Or in this case, finish peeling the beet and add it to the pot. It does look like a heart though, right? This post shares its title is with a Bela Fleck album (vol. 3) I received in the mail along with a beautiful hand-stamped valentine that is already on the fridge. This music, a combination of Bela Fleck’s banjo and the voices/instruments he encountered as he traveled through several African countries, makes me smile. And I need that today.
To continue with the music references, I give you my garter yoke cardigan, revisited. (Yes, I’m a nerd.)
(That is a cardboard box behind my arm — the cardigan hangs straight down.)
I attempted to block it longer and narrower in both the sleeves and the body, and I think I managed to turn this into a leaner, slouchier cardigan.
Boh seems to agree. I’m going to wear this out of the house this week!
Yes – it definitely looks leaner and more fitted. Good blocking!
I really like the cardigan; you definitely should wear it out of the house! And I love my Bela Fleck album, got it in November from my sweetie.
Nice work on the blocking. Isn’t it amazing how forgiving and pliable yarn can be?! Definitely you need to wear this one out of the house!
Looks great! And the heart-shaped beat is pretty perfect, too. Hope tomorrow brings some smiles …
The sweater looks great! Nice blocking job.
It looks perfect!!Blocking is a fabulous thing.
the blocking made a big difference. I think it looks really comfy!
i love your garter yoke cardigan – it’s so wearable and lovely. totally makes me want to knit another one!
I agree wholeheartedly. The cardi looks fabulous. :)
Love the colours in the yolk, looks great on you.
I think the blocking was a good call–I love the longer, slimmer look!
