I finished this in early January. It still needs to be blocked. Hopefully that will help with the small pucker in the yoke. Otherwise, it fits well, and L loves it. It was fun to knit with a really interesting construction.
I originally bought this yarn to make Melissa Leapman's Basket Weave Pullover.
I even joined the knit along but I just couldn't get into that
pattern. Just as well. I was looking at some FOs on Ravelry and many of them stretched out. Let's hope this one doesn't.
This one was more my style. Simple, interesting, good tv knitting.
I can't believe I left a picture of my cast up for so long.
You'd think that since I've been home with a broken ankle, that I'd be blogging up a storm, but to be honest, I haven't been doing much so it would be terribly boring to blog about sitting around the house. The good news, though, is that I've been writing a lot I'm almost finished with revisions to my last chapter. I can really see the light at the end of this dissertation tunnel!
I have been knitting a bunch. I'm working on Oblique, and finished up the back earlier this week. I'm a bit worried that it will be too big for me, but we'll see how it comes out. It's been a fun knit; the lace pattern was easy to memorize, and so it's been good relaxing knitting. I'll try to get some pictures over the weekend.
I also started a Short Row Hat in some Patons SWS, (raveled here) which was coming along pretty quickly. But this pattern is one where you really have to pay attention and I haven't had that much uninterrupted, or non-TV knitting time to get it finished. I think I'm about halfway done. I just need to finish it. I haven't had too much motivation, since I haven't been going outside = not really needing a new hat. It will match my camel coat, though, so I'll get some pictures when I am finally done.
