30 Knit for Me

Good afternoon. My tummy is hungry! Is yours? Gonna start cooking soon. Baked potatoes are already sizzlin in the oven and butta will be coating a pan so some corn beef hash will be able to crisp up at the edges and we’ll get some of those crispy scrapins from the pan.

I restarted this project again around March 7th. The first attempt resulted in a garment that could have been a little bit bigger. So I frogged it all and made a swatch.


  1. I cast on a smaller size for the neckline with a US 3/3.25mm
  2. When I had to start the neckline increases I changed circulars to a US 7/4.5mm and then increased up to the actual size I want.

Fingers crossed I get a tighter neckline and this garment fits my body better. However, I’ve lost weight during the first month after surgery so now I don’t know if it’ll be looser…sigh. I’m at the point where I need to put the sleeves on waste yarn.

Off to stir pots. Have a good day. TTYS.

  1. Hi :). I missed some posts must be. What surgery?

    I just frogged a lace scarf I had started. I just knew this one spot would always bug me so I might as well start again. So happy I did.

    Take care!

  2. I’m constantly hungry these days. One of the consequences of quarantine I think. I’m impressed by your patience for your WIP. I’m bad about getting frustrated with something that isn’t perfect and giving up vs taking the time to fix it the way I want it to be.


  3. We had ziti tonight for supper (ziti that I had made double of and frozen back in January). And a wonderful salad. It felt good to have a real treat of a meal and not have to work at it. And there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Your speckled yarn is terrific looking!

    1. I really like this colorway of Seismic Yarns. She is a friend in the Bay Area and many of her colorways are inspired by San Francisco.


    1. I am good, Karen. Our shelter-in-place has been extended to the end of May so no seeing my oral surgeon yet to clip out the remaining stitches.


    1. We had a 6 lb, 11 oz can of corn beef hash! When E ordered it we thought we’d be getting several 10 Oz cans 😂. He also got me an industrial sized bag of flour. I had to use 3 cereal containers and one square one so I could put it all in the fridge so those weevils don’t develop in the flour.
