Busy busy busy this week, so just a quick post today.
Sunday afternoon I made some good progress on my Diamond Gansey. I joined the front and the back at the shoulders using a three-needle bind-off, and I picked up stitches around the neck and knit a narrow neckband.
I also picked up stitches along one side so I will be able to attach the sleeve using a three-needle bind-off.
I’ve gotten a fair amount done on the first sleeve — I ought to be able to finish this sleeve tonight.
The winner of the Jordana Paige Craft Tool Butler, chosen at random from the comments on the post that announced the contest, is, for a change, a guy: Small Town Knit Guy Rusty! Rusty has been contacted. Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and a big thank you to Jordana Paige for supplying such a lovely prize for the giveaway.
While my Diamond Gansey will not be done by the next blog post, I hope to be working on the second sleeve. We’ll see.
Lucy is hard at work too.
