Well, I am going to do the same with the corporate taxes. They are taking HOURS, and I am pretty organized, math nerd that I am. So, I have decided as soon as they are filed I am treating myself to some Koigu. I have been wanting to try this for SOOOO long, and it might as well be a reward for something. Plus, my parents are visiting in late February. The husband and I are going for a weekend away. If I can get the taxes done and yarn ordered by then, I’ll have something great to knit on the trip!
Now, some photos (finally!)
Hopefully I can finish that cardigan soon. The color is not exact, but since it is just for seaming, the button band and collar I doubt it will show. I’ll have to play with the collar a bit. I know what I want it to look like, but it is going to take some doing. I am planning on having it in the same cable as the border:
I am doodling up a sketch for a new kids sweater. Some cables, top down raglan, cabled yoke…
I am thinking cotton, so it’s washable. I’d like a light color, but I also have that pink from Webs, so I might swatch in that.
I am still working on the pattern. It is remarkably simple, plus it is done in one piece, so there is no seaming. The only hassle is sewing in the lining, but that took less than 15 minutes to do. If the husband gets home before dark I;ll try to get an action shot. I tried to get Girl#2 to help, but at two years old she was monre interested in all the buttons I had just handed her.
Oh, and the elephants:
