I Made it to the Blogosphere
That was just too easy. I've been thinking this was going to be a strenuous adventure, but here I am. Intact and unscathed.
I'm just beginning to feel human again after enduring the 100-day flu. When I wasn't comatose, I was knitting. Some days I didn't even knit. Got front number two and one sleeve done on the Kilcar sweater. Someday I'll post the picture. I'm trying to finish up many UFOs before I start the Juliaca sweater from Jane Ellison's Mirasol Project, Book One. Her baby Llama wool is whispering to me daily...It's the most gorgeous teal blue I've ever seen, and SO SO soft. When it's done, I'll have pictures. This shot of the skeins doesn't do the jade colour justice at all.
To break up the monotony of the Kilcar, I finished a pair of half gloves (Jane Ellison) and knit a sock for the husband. It's thick and soft - Cascade The Heathers with a strand of Madil Kid Seta. This is the second pair I've knit for him and again I'm pleasantly surprised at how well they fit. They're too thick for regular shoes, but he wears them around the house. He's too much of a man's man to purr in them, but they're now part of the come-home-from-work-lose-the-monkey-suit-don-the-sweats ensemble that he lives in.
Well, I've babbled enough for my first crack at this...Crack...hmmm....That's a story for another day...
