Reviewing the Situation, Again

We have paraded. We have picnicked. We have observed Youth play Monkey-In-The-Middle with Hacky Sacks and terrorize one another with giant bubble wands. Three of us have knit in public. Truly, a lovely 4th on 53rd. Back to the real world.

In reviewing the layout and diagrams for THE PROJECT (yes, it is beginning to assume capital letters in my mind), I find depressingly few complete blocks. Admittedly, this is better than some of the other trials. One in particular I remember only had one. This --the so-called final, final version -- has six, enough to get started.

This leaves me with only one, last, decision.

Mattress seam, three needle bind-off, or crochet?

I am so glad I didn't assemble as I went along.

I was just reading in Knitter's Stash (as I sat at the Point) that when doing a 3-needle bind off, purl the bind off for a flatter seam. Should you pick that bind-off. You should assemble at the Point. Then you would be completely Hyde Park normal.

No advice on the bind off, but glad to see it's coming along!
