Briefly….I have been having computer issues, had to get a new phone, which I think I finally figured out, and have had very little free time.
Two weeks ago I gave my knitting basket a good clearing out and made Dr visions about WIPs. I ripped out the bamboo wedding shawl since I could not get my hands on a third ball of the yarn I needed and it would have been too short. I settled on the bay of Fundy scarf (on ravelry) and will have enough wool to finish. I also decided to frog my grey cabled sweater. The sizing was terrible, where it should have bee 25 inches it was 36. I would have never worn it, I could wrap the back entirely around myself. I even had my daughter throw the finished sleeves away ( don’t worry, cheap yarn) so I wouldn’t’t be tempted for a third try. There are too many awesome sweater patterns out there to waste energy on one that just isn’t working out.
I finished the pullover inspired by the high line cardigan, and I love it!
(And am really loving my new phone, since I can add pictures with it!). We were at my daughter’s final horse show of the year and my bright sweater kept me nice and toasty. I also found a home for the high line cardigan I made for said daughter that she didn’t like. I gave it to my son’s girlfriend . (Not a great pic, taken early in the morning)
she loves it, which makes me happy.
I made pretty thing, by Stephanie Pearl McPhee, love it. I sweated the last few rows, but really did have enough.
I also made a cowl based on one I saw in the Outlander series on starz. Go watch it, read the books. Amazing!
A really bad pic of me, but it was late. This was made in Rowan drift super bulky, which is delicious. This one is mine, I made an infinity version in blue for my best friend…and she loves it.
To wrap up this disjointed and rambling post I am working on Robin Hoodie (again, on ravelry). This one is for my younger son, who told me I should never make it for him, especially not in blue. The child picked ultra alpaca in navy. I have finished the hood and will be starting on the yoke soon. I’be not done a top down sweater yet, so am hoping I understand the directions well enough.
A very dark picture, but there’s the hood.
One gratuitous shot of the puppy, who is growing really fast, and is a little love.
