Path Phase 1 complete
The first part of the great garden path project is done. The next section for digging has been roughly marked out. We're running out of places to put the extra dirt! If you live near Madison and want to come with a truck for some nice organic dirt, please let me know.
I've been trying to make progress on the purple cardigan pattern today. There've been some big distractions, like the mother-of-all temper tamtrums thrown by the Little Emperor this evening. There's still a lot of persnickety work to be done. I'm hoping for some quality work time tomorrow evening. The lace pattern seems so simple that it ought not to require a chart, BUT I also don't want to write out line by line instructions of how to work the increases into the pattern. It's only a four row repeat, but offering it in seven sizes makes for a little more thinking. Top-down raglans may be easier to knit, but they are somewhat harder to write patterns for.
