Yawn!So how come on Sunday, when I could sleep in for as long as I wanted, I woke up at 8, but this morning, I could barely drag my butt out of bed at 7? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Last night we had an amazing thunderstorm- I sat up and watched the lightning show for a bit, and fell asleep listening to the pounding rain. I was glad, though, that I wasn't out in that weather... Cricket agreed that it was much nicer to watch from behind the window.
I realized that the pic yesterday didn't really show the neck steek very well... so if anyone is interested, there is a closer close-up! I'm really flying through Dalmore lately... I'm kinda nervous about the steeks, but then I calm myself with the thought that this shetland wool is like velcro- trying to take out stitches or tease out tangles is pretty difficult. Therefore (or so I keep saying) the sliced steeks will NOT unravel my whole vest, and they will behave like they're supposed to.
I'm not decreasing at the armholes anymore, so the only shaping for the time being is the decreases at the v-neck. In another couple of pattern repeats I'll do some shaping at the back neck, but that's a ways away.
Oh, and I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I was VERY good last weekend and wove in all the non-steek ends on Dalmore. I can definitely understand the attraction of a fair isle cardigan... no ends to mess with! :)
I also finished the first bluebell sock... but I forgot to bring it home with me, so no picture. I'll try and remember to take it with me today... I'm making short anklet socks because I don't want them to itch like the March socks did. I also made the cuff rather loose- I'm not sure if I'll like it, but I guess if it's too loose I can always undo the cuffs later and re-knit them on smaller needles or something. I guess I didn't realize that my ankles were so skinny!
