Thank you to the scores and scores (over 300, to be exact) of you who offered to test knit my pattern-in-the-making. The overwhelming response to my request makes it impossible for me to email each of you who offered and thank you personally, unless I want to give up knitting and spend the next 12 hours emailing. So please consider yourselves thanked. So much.
I think I have my three test knitters. I say three because so many of you emailed me and asked me to add a smaller size which — duh — should have occurred to me. So I’ve added a 35″ size. And I’ve emailed three of the knitters who so generously contacted me and offered to test-knit.
Still on Sleeve Island
But what an island it is! Tropical breezes, tequila sunrises and kir royales . . . and hunky cabana boys. Becky, I know you didn’t say anything about cabana boys, but surely if I’m gonna have tequila sunrises I need a shirtless stud to serve them to me and gaze adoringly at me whilst I sip them daintily.
Sorry. I may have strayed away from the point, but I’m back now.
Well, here is sleevie number one. She’s obviously tired of being photographed — she’s over-exposed!
And sleevie number two. Much more true to color.
So Audrey is progressing very nicely. I’ll have the sleeve done in a couple of days, and can start on the lace collar band then. That’ll be a bit tricky, as you have to fit it around the top and stretch it slightly to fit. Whatta pain.
But the finished Audreys I’ve seen in bloggyland make me think it’s worth the effort.
Here’s Kristine, putting my Official Knit Happens poncho in the window of — you guessed it — Knit Happens! So if you’re within a 300-mile radius, do stop by and say hello to my poncho. And buy lots of yarn while you’re there. Why? Because I say so . . . see?
And because I love this wonderful shop!
And because they have enough fabulous yarn to make your head spin!
Lucy says “meow.”
Thank you to Sylvia, who pointed out that WendyKnits made the PR Newswire!
