I’ve made it to the interesting part of Oranje - the colorwork! Here’s after the first pass of stripes on the yoke:
And here’s a close up of the joggless stripey:
Not too bad if I say so myself.
I have 16 days to finish the sweater – I’m not doing the button closure, instead opting for a zipper. Thanks to the super tutorial that I found on Google+, I hope that it will be a breeze. Nothing else is really moving on the needles currently – I’m about to start a mini KAL for some endpaper mitts to burn up some more stash yarn (YAY). I’ll post about that later this week.
So as part of our great “weekend” in the Berkshires, Sharon and I headed to WEBS on our way home. It was Sharon’s first time at WEBS (hard to believe!) and we had a blast:
I managed to only buy 5 skeins of yarn and have one photo to show for it -
3 skeins of MadelineTosh Vintage in the Lepidoptra colorway. We’re planning a mini-KAL of Watershed (ravelry link). I can’t wait to get started. Clearly I’m on a pink kick?
I’m working my way through the waist shaping and just started my second skein of the pink yarn. Maybe I can finish the body by the end of the weekend thanks to the stupid hurricane.
