Tangled LoveTangled Yoke... she is done!!! I blocked her yesterday/last night... and I stretched her sleeves and body as much as I could. This yarn (School Products merino/acrylic) is a bit strange - I had blocked the sleeves to 18" before joining them to the yoke... and then, when I went to sew them up, they were a nice 17.25". Huh? So right now the sleeves are the smallest touch too long, but I'm thinking they'll snug back up to hopefully between 18 and 19".
I love this sweater. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I love the color that I ended up with, even though it wasn't what I had in mind when I poured in the dye, and I love that I finally managed to dye MORE yarn than I needed to finish a project. I think I'll use the extra for a little girl baby gift... maybe I'll knit a little sweater or something!
I went with plain buttons since the cables are what should stand out - the buttons are kind of pink/white swirly, but blend in quite well.
I'll try to take some proper pictures later today!
And on a totally unrelated topic, last night S and I took Abbers on a field trip... just a few minutes up the road. It was a nice reminder of how beautiful DC can be...
Of course, Abby is WAY TOO COOL to sit by us when we took a break. She is exactly like that teenager whose mom insists on coming with her to the mall, so she tries to pretend that she is NOT WITH MOM.
Apparently, though, she's totally happy to be snuggled when she's at home... here's a random sampling of pictures I've taken after S comes home from work...
It's a good thing Abby likes me, or else S might have to re-think this whole wedding thing... boys and their doggies are pretty adorable!
