I finished knitting the pieces to the ice blue sweater. Or, rather, reknitting them. This time the decreases turned out pretty nicely. Not perfect, but good enough. Now I just have to block them, sew them together, and knit the turtleneck collar on.
My timing is a bit off for finishing this project. I leave town tomorrow for several days for a family reunion in North Dakota. (This is why there are no pictures of the finished pieces; the camera is already packed.) Blocking and seaming on the road just doesn’t sound like it will happen. So I guess it will have to wait till I get home.
And you all know what that means.
A new project!!
I dithered quite a bit about what I will knit next. God knows I have enough yarn to choose from. I think it will be the Audrey sweater, from the Rowan # 35 magazine. I have the yarn and the pattern already, so I think this one will go in the carry-on to start swatching on the airplane.
This will be our first real family reunion. My mother had seven siblings; there are three surviving, and a multitude of cousins from my generation. We are meeting in the little town where my grandfather homesteaded, and are planning a whole long weekend of fun activities.
I’ll be back in a week!
