can we make it last like a musical ride?

Title courtesy of Neil. These days, my late evenings have been filled with flickering campfires, a handful of friends warbling and strumming the depressing ballads of Mr. Young, and (many) beverages of the wheat variety. Go ahead, feel sorry for me. (My days have been both full and early. I’m going to need to get a bit more sleep in the coming weeks…) Anyway, I’m in town for the evening to run some errands before heading back out, and have worked up the motivation for a post. After all, I have sweater progress to share!

This is really coming along. I am halfway through the portion below the gathered section — which is significant, because in order to create that pintuck effect, you actually double the body stitches at the “gather”, making the knitting seem extremely slow-going. This sweater has gorgeous drape, and I am excited to complete it. My only concern is that it won’t be “me”, but I’ll have to finish it to find out.

Here are a few pictures from the week:

Boh has found a dear friend — I think he’s going to have a good summer frolicking with Oso.

Some Indian Paintbrush I stopped to photograph on my morning walk to the office. More soon. Have a great week!

  1. The cardi’s looking great! From what I’ve seen of your style, I can definitely see you in the sweater with a long sleeved tee underneath.

    P.S. I feel soooooo sorry for you. :) Geez, sitting around a campfire drinking beer and singing/playing Neil Young songs sounds like heaven…

  2. Looks like you had help with the photography. Sweater looks great and it was awesome to see it in person.

  3. Your evenings sound positively fabulous, I can’t think of many better ways to spend the time – and your sweater looks great!! I love that mustard color. I can’t wait to see it :)
