The craft goes on, in spite of our losses, and I am feeling very proud of my progress. Wombat got a new sweater, as he forgot to pack one when he came to stay with us this weekend. Goodbye 80ish yards of acrylicness, HELLO BITCHIN' DOG SWEATER!!!
This is the best fit I've achieved yet. Next time: Cables! Of course, once we saw him lookin' all fly in his new outfit, we each had to have our photo taken with him.
(Note to self: Smile with teeth next time)
I've also spent some time working on Jaywalker 2.2. I turned the heel today, and I am now working on the heel decreases. It should be done by this weekend, I'd imagine.
I also decided to "invent" a sock... if you can even call it that. It's basically just a stockinette stitch sock with a little bit of ankle shaping... I am seriously uncertain as to whether or not it's working... I just winged it because I wanted something easy to knit during the dance competition we watched on Saturday night. I may frog it and try again with a few more stitches so that I can make them into knee-highs (does anyone know if you can make an entire knee high sock out of one ball of Lorna's Shepherd Sock?). We'll see. Jaywalker 2.2 is taking precendence anyway... I'll worry about this one afterward.
So that's that.
I've at least temporarily abandonned the Capecho due to reports that it fits really poncho-ish and not very cropped cardigan-ish as it appears on the cover of the magazine. That won't due. I'm thinking about making the smaller size, but otherwise I'll just use the yarn for something else.
Senor's sweater front continues slowly... I'll get there, people.
THE BEAN IS BORN!!!!!
IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! She's 2 and a half hours old!! She doesn't have a name yet, and she's just a wee thing, 6lb 4oz.
Bring on the pink yarn!
