This pile o’ knitting is my lace tunic.
Next time you see it, it will be assembled and actually looking like a sweater. Honest!
On Friday night I finished the first sleeve and attached it to the body via a three-needle bind-off — I picked up stitches along the edge of the body and bound those off with the live stitches at the top of the sleeve. I’ve picked up the stitches along the other side and finished the second sleeve last night. So sleeve attachment will take place this afternoon.
Then all that remains is a final steam-blocking and sewing up of side seams.
I started my Campy Loopy Project II last night:
As you can see, this is a cabled mitten. I’m using Madelinetosh DK in the “Kelp” colorway and U.S. size 5 needles. The pattern is my own design.
That’s about it for today. Lucy has been checking the tv listings as she plans to relax and watch movies all afternoon.
