Here’s what I did most of the weekend:
And Willie’s main activity:
He likes to sleep in Riley’s crate. Sometimes he even sleeps in there when Riley is in the crate.
I finished the second sleeve on the “Audrey” sweater.
This went relatively smoothly, after I screwed up the first row after the cast-on about 4 times and had to start over. Don’t even ask how one screws up the first row of a pattern 4 different times. Here is a close up of the sleeve cap decreases.
Here is my “gadget” photo of the day:
Somehow I ended up with an extra music stand in my house. This one got put to work as a pattern stand.
I started the second “Audrey” sleeve today. Now that I have figured out where to do the increases and decreases, this one should go fairly quickly. (I know, I know; that’s tempting the knitting gods again.)
A nice little package arrived in the mail today as well, from here.
This is Phildar Aviso, a cotton/acrylic blend that is just as soft as the Rowan Calmer. I had trouble getting this red to photograph correctly; the true color is a crayon/lipstick red, and not as orange-y as in the photo. I finally broke down and ordered this to make the “Kate” sweater from Phildar Famille Spring 2004. Here is a photo from the Kate Along blog.
I’m not too sure when I will do this. I want to do one more lightweight sweater before winter gets here, then start on the Rogue sweater as my main winter project. How to choose, how to choose?? I think this calls for a glass of wine to aid in the decision making process!
