This is not one of those beautiful blogs like I admire so much. You know--the ones with artfully arranged objects, natural lighting, and breathtaking photography. Now, I do have a kick-ass camera, but really it's Hubby's, since I have no photographic skills. I could ask him to take pics, but he's already indulging me by watching the kids or taking care of other things while I knit, so when it's my turn to do all that, he deserves to have time to himself to do whatever he really wants. Also, I hardly ever get to do anything knitting-related when there is natural light to be had. Nope, it's mostly late at night after the kids (and often Hubby) have gone to bed. Hence the crappy photos.
But I did want to show my progress on the sweater.
It's taking shape! As you can see, I've done one sleeve. The math came out right, and the sleeve hits where I wanted it to, low on the hand. I'm basting it so I can try it on as I go along--something I remember to do from my sewing days. It's a quick-and-dirty basting, with just safety pins (and not even the coilless ones--gasp!).
Unfortunately, it's already turning too warm to wear this thing. I'm hoping for just 1 more cold snap in a week or two so that I won't have to wait till fall to debut it!
