The third milestone is done. I can’t believe I actually met a self-imposed deadline. Or any deadline, for that matter.
This is going to be a very obvious first sweater. There are errors everywhere, but most of them are invisible, like a cable crossing over knit stitches instead of purl stitches. I can’t really tell any difference unless I’ve got my nose an inch away from the fabric. So I think I can live with these little “character” marks.
So that officially makes the sweater half done. Three milestones down, three to go (although I suspect the sleeves are going to take longer than the front and back panels).
I also swung by the Yarn Barn today and grabbed five skeins of Sirdar Romance, the same black-and-silver stuff that I used to make the final Cecilia Kufi. I’m going to put several of those up and see if I can sell them. That may be tough in Texas in June. Wish me luck.
Hey, before I go and scarf down a couple kilos of Vietnamese food, has anyone ever been to the Dixon Fiber Fair in California? I’m planning on going at the end of July.
