I finally wrote my last exam of the summer yesterday, and now I’ve got a whole three weeks off before the fall term starts! Yippee! Although, I did decide to finally get off my ass about driving, so the week of the 29th I’ll be in 5-day intensive driving school….but at least it’s not regular school!
And since you asked so nicely lynette…
I wore OSW for a short period yesterday to take this photo, and to make dinner. I found that…I didn’t like wearing it. Armpit wedgie, and all that. It may have just been that particular shirt, though – I’ll give it another go sometime.
In the meanwhile, I whipped up one (just one) handwarmer for my little sister’s birthday, out of leftover Shine. It’s cute! And since it only took about an hour, I can afford to wait a few days before doing the other one. I think she wants a scarf, too – maybe I should just get it all done so I don’t have to worry about it anymore.
I spun this up:
I’m calling it “haze”, but I’m too lazy to figure out the yardage. Something like 200 yards, probably. I’ve got another 4 oz of this colourway, but…I don’t think I like it much. Maybe I’ll overdye it; I haven’t done any dyeing in a long while!
Annnndddd…..presenting the beginning of the Rebecca Jacke….en blueberry. Yep, I just went completely elsewhere with the colour. This was what I wanted to do the sweater originally (months ago) but I thought maybe I should do it in something brighter. But jae was right – fall is coming, after all.
I’m aware the ribbing kind of looks like crap. But, this is cotton-ease that was already knit into Syncopated Ribs (from IK fall 2004) and then frogged. Washing will help. Just a few more cm’s and I’ll be ready to start the back yarnover pattern!
