he's not napping, he's inspecting my iPhone case, which I'll have to admit is a bit colorful!
This is the picture I wanted to show you
We had a great time, but were totally exhausted by the end of the day, as you can clearly see!
