There’s been knitting going on, not that you’d really know it from this blog. But here’s the progress on the Aran Pullover – we have a fully washed and blocked back (fondly known as “my swatch”), and one sleeve. Second sleeve is in progress on the left.
The photo doesn’t do it justice. Washing has definitely softened it up and I think I’ve gained enough inches in the width. I’m a little hesitant about the sleeves being a bit tight around the wrist but I think I can block it a bit wider.
In other knitting, the second knee sock is coming along slowly. I really need to step up the pace on that one as there are many other socks waiting in the wings, and I’m wearing out the few hand knits socks I already have because I don’t like wearing anything else anymore. Spoiled! That means I have to knit more more more. And those ruffles? Hmmph. Haven’t touched them.
In sewing news, I practiced quilting for one pillow, but not very happy with the results. I cut the pieces for my curtains, but haven’t sewn them yet. Sigh. There really is so much going on in the next week it may be awhile.
And lastly, in pet news, Ty got really sick of all the bird talk around here. He insisted on showing off his new Holiday Do.
