6/12/2013 after knitting 2 1/2 hours I discovered that I changed colors too soon and had to frog back about 10 rows. I need some rest and then I’ll get back to it.

6/30/2013 this experience is much more pleasant than knitting my first Catkin but I still can’t knit more than one row at a sitting because I find it too intense to forge my way through those wretched charts.

All WIP’s on hold since 7/22/2013 due to slipped vertebrae preventing me from knitting, among most other things.

10/4/13 I know after my first Catkin I said I would never make another, but I must admit, this one was a much more pleasant experience. Although, those charts on the middle section are a doozy! Once I got to charts A, B, and C it was smoother sailing. I love my new Catkin! I think I’ll call her Murphy.
