So, I was finally able to get this done. The second panel was the same 16 repeats of the stitch pattern that made the original panel, so needless to say I was bored with it and had to muscle myself into completing it. I kept getting side tracked with baby hats.
Then, of course as I started the grafting of the live stitches, it decided to get busy at work. Which honestly, I don't mind being to busy to knit at work. They don't pay me fore my stitch work after all. The real upset was that on one of the busiest days we've ever had, our internet failed. All the programs we use for tracking our air ambulances and recording our Emergency Medical Service calls require the internet. So, just a bit of a problem. That's life, right?
So last night, I was dead slow. In fact all I did was talk to our crazy lady that always calls in. Not a single consult needed, or patient transfer, so I got to attack all 218 stitches of kitchner grafting. What can I say, if I'm not having fun one way I'll find another. But, it's done. I've attached a pic. I'll get it on the wires and blocked out tonight so there will be more pictures to come. I'll also have baby hat pics. I have Aprils quota almost filled.
And a side note (look a squirrel!), I'm a cusser. I just have a potty mouth. It's the family way, but I have to agree, there are certain situations and forums that foul language whether in humor or not is not appropriate. A public forum such as this one is one such place. I think if that's the stuff you feel you need to share, there's other areas, such as blog spot where it's your own blog page that others don't have to see just to peruse the days topics. That's my thoughts on the matter. Take'm or leave'm,
Hope you gentleman and out token ladies, have a wonderful weekend.
