In which there is body

About 7" into the body! (Aiming for 17", I think) I juuuuuuuust might get this done by the time classes start, if I can get the body done by the end of the week.

In which Ms H. is always right

So, this was a belated birthday knit for Ms H.
I loved knitting it, the yarn is a delight as always, and it was the perfect cool-down project after the long haul of Peacock Feathers. Best of all, it was very well received (always a relief, eh gift knitters?).

Didn't get the opportunity to get many photos of this one (I really want to rustle up a mannequin or dress form to help with FO photo shoots), but that's not always what matters.

Pattern: Silk Kerchief by Kate Gagnon (rav link)
Yarn: Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 (unknown colours)
Needles: Addi Lace 3.5mm
Start: July 14, 2009
End: August 7, 2009
Modifications: Madelinetosh inspired ruffle (rav link), but with an increase of 2 stitches per 3, instead of 1 per 2, just for that extra ruffle ;)
Verdict: Thumbs up across the board in every single department. No complaints. I kind of want one now for myself...



I couldn't resist this one. Whaddaya think, my colours?

In which news of sorts abounds

So, bad news first?
It's overcast and gloomy and I can't get any good light for a photo of a finished sweater sleeve.

Good news?
There is a finished sleeve to not have photos taken of.
There is a second sleeve that has been started.
There is an FO to be washed, blocked, photographed and gifted in the near future. Y'all are going to have to wait for that one.
