Um, yeah. You know how it works when I say I’ll be doing something tomorrow? That’s pretty much permission to not check in for a couple days. Apparently.
Anyway, today turned into a beautiful, sunny day, the first since I finished the Honeymoon Cami, so I took some photos for you.
Elsebeth Lavold’s Hempathy (cotton/hemp/modal), color 09 (purple-y blue)
For giggles, I’m also including what I used as a camera stand (lacking a tripod or a human to take the photos for me.)
I’ve finally resurrected my Autumn Rose sweater, and am on the home stretch. I finished the second sleeve and am working my way up the shoulders/yoke. So far it’s looking great.
I was relieved to find that it should fit, as it’s the same size as the Honeymoon Cami (I laid them out together.) The Autumn Rose should grow a bit when blocked (unless the swatch lies!) so I’m excited about it again.
However, I’ve made the most progress on the Gathered Pullover. I’m into the cabling portion!
I like that the majority of this sweater is plain stockinette – it makes for great knitting while doing other things. Like watching tv. Or making dinner. Or Plurking.
So yup, “Plurk” rhymes with “murk,” and I’ve found myself spending an inordinate amount of time on the site. It’s like Twitter; they both work like a multi-person instant-messaging. I believe I first heard about it from Wendy, though it was Opal who convinced me to join. I’ve met a whole slew of “PlurKnitters,” and been able to keep up with some real-life friends who live at far corners of the world from Maine. It’s a fun way to pass the time at home without feeling alone.
Opal and I have started taking 10-minute “spin breaks” to help her keep up with her 10-Minute a Day pledge. (I suppose I should join too, at that…)
So feel free to come on over and Plurk with us! It’s the Plurkiest plurk you’ll find… 🙂
All for now.
