Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday to all of you out there. (Anyone?)
I'm veering off a little from my sock knitting to make a summery "beach" sweater. It's out of Bernat Cottontots, and to tell you the truth - I am not sure if I like the stuff or not. It's funky to knit. It doesn't flow smoothly on the needles. I've tried several different kinds: plastic, metal, bamboo, and not really happy with any of them. I'm almost finished with it so it's practically a moot point.
A tip for others of you who knit and purl unevenly, making for odd rows in your work. Use two different sizes of needles. For instance, I tend to purl tighter than I knit, so I purl with a needle one size larger than what is in the directions. Try it and see if your work doesn't look better on the RS.
The saddle pad turned out great. Let me know if you find double worsted cotton anywhere!
I finished the garter stitch vest I made with left over Moda Dea silk n' Wool, a beautiful yarn that's been discontinued.
I'm going to knit a pair of socks this week, and knit a summery tank. I want a basic pattern but I'm going to attempt a more interesting stitch than stockinette or garter or seed! Maybe some nice diagonal pattern.... I have some TLC that needs to be used up.
Happy knitting until next time. Have a great week
