So it looks as though I am blogging once a month at this point. I may yet get back in the habit of blogging regularly . . . we shall see. My hosting plan is up for renewal this month and I decided to renew for another year. So I can put off deciding whether or not to scrap the whole thing for another year.

So I finished this:

This is Emily (warning — Ravelry link) designed by Emily Greene. I knit mine in Harrisville Designs Daylight in the Caffeine colorway. This is a lovely lovely cormo blend yarn and I really enjoyed knitting with it.

Then I started this:

This is Stornoway, designed by Alice Starmore from her book Fishermen’s Sweaters. I’m using Frangipani 5-ply guernsey wool in the Aran colorway, on a 3.0mm needle. While it is a huger number of stitches around, it’s a fairly easy knit — the motifs are easily memorized.

Loki takes seriously his job of keeping my cone o’ yarn in place!
