But what do you call it when you stall just before the finish line? Perhaps it is similar to the "Empty Nest Syndrome". I always seem to have a mental block when it come to writing the last line; checking the numbers; and parting with my baby. But I have set myself a deadline. The knitting is done, no problem! The pattern is 90% written (or in this case re-written from Deb's great basic design); and now I have to part with it and leave myself exposed to the experts out there in "Knitting Never Never Land."
Oh well if I want to be one of the "Friends of Cabin Fever" the deed must be done. So ----- Deb, I promise on a stack of knitting books the following will happen. You will have my design no later than bedtime tomorrow night (Sunday, April 20, 2008).
Baby Bernie V is just hanging out until then and will be ready for the final test.

Onward and Upward

......................Collar all around!......................
I have not lost my mind, I am just trying to do the fine tuning on the design and trying to cut back on the text in the pattern. Deb, what do you think. And the rest of you, I would like your comments as well. Can I start the cable after the short rows?
Momma Bear Designs as well as Knits. Must go now an walk the dog, that will give me the opportunity to figure it out.

Knitting of the sample is done, now I must sit at the computer, knit and write, re-write and re-write again. Then the pattern will go to Deb, who is really really possessed with doing it right so that all you knitters out there can enjoy yet another Cabin Fever No Sew pattern and knit with ease and enjoyment. And the best part is 'when you are done, you are done.' I hate sewing up projects after enjoying the knitting to the tenth degree.
Then we travelled back to Huntsville today (Thursday) joined Karen, Dana, Lynda and Deb for a great dinner, and then we joined Karen's Stitch and Bitch knitting networking session. Lynda displayed her Baby V pattern and tiny socks that will match; the colour choice was amazing and the cardigan was adorable. I met some new knitters. Look at that picture of the shop, how much fun and touchy feely opportunities do you see. Love it and the creativety that abounds. Back to work Monday.

The sleeve will have a cable down the centre. That will take a little extra pattern detail but I truly think it is worth it.

Soooooo I changed the blog colour to Blue for the April Showers, hopefully just showers, not downpours. Looking forward to May and May Flowers.
