in the meantime
Husband Sweater #2 is off the needles and blocking slowly in the guest room. The Husband is impatient to wear it and I’m impatient to get some finished object photos. Sadly we’re both going to have to wait until Saturday morning when there’s some decent daylight (and when the effin’ thing is finally dry.)
In the meantime, I’ve kept myself busy knitting up a quick Alpaca Neckwarmer. I think this one took longer to block than it did to knit. Speedy! A proper modeled shot will have to wait until Saturday as well. All my efforts this morning
came out myspace-like (mostly rack and hardly any FO.) It’s time to invest in a new tripod and camera remote. Santa?
Pattern: Yarn Abuse’s Cashmere Neckwarmer
Yarn: One skein of Elsebeth Lavold Chunky AL. 50% Alpaca, 50% Wool
Needles: Size 11 US (8.0mm) bamboo
Modifications: I was knitting at a slightly smaller gauge than called for in the pattern, so I cast on 19 instead of 15.
