I am going to have to flip my tag line to reflect the amount of noshing and lack of knitting going on around here. I would love to tell you that the knitting has been happening, and that I have just been behind with photos, but that is not true. The final six weeks of 2010 my knitting mojo took a little vacation. I am not sure if it has returned, or if it is just sending postcards.
Colorway, Oceanic. MM, lovely to spin.
Before Oceanic could hit the wheel, Dirt needed to come off.
Another Southern Cross Club shipment, no idea of the fiber, but the name Dirt is appropriate.
As for knitting, on January 1 I began Vodka Gimlet. Normally I consider gimlets a summer activity, but I can be flexible.
I am not a sweater maker, have never knit a top down ragland, and placed many frantic emails to my friend Mary to get me this far. I feel so lucky to have such an extraordinary sweater maker on my side.
I need to work 6 inches below the armhole before I begin waist shaping which leaves me less than two inches to go. It is surprising how quickly the thing is knitting up and I am hopeful to reach the waist shaping by the end of the weekend.
