We did indeed get snow.
Not as much in my immediate area as some parts of the Washington metro area, but enough, apparently, to make a tree fall on a main power line (according to my condo building engineer) so I was without electricity for a good chunk of today.
This upset Lucy, who could not settle down.
But the power came back on a couple of hours ago, and Lucy is now napping.
I’m coming down the home stretch on Rose’s second sleeve:
Despite the twistiness of the yarn, the knitted fabric (including a swatch I washed and blocked) is not biasing. Go figure, eh?
A couple of you left comments or emailed me to tell me about ongoing problems Louet has with their over-twisted yarn, and that they had changed mills because of this. The two colors I have were made in different countries: Great Britain and South Africa. And you know what? Equally twisty. Weird.
The only thing I had not tried was untwisting the yarn using a spinning wheel, as some of you suggested. Good idea, but as I’d knitted most of the sweater with the yarn “as-is,” I figured it was too late to switch. So on I knit.
