My blogging time has been limited of late, due to the new addition in our home, but even though I haven't had as much time to blog, I have been getting in my daily dose of knitting. Let me fill you in on what I have been working on.
The lovely Noro I was working on wasn't a scarf, but a sleeve. Actually, it was the second sleeve and has since been finished and seamed to this,
an almost finished Hudson.
I very rarely see a sweater and then decide I haveto make it right away.
Usually I will think about a pattern I like for a little while, then I will hunt down the yarn I would like to use preferably on sale, then after the excitement of purchase, I will let it marinate in the stash for a while, and then finally I will knit it up. But after seeing Aquaknits finished Hudson, I knew I had to make this one immediately. It was just what I had been searching for. I even wanted to use the same color, but I thought I would try to not be a complete copycat and chose these earthy colors instead. I am now finishing up the hood, and will soon have a complete sweater that will be all ready for next fall.
But, Hudson has some competition.
I've been chugging away at the collar of Blue Sky Alpaca's Snap Cardi. This collar's a bit daunting, 8 inches of ribbing will take a bit of patience. The sleeves are already complete on this one as well, so if I keep at it I will soon have 2 new sweaters. Also, I must wish my beloved a Happy Birthday
Peter is 31 today. And even though it's his day he still shared blowing out his candles with the 2 children who get most excited about it. Of course, he needed the help, there was 31 candles on that little cake!
