If you said something nice about me on your blog and I didn’t comment on it — I’m sorry.
Hmmmmm, that should just about cover it. I’ve been too busy for much of anything, save a quick jaunt around my daily read blogs.
Yup, I’m still really really busy. But I’ll answer a comment question today from a few days ago.
What Size Starmore Sweaters Do I Make?
The answer is . . . it depends. A lot of Starmore sweaters are wa-a-ay oversized, with only a couple of sizes. In those cases I make the size Small, which usually comes out to about a 44-45″ chest measurement, so they are still plenty big on me. I like my sweaters oversized, so that’s not a problem for me. I’m making the smaller size of Hank 8, which I think is 44″ around.
I’ve noticed the new Starmore designs on Virtualyarns seem to com in a wider variety of sizes. It’s a good thing!
Hank 8 Update
Hank is chugging merrily along. I bound off the second shoulder last night, using the three-needle bind-off. Here it is, all cast off.
Cut open the neck steeks, lookie:
Tomorrow, if you’re good, you may see the neckband.
Hey! Teresa has either cut or is poised to cut the steeks on Roscalie! Head on over to her blog and cheer her on! Woo-hoo!
Peter asked me if I plan to go back to texture knitting any time this year (or ever). The answer is . . . uh, I dunno. Maybe. Ever? Well, yes, I’m sure I’ll knit something aran-like at some point again in my lifetime. Maybe sooner than you (and I) think!
