It may have been a three-day weekend for me, but it went by in a flash. What’s with that?
I did, however, finish the first Poetry in Stitches sleeve:
I got a good start on the second sleeve as well.
At some point this week I’ll machine stitche the steeks on the body and knit the i-cord neck. Could have done that last night, as I now know how deep to make the armhole because I’ve got a sleeve done (11.5″ for those who want details), but didn’t feel like it. Maybe tonight.
So what’s next on the knitting agenda after I complete the PiS sweater?
Should be fun, I think. I really like the border around the bottom.
So a good weekend was had by all. Lucy and I threw a nice birthday party for Lucy’s daddy. Lucy got brushed, and took a nap right afterwards.
She seems to have gotten her winter coat — very thick and plushy. The state of her coat might be due in part to the fact that I’ve switched her to Artemis Cat Food. Barbara (of Capital Animal Care) recommended it and gave me some samples. Lucy adores it, and it’s very good for her. It’s not cheap, but my little angel derserves the best nutrition.
Well, I’d show you a photo of my Booga Bag in progress, but it would be the same photo as Friday. But I’ll get the knitting done on it this week. And in answer to a comments question, my pre-felted gauge is 3 st/inch.
Have a good Monday, all!
