Pictures - at last!
Just a quick post today. We have a hockey game in a little while, so my blogging time is limited.
Here is the new sweater in my life. The color of the yarn isn't quite accurate, as you can tell from the Vogue Knitting Magazine cover. But I wanted the cable and ribs to show up a little. That way, you can understand why I found this challenging pattern just too irresistible. More cabling without a cable needle, combined with knitting in the round - delectable.
If you look real close, you can see some ladybug stitch markers I whipped up a while back. I love them, although they are so heavy, I don't use all of them at one time.
Just to prove that I'm still paying some attention to the Dickinson Pullover, here is a current progress photo. I'm nearing the end of the raglan shoulder shaping of the back. This has become a great portable project because I've memorized the patterns involved and I only need the pattern for the shoulder shaping.
Finally, some clearance stash enhancements. These 100% wool yarns were just too yummy not to come home with me. Having 3 girls, we see a lot of pastel colors around here. Fortunately, Dancing Diva likes pink, Bubba loves lavender and Peeps adores every shade of green, so arguments are kept to a minimum. If I get a chance yet today, out will come the rovings and I'll spend some time preparing the thrums for some thrummed mittens.
Given the cold temps we've started logging at night around here, the girls may need these mittens sooner than I expected. Brrrr.
