but I am wearing a sweater!
(Boy, that mirror is dirty.) I can justify the sweater, though. Take a look at the mountains:
See? There’s snow up there! Also, I think there is some kind of rule that you have to wear your first sweater the second it is done. (Okay, not true. This isn’t exactly the first sweater I’ve made. Over the summer, I knit Coachella, but the neckline turned out a bit too low to be worn in most situations…More on that someday.)
Anyway, I spent much of last night finishing the ribbing. Here’s a shot of the shrug in vest form:
I spent all morning seaming. I was a bit unclear about how everything was supposed to line up — no schematic — so I ended up seaming most of the sleeve caps, looking at them, and realizing that I needed to seam a few inches more of the sleeeves to the body. This process created many ends to weave in.
Somebody was pouting. In all fairness, he did miss a leisurely Sunday stroll. (His life is extremely hard.)
A few more pictures of my finished Bolero Jacket:
The necklace I’m wearing, by the way, is made by Lisa Donald, a friend who also makes/sells jewelry. She has a great eye — this is made from a clip-on earring that feels very 1960s to me. How convenient that it matches this sweater perfectly!
Posting may be sporadic this week — a dear friend flies in tonight to spend 4 days playing with me and Boh!
