For this week's Yarn Along, I'm still reading on Folks, this ain't normal. (Don't judge me.) For as long as it's taking me to get through, I really am still enjoying this book quite immensely.
I've also finished the first knee sock for Elizabeth's birthday socks. The second sock is barely begun, but I'm confident that I can finish in the next week and a half before her birthday. If there's anything the Christmas sock race gave me it's the luxury of time when I only have to knit 1 sock in 1.5 weeks instead of 3 pairs in 3 weeks. ;)
Her birthday sweater is finally finished, seamed and ready to go. I think she'll really enjoy this soft rainbow sweater. Self-striping yarn is always interesting to me when you have a style like raglan to see the thinner stripes grow wider at the top. The beauty of handmade, I guess.
This sweater was very simple as sweaters go, but my ravelry notes are here if you are interested.
LOVE the sweater! I can't wait to see photos of Elizabeth wearing it.ReplyDelete
The sweater is gorgeous. I've added the pattern to my ravelry queue. I also LOVE the knee socks!! I want a pair for myself! :-)ReplyDelete
That rainbow sweater is amazing, I love it! The socks look fab too, no doubt you'll finish them in plenty of time (3 pairs in 3 weeks before Christmas sounds terrifying!)ReplyDelete
She'll be one colorful girl. Love the socks.ReplyDelete

I judge you not. I take forever reading books too. Especially when I do my reading at night. I fall asleep half the time. The sweater looks so cheerful!!ReplyDelete
