In my recent lull before continuing with the entrelac sweater, I've started this:
It's a kit from SweaterKits.com, for a cotton tee. It's knit from side to side, so the striping effect will go the right way for a change. This is quite a change from knitting with a soft wool...the purl bumps feel rough on my fingers as I work. Size 6 needles, so it's a bit slow going. However, I am enchanted with the subtle color changes and the small pattern effects, and it makes up for the discomforts....so far.
Thursday night is my next entrelac class, and then I'll be back full tilt working on that sweater. This tee will get shoved aside for awhile. I have struggled recently with how to get the entrelac sweater ready for the neck shaping. Note to Sarah: I almost failed geometry in high school. I've always blamed it on the teacher, but now I'm not so sure. I simply can't conceptualize what I have to do with squares and triangles to get the front and back in the right places.
My mother reads my blog, and she thinks I don't have a life anymore. She thinks all I do is knit and read. (Yeah, and what's wrong with that??) So this paragraph is for my mom. Yesterday I had dinner with friends, and then my daughter came over. She's staying with me for a few days while her car is being fixed. Today I worked, and then went to Curves (yay!), and then took a nap. Now I'm blogging, and soon I'll be knitting. Hmm...my mom might be right.
My sweetie is in El Salvador this week, visiting his son. Now HE is having a life.
