So! My soda saga keeps going. I sat down to start prising off the keys from my keyboard (to get the dried soda out from underneath them. (A task I’ve done on many other laptop keyboards without problems, I might add. (And don’t give me that look. Like you’ve never spilled anything on a keyboard.))
And do you know what was the first thing I did? I broke one of my keys. I bet you will be able to figure it out- it’s a letter that I haven’t typed in this entire post (other than the pattern names), and it’s a letter that is useful when talking about knitwear.
Hint 1: It’s the first letter of this lovely knit garment- a loose and lovely sweater split down the front (it’s not a pullover, it’s a ________).
caramel by Isabell KraemerHint 2: This final outerwear layer isn’t a sweater, it’s a big, bulky __________.
Big Old Coat by Joji LocatelliHint 3: And this bright and happy tube of knitting isn’t a shawl or a wrap, it’s a ________.
3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji LocatelliDid you figure out what letter is missing from my keyboard? It’s the one that follows B in the alphabet. It also turns out to be a very useful letter when talking about shades and hues of yarn (_olors) and various knitted garments (_ardigans, _oats, and _owls). Sigh.
Unfortunately, without this letter, if I work up any of these patterns I won’t be able to write about them on my blog! Oh no!
(Or, I suppose I might go visit the laptop store and see if they are able to fix my keyboard… But that would make a lot of sense. Ugh!)
(OK, real talk time. I’m being a little dramatic. I actually can use the ‘c’ key, but only about half the time. But it is frustrating, because I know exactly what happened (I broke off a tiny little piece of plastic). And, once I make it to the computer store, I bet they’ll be able to fix it. Keep your fingers crossed!)
