Thought you were gonna see an update photo here, didn’t you? Huh? HUH?
Nope, haven’t knitted on poor Ingeborg since Sunday morning. But I’ll do a bit on her before the weekend so she doesn’t feel too neglected.
I was asked in the comments the other day how I liked knitting on Ingeborg slowly, as a secondary project.
I like it and I don’t like it.
On the one hand, I don’t feel my usual compulsion to knit the thing as quickly as possible. I don’t have the usual drive I feel that makes me want to get something done — NOW. And that’s a good thing. Less stress.
But on the other hand, I’m sort of sick of Ingeborg because she’s been lying around in an unfinished state too long. There’s still a lot to do before she’s done — this design has a lot of finishing work. There’s that lace edging to be knit and applied after the neckband and front bands are done. So it seems like it’ll be a lo-o-ong time before I can get her done and over with. Yawn. There are other things I want to do.
But I’ll stick with her and get her done.
So there you have it. Proof that I’m never satisfied.
Lucky, on the other hand, has had my almost-full attention. I finished the back:
And started on the front.
Knitting the Jaeger Silk 4-ply is simply heavenly. Full stop.
The Evening Sporran
. . . is actually a Fiber Trends pattern: AC-45 “Night on the Town.” I bought mine at Knit Happens.

My Harris Tweed teddy bear?
He was a gift from L-B. He’s an elderly gentleman from the Isle of Lewis and I think he’s gorgeous!
You call this a mouse?
