Seabreeze sweater – finally complete! I finished it about an hour before it was ‘due’. Yay. I love this sweater, and the yarn is divine – so soft and silky and it feels marvelous against the skin, even after being washed several times. It’s pricier than I might otherwise be willing to pay for enough yarn to make a sweater, but both the T3 and Seabreeze turned out so lovely that I think the cost was more than worth it. I’ve plans to attend Stitches West in February, and I’ll be keeping my eye out for the Tess Yarns table to grab some more of her gorgeous superwash merino.
Now that the Christmas knitting is finally done I can turn my sights on the next few months. There’s a birthday coming up for which I am going to try to whip up a lovely heathered grey vest (although I may break down and see if I can borrow a friend’s knitting machine to zip through the back, because I don’t have much time). I’ve already made quite a bit of headway on the first baby blanket, a diagonal knit of some lovely green Lion Homespun, with an eyelet border. I am pondering getting a length of ribbon in a contrasting color to weave through the eyelets, just to soften it up a bit.
Pictures will be forthcoming, as will an archive of finished objects (because I think maybe I really ought to have one).
