. . . for blogging, I fear.
But you do get an updated photo of Hank. Amazingly, after an insane day at work, I actually got a bit of knitting done last night. So here is the first sleeve in all its splendor.
And here, just for grins, is a view of the shoulder seam, done with the three needle bind-off.
I do like the look of the three-needle bind-off.
Geane asked me yesterday, since I mentioned I was considering doing an “easy” sweater next, if I considered Henry hard. No, not really, I don’t. I find vertical patterns pretty simple to do. I think what I meant is that I’m thinking of doing something with fewer colors. I was tempted to do Marina, but the thought of keeping track of 21 different colors doesn’t appeal to me right now.
I think I’m gonna make Dale of Norway St. Moritz next. Not only is it fewer colors and larger gauge than an AS fair isle, but I don’t have to wind the wool into balls. Ahhhhhhh . . .
I’m thinking laziness will win out on this one.
