We're Halfway There
Both of my current projects are over halfway complete. Using the unspun Icelandic, here's the progress on the pereline:
It's true nature will be revealed off the needles. The unspun has been fine to work with; I think I've only had to spit splice it together once so far. After the brown showing will be a darker, richer brown to finish off the bottom.
And then there's C's hiking gansey:
The zipper is just basted in for now, but I think it will work! I went down to a size 1 on the upper body to keep the garter stitch ridges from puckering out too much; I'm awfully glad to be back to a size 2 on the sleeves. Onward!
And I had such fun with Alison's Socka-pal-2-za-along, I've joined Nona's Peaceful Palms gloves knit-along. With the finished-by date of January 31, I'm sure I'll make it; although I'm itching to start now, I'm resolved to finish my WIPs first (we'll see how long that lasts). Now to figure out how to put Nona's button on my blog...
