It’s a good thing I moved into a more spacious apartment. How else would I have had room for all the knitters that were in here this weekend?! Kelly had the “good fortune” to be my first houseguest…on account of her life exploding. But I happened to have a spare set of keys and an air mattress so she crashed at Casa de Jenna for a couple days. I always claim that I love living alone, but it was really nice to be roommate-y again. (A Lifetime movie may have been involved.) And it was also a great excuse to just fill the entire apartment with knitters and margaritas Friday night! Jane made guacamole and Erin did her part by drinking the baby Coronas I accidentally bought. Plans were made for future yarn-free socializing. I love those knitters.
I finished all the pieces of my Prairie Tunic today! So here’s one: Twisted Cord?? Sweet Fancy Moses, I could. not. do it. Just cut 48 feet of yarn, quadruple it, divide it in half, twist each half clockwise, then release your hand so that they twist themselves together…or something. I tried—I really did—but after several episodes of Friends, I ended up with a twisty pile of jack squat. So I started an i-cord. But quickly came to my senses and decided that there was no way on God’s green earth that I was knitting 8 feet of i-cord on size 3 needles. So I braided 8 feet of yarn instead. I wished I could have gotten the hang of the twisted cord. Hopefully the braided straps will not look [too] cheesy.
