Somehow I forgot to put my NSSC pattern in my vacation bag, so I only got to the part where you cast on a few more stitches at the armhole before splitting off the sleeves from the body. I sorta remembered the number of stitches, but I didn't want to take a chance and have to rip back.
And I finally finished the back of my Kyoto! I know I've said I like seaming, but I've thought better of it and modified the back to put in short row shaping instead of binding off stair step fashion so I could do a three needle bind off on the shoulders. I decided to go this route after reading a thread on the knitty board that the 3 needle bind off is stronger for the shoulders. And with the 100% mercerized cotton only going to get heavier, I figured it would be a good idea.
And no vacation trip to the cabin is complete without a visit to Wally World. I finally bought myself 4 balls of Peaches & Cream, 2 in Fiesta Ombre and 2 in the Potpourri Ombre (as those were the only 2 color selections I liked from what they had) to knit something from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I had bought the book from Costco awhile ago, but hadn't gotten around to knitting anything from the book. I had been wanting to knit either the ball band washcloth or the fun baby bib as my first MDK project, but the baby bib won out, mainly 'cause I remembered how to start the bib pattern as I didn't have the book w/me on our trip. One of my cousin's will be having a boy in November so I figured the Fiesta ombre would be a good gender neutral yarn to knit the bib in. All I need now is to find some fun beach ball or gecko/lizard type button and I'm good to go.
