Knitting, knitting...lots of knitting...
...and a little sewing...
I finished the Summer Lacy Top!!!
I thought I never would.
This little project took up two years of my life. Not continuously, of course, because it was in total time out for about a year, but still. The pattern drove me crazy with the shoulder and neck shaping (mainly because of limited direction)...so I totally did my own thing there. I loved knitting it (both times) though. It really was enjoyable. The yarn was yummy - albeit a little hard on the hands. It is Marisol Yarn Wach'i - a beautiful cotton and silk blend and I love the color. It was a happy experience overall - despite the bumps in the road.
I even wore it today - hence the self photography.
Here are the cute little burpies I made the other day. I use prefolded diapers and slap a little fabric on them - and Bob's your uncle!
Now, the dreaded Aragorn socks need to be finished, but since I missed the deadline for the challenge by a mile, I figured I can work on them quietly in the background while I move the Saroyan and the Lavendar Cardigan to the forefront.
The MT MCN in Oceana came yesterday:
I think it is the best choice for the Lazy Girl Shawl. I intend to start it on Sunday afternoon.
So, that leaves me with two skeins of Oceana on Tosh Merino Light...what to do...what to do?
