almost off the needles

left front

My red cabley cardigan! It’s been motoring along despite by lack of faithfulness to the project. Irritatingly, it appears that the first skein I picked up (to knit the left front) was the least variegated and darkest red of the skeins. Clearly I should’ve paid more attention, because it was a bit difficult to pick the skein for the second front! I know I should’ve alternated skeins – I did on the back – but well, I got lazy. The sweater still got made, though!

In fact…

pile o' pieces

That front is the last piece! And it’s actually off the needles now. I’m just about to start sewing it up, then come the bands and collar. Almost done, almost done.

of bells and gloves

So back in September, after I moved, a girl I knew from high school posted that her musical group was looking for another member. I thought hey! that sounds fun! and emailed her back. Of course, being just after I’d moved, it turned out that the rehearsals are back near my parents’ house. D’oh.

It’s a handbell group – yep, like church handbells. We do rehearse in a church (although I’m not a member) once a week, and we’ve got a gig coming up! I’m a little thin on the details, but all I know is that it’s nerd-themed, and we’ll be playing Star Wars (the Imperial March and the opening theme), and the themes to the original Legend of Zelda and Super Mario!

Not exactly what you think of when you think handbell choir, eh? I love that.

Rather than the usual white gloves, we’re a little more into black gloves. I didn’t have any around (I use other gloves for rehearsal), so –

boring black gloves

Too bad black gloves are rather boring to photograph. I’m using St. Denis, which is lovely, and I’d better work on these a little more or they won’t be done in time!

Oh, and a sneak peek for my next new pattern, which will be released later this week – the dipped infinity scarf.
