I've started getting emails from friends who've noticed I haven't been posting and how am I?
Well, sort of boring, that's how. I've been working a lot, making projects I can't show you and I've had a cold. Nothing anybody wants me to spend much time talking about, really.
So I'm going to get with the progam and see if I can be at all entertaining.
Look at this sweater and tell me if there's anything about it that says, "Whoa! You need to fix that before you go any further!"
See that line that goes across the sweater right where I break for the plaquet? It goes all the way across to the left, too. Drives me NUTS. Is this something that will show once it's done and there are buttons on it?
Here's something else I've made some progress on:
Needs a thumb, some bottom triangles and a cuff! I've had to rest with this one because I have been making it on 00's. Please, make this mitten, the pattern is !fun!, but follow the directions and use 1's. Oy, 00's are tough on the hands! I'm switching to 0's for the right mitten.
Yesterday I was home sick and started on a couple of projects that don't require much thought. No sense wasting all that great couch time! First, I spun up a bobbin of fawn corriedale. 160 yds of 2 ply worsted weight.
I'm making a couple of Chula hats for Christmas presents with this. Stay tuned! Brown is next!
Then I started Fitzgerald, a Noro pattern, with my handspun bfl. This is Lisa's Deep Sea colorway.
I can't call it Fitgerald though, especially with the Deep Sea connotation. Get out your old Gordon Lightfoot album and hear about the demise of the Edmund Fitgerald ship in Lake Superior. Bad karma. Fitz is saltier, but it needs a new sailor name (not Popeye, please). Suggestions?
