Last month, a friend of mine gave me a chair of hers that I loved to sit in whenever I went to her apartment. She’d been planning to give it away for over a year but waited until she replaced it with a new chair. Anyway, this afternoon, DB and I moved it from the garage into the den. As I took pictures I found that it won’t be very ideal for photos like the previous one, because things just slide right off. But for tonight, I kept it in the photos.
Here is the hemp and wool Berkshire Pullover from Weekend Knitting. It feels like nothing changes from picture to picture that I post of this sweater. But things really are coming along. This time one sleeve is complete and the other one is started. I’m so relieved to have one sleeve done. I want to use this pattern a few more times but from here on out I’m not going to knit the sleeves directly onto the body. For me, that’s a real pain and I’d rather just have to seam the sleeves to the body.
Note the red and green striped Manos to the right of the plum Knitpicks yarn – it matches this bulky weight from the Black Sheep Gathering perfectly (in person it really does, it didn’t photograph as well as the other one)!
I received some wonderful gifts from my Secret Pal last week! My pal ordered me the Erte cloche pattern from Marnie and the Marilyn’ s Not-So-Shrunken Cardigan pattern from Wendy. And my pal also made a donation to Habitat for Humanity in my name, which I received a very lovely card for – thanks, Secret Pal! As for my pal, I’m going to Portland tomorrow (to a bigger yarn store) so I’m going to keep my eye out for some goodies for her.
I really got "link happy" with this post! At least one finished object this week, I’m sure of it! See you all in the next few days.
