Near the End
I am on the last few pattern repeats on the sleeve of my Palette Cardi aka the Knitted Bathrobe. My new chart keeper showed up last week and it has been a big help in keeping track of where I am. The sleeves have been particularly tricky due to decreasing while at the same time keeping the pattern going. I have tried using embroidery chart keepers before but they were not worth the trouble because besides being awkward, the magnets always slipped. This thing is doing a nice job of holding it all together while sitting on a wobbly pile of pillows in the middle of my bed while my lazy ass hides away from the world. My spring break got real broke this year. I am counting on all this pretty yarn to rescue me.
