In the last week I have finished the body of the sweater, right down the to the bottom cable and lace patterning and even bound off! The sleeves await me now – I need to go dig through my needles to find another set appropriately sized – I want to knit them at the same time.
Not too bad, needs some blocking. The back looked a little “swingy” to me (most likely just from the fact that while I was knitting I switched sizes unintentionally and I wasn’t going to rip it out and redo.) – but I turned it around so that the back was in front and I think I might like that fit a little better. Hrm.
Lorelai has also taken initiative to be covered up. On Saturday we were doing our thing when, pet-owner duty called and we had to take Jackson outside for a bathroom break. When we came back in, Lorelai picked up her hat and asked me to put it on and then we went right back to coloring. Um, ok. I’m not going to deny the kid from wearing a handknit hat, ever!
Photos in this post were all iPhone photos – not the best quality – quick and dirty that’s for sure. I took a great class this weekend, “Photography for Knitters”, lead by Gale Zucker – it was great and I learned a lot! Photos in the future will be much better – I’ll get out of the bathroom, promise! I wore my Central Park Hoodie hoping to get a decent shot of me in it and I know that several of the other participants did, so I hope to share those soon. Here are a few of my favorite shots I captured during the workshop:
Ishbel – knit by Brenda (fourpeass on Ravelry).
Seahorse in Orange Yarns – I knit the seahorse. He’s still missing his eyes. I am going to keep him and knit a different one for friends that are expecting – I’ll use cotton, even though I love the Vanna’s Choice, it does have a bit of fuzz and babies don’t want to chew on fuzz. I think I have figured out how to make it a crinkly toy as well. More to come.
