When I moved over here, it was with every intention of regularly blogging insightful and beautifully photographed/worded things quite often. Yet life, it gets in the way, and here we are. Granted, my school schedule isn’t leaving me much space for blogging or knitting, but I had intentions you see.
I am really quite proud of myself here. Both for wrangling Mei Mei into posing with the half knit sweater, and for actually having a half knit sweater to show you. Sleeve #1 is in progress and I could not be happier with how it is coming out. I did have to fiddle with decreases a bit and do some maths, but really this pattern could not be much more of a piece of cake. Laura’s patterns are really lovely to knit up, but what I really like about them are the little elegant details she throws in. Like hems that are turned under with a picot edge, neat little finishing touches to wrap it all up in a bow.
Things that make you gasp in delight as it all comes together in an elegant little package and you can’t wait to wear the sweater could it just hurry up and knit itself faster please!?
The weather is turning here. The days, they are shrieking “Summer!” as loudly as they can, but in the evening you begin to hear whispers of Autumn. It taps you on the shoulder in the morning when you let the dog out. “Pssst…. grab a sweater.” it says, quietly. “And while you’re at it, another quilt for the bed.”
I hope it holds off just a few more weeks. I’d like to get that second sleeve in.
