I fully intended to blog yesterday, but time got away from me, as it has been doing more and more these days.
I had a lovely trip to Charlotte, NC this past weekend, and taught classes to some really great knitters, and had a chance to hang out with some good friends. All in all, a very successful trip. But of course, the return to reality took a bit of time and I’m now dealing with the after-effects of being out of the office for a couple of days. Yikes!
I took CeCe with me as my travel knitting, so managed to make some progress. I got the body done up to the point where you cast off stitches for the armholes.
And I knit one sleeve up to the point of joining it to the body, and am working along on the second sleeve. Because they are short sleeves, this is pretty quick work.
You just get a photo of the second sleeve in progress because I am tired and lazy. Mostly lazy.
The next step will be to put the whole thing together, and then continue to knit back and forth on the body and sleeves at the same time, doing raglan decreases and vee-neck decreases as I go.
I also have a very time-consuming stealth project I need to devote a lot of attention to, so progress on CeCe will continue slowly, I think.
A couple of you ask what I mean by “stealth” projects — these are things I am working on that for one reason or another I am not posting about publicly. That’s all. It’s nothing dramatic — I’m not knitting Kevlar vests for the FBI or anything.
Norwegian Rose KAL
Leslie of The Knitgirllls tells me that they (the Knitgirllls, Leslie and Laura) are starting a knit-along for my Norwegian Rose Socks, which is one of the colorwork patterns in my new book, Toe-Up Socks for Every Body.
They mentioned the knit-along in their latest podcast (check the link above), and there is a thread for it in their Ravelry group.
“I think the Norwegian Rose Socks should be knit in chocolate and cream so that they match my beautiful fur.”
