What rising numbers are those?
The numbers of unemployed people? (Sad)
The numbers of inches of snow? (Deep)
The numbers of times that I forget to decrease 4 stitches on Row 8 of my current pattern repeat? That's a rising number for sure.
Nope! It's the numbers of Ashford Cowl projects in Ravelry. For a long time the number floated around the 60-something, then it crept up through the 70s and 80s and suddenly I noticed it had passed 90.
Now I'm watching it like a hawk. Don't want to miss that magic 100 number.
Exciting innit!? Well, as we say in our house, it's kinda-a-little-bit exciting anyway.
