Cleaning Lesson #1 - Don't Clean!


I had written great notes.
Wonderful ones in fact, so that I could tell you all my changes.
I made one fatal mistake though.
I cleaned.
Well, not a good thorough cleaning. Hell, a thorough burning might be in order at this point. I suppose what I did could more accurately be described as a "tidy".

I should know better. after I clean I can never find anything. You guessed it. I can't find the notes. Also in that little envelope was a brand new pattern and chart that I wrote.
I'll find it someday.
Maybe.

Let this be a lesson to you. I make mistakes so that you may learn. Don't clean! For the sake of your knitting, don't clean! If your family needs to know why you are no longer cleaning you can point this out and let them know what a true hazzard it would be to clean.



For now you get half-assed notes.
Patons' Shetland Chunky - 6 skeins - US 9 needles
I cast on for a woman's medium - 156 sts
I worked 4 inches in 2x2 rib, then stockinette for another 11 inches.
The arms I cast on 52 sts
I worked 6 inches in 2x2 rib, then stockinette until I used up the skein.

The rest was done in typical raglan fashion.
The neck is similar enough to the original pattern

The neck was done differently because the Paton's Shetland Chunky tends to stretch out and stay that way at the neck. So I did extra decreases at the neck when I picked up stitches and worked the 2x2 rib for 3 inches. You probably wouldn't need to do that if you were using a different yarn. It helps to "know" your yarn.

I think that's enough to get you on your way if you want to do your own Barely Banff. I'm taking tomorrow off from blogging so I can clean. HA! you got me. You know I'm not going to clean. I'd lose more stuff and I don't want that to happen. I'll really be working in the shop, it's so quiet early in the morning. I'll be back on Thursday.

Remember, don't clean!!

When Dude asks if I'm going to clean, I'm going to say, "No, Amy told me not to." Think it will work?
 
Thank you for the validation and permission to continue on in my mildly slothful ways. For the sake of my knitting, and who knows what else, there is a ban on cleaning in my house. Smart girl!
 
I used to be organized and had a clean house and finished laundry. Then I started knitting again...
 
Well, I've already got the "don't clean" lesson down pretty well. If only I could get a handle on the "wake up early enough to post on the blog at 5:53AM" lesson!
 
You've inspired me to do my own Banff. I'm following the pattern, pretty much, but wouldn't have thought of it if you hadn't done yours. Thanks! :)

Oh, a review on the Patons Shetland Chunky, please. In the same pattern booklet as the Must Have Cardi there is a cabled pullover that I love that calls for it. No cleaning? Yeah, I got that one down pat.

Cleaninf is evit!
 
Aw, a tidyrant! I'll do my best not to clean... bad things happen.

(To think what's in tidy limbo - missing patterns, needles, probably some yarn, perhaps even Elvis? That's what happened to him - somebody went on a tidy!)
