Lady E, worked in Silk Garden. 4 tiers in, just connected the 2nd ball of Noro. Wondering if I should go down a needle size and redo, but I kind of like the fabric I'm getting. It IS for someone living in Southern CA after all, and we don't really need a thick woven wooly fabric to keep warm here.
I had to call the LYS where I bought the book, because I was on my way to my ex inlaws house yesterday and forgot the pattern. I knew there would be streeeeess if I didn't have my knitting, and I'd forgotten the book... someone there fortunately answered the phone and was kind enough to remind me how to start the side triangles. I remembered the rest of it without the pattern (it IS really easy!), and the afternoon was saved.
This is why a great LYS is such a marvelous thing to have. Not only do they give you yarn, but they help preserve familial harmony.
