I’ve been up to a lot of knitting during my blogging hiatus. I won’t show everything now…I need to ration my content.
The color in the first picture is more accurate. It was supposed to have little webbed cap sleeves but I decided to leave them off for now.
I’ve only worn it once; it has a very fine gauge, took forever and my general feeling is, eh. This is the second Norah Gaughan item I’ve knit and I found that even though I added extra length to both, they’re still too short.
I knit it with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Vera, instead of Koigu. I’ve had my eye on this color FOREVER and I didn’t want to waste it on my feet. There’s a lot of left over so I could probably make some little footie socks with it. More to come on that… probably much, much later. At some point I’ll take a picture while I’m wearing it.
At the moment, I’m trying to finish this sweater I started almost 2 years ago. It’s the Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (so much for last minute 21 months later…) I started it before I went to Las Vegas 2 summers ago and only got as far as the waist shaping and then I put it down. I think I know why, I don’t really like the yarn; it doesn’t feel that great and it makes the stitches look uneven. It’s been sitting there for so long and I just want to get it over with.
That’s it for now. More to come, I promise.
