No More Peanuts for me!!!

Ginger, I'm soooo glad that you guys are okay after your Pyrex explosion!!!

I HATE that I missed Knit Night again, but who knew that eating a handful of Planter's Dry Roasted Peanuts could cause such excruciating pain in one's stomach??? I love peanuts, but after the night I had, I will never eat another one!!! I literally felt like I'd been kicked in the stomach. Doubled over with pain & cramps, the only thing to do was try & go to sleep & hope that the morning would bring better results, which it has, thank GOD!!!

I've started a new sock pattern called the "Classy Slip-Up". To date, I haven't ventured far away from your basic rib or garter rib sock & have decided it's time to step out of the sock box!!! I haven't knit any solid colored socks either, another first!!!

The pattern calls for alternating rows of stockinette & reverse stockinette rib between slipped stitches, 4 row repeat. It's pretty easy to remember.

Cascade 220 was the very first "good" yarn that I used when I first started knitting. It's such a versatile yarn & felts so wonderfully too!
PNL has been after me to knit him a sweater. I chose this basic Neckdown Pullover from Knitting Pure & Simple.
The yarn IS Cascade 220 #9403.
I'm knitting this in vain cause I know he will never wear it..........
