I am totally smitten with provisional cast-on !!! As you may have observed, every Spring and Autumn I knit a sweater , times two, for my nieces. . . and well, it’s creeping up on the Vernal Equinox very fast. I must make considerable progress this week ! Here is a very blurry shot of me picking the ‘right legs’ of the ‘live’ stitches beneath the pink crocheted chain I used to knit into . . .
After picking up all the stitches from the provisional cast-on, it’s . . . zzzip . . . the stitches are set free, ‘live’ , and ready to go get knit up into an edging !!!
(( By the way, I’ve decided against lace this year, as a total amateur I’m just not ready yet to face all those yarn-overs ! ))
I am doing a knit 1-purl 1 rib, then a 2-stitch cord bind-off (really, more commonly known as i-cord bind off) . Smokey grey and dusty purple for OneWhoIsThirteen . . .
But then there’s Pin-Striped Tee Two making progress. . . bright green and aqua for TenYearOldKid . . .
And speaking of green things, I found this critter out on the deck today.
(( Apologies for another blurry shot, I swear I do not how to use our camera ! ))

We have many oak trees about our house, does anybody have any good guesses as to what species of moth this might be ?
