I was out shopping for some yarn for my SIL when I found a few goodies for myself.
Although I haven't been writing, I have been knitting. In late October I started a sweater for my sister made from yarn she brought home from Iceland back in 2016. I'm in the home stretch, working on the yoke of Mora. I hope to have it finished to give to her when I see her next week. She has stopped asking about it, and I haven't told her that I started it, so it will likely be a fun surprise.
Knitting it has gotten me in the mood for more colorwork--which is good because I plan to make another Mora for myself--she brought home enough yarn for two sweaters. A few weeks ago some ravelry friends were mentioning the latest interweave knits. I haven't had any interest in Interweave since I let my subscription lapse a few years ago. But this issue was different. This winter issue had some sweaters that looked like things I would wear. So I grabbed it today.
I have also been intrigued by posts over the past few months by Sonya Phillips on Mason Dixon Knitting. They make me want to make my own clothes. I have some books about sewing, but maybe this one will get me going.
Looking forward to reading, knitting and sleeping over this winter break.
I was just looking over the blog and realized that I missed my 10 year blogiversary earlier this month. Though I haven't been keeping up with the blog much (let's face it, I'm the only one that reads it) I have been doing some knitting.
The long promised sweater for my sister (made from yarn and a pattern book she got in Iceland) is nearing completion. Arms have been joined to the body. Now to finish the yoke.
