I pretty well can’t wait for my dressform to arrive. (Yes, of course I ordered one about 37 seconds after writing that last post. And why yes, I do have an impatience problem.
I’m very, very close to dividing for the armholes and adding the bust short rows on the Shaped V-neck Cardigan. I really want the dressform around for thorough inspection when I add them, so I had to distract myself!
Hubby asked for an indoor cap to wear on his bald head a couple of weeks ago. I think this one is going to live in the sidebar for a whole day before it’s finished. That, uh, moodily-lit photo was taken early last night and I’m already on the decreases. The yarn is very soft and fine, and I think it will work well for him.
I also accompanied a friend to a truly fabulous yarn shop. She was going to get supplies for a class at Stitches West, I was going for moral support. Then I saw that they were one of the few lucky yarn shops to carry Blue Moon products. I say that, and not simply “Socks that Rock”, because it turns out Blue Moon does other stuff!
Peacock-blue almost-solid silk thread laceweight.
And generous yardage, too! Plenty for a stunning masterpiece. This will have to marinate awhile, so that I can find just the right pattern. (Suggestions welcome.)
Lastly, I got to see Bea in action over the holiday break. Here, have some cute baby pictures!
Seeing one’s hand-knits being loved is one of the greatest things ever.
