Several of you asked to see the new dishes. I’ve also been asked to show the progress on Hannah’s February Lady Sweater. Since I’m all about the multi-tasking, I present both:
Hannah didn’t quite understand why I asked her to sit at the kitchen table and model the partially finished sweater. Then I explained that I wanted to show you the dishes so she happily did her Carol Merrill thing.
Yes, they are square. Dale wasn’t sure what he thought about square dishes but he’s managed to overcome his aversion to them and he eats his dinner just fine.
So, the sweater is moving along nicely. The yarn is Dream in Color Classy and I love working with it. It’s smooshy and squooshy and the color is great. Hannah is tiny so I was worried that the XXS wouldn’t be small enough. Wouldn’t you know I had the yoke all done on size 6 needles and it was too small (yes, I knit a gauge swatch and yes, gauge swatches lie) so I ripped and started again on size 7s and now the fit is just right. Time to visit sleeve island.
Who would have thought I could pull together a post from dishes and a sweater. I think I’m really be stretching my use of the word blogger.
