The last of our guests trickled out the door today. It’s very quiet around here!!
I got deplorably little knitting accomplished, turned on the computer infrequently, and had a wonderful time with the extended family. Now that I’ve had my family vacation I’m ready for a knitting and blogging vacation!
I do have a little something to show you…
The beginnings of Nikolai’s Pirate Sweater. The wool is quite a bit more golden than that picture. Personally I think the color is stunningly beautiful, but I could see some folks finding it a bit overpowering. It’s KnitPicks Telemark in Brass Heather.
I’m not sure I’ll have enough wool. I’m well into my 3rd of 6 skeins and not even close to the armpits! Eeek!! Should I order more now so I have it when I need it? or just wait and see? I’m very tempted to order more now because it’s just so nice to get wool in the mail!
I’m copying/borrowing quite closely Mandy‘s Pirate Sweater that she made for her son last winter. It will be a seamless saddle shoulder sweater following EZ’s directions in Knitting Workshop and The Opinionated Knitter. The skull and crossbones chart comes from Helloyarn.
All you Harry Potter people- Did Dolores Umbridge had the Horcrux when she was at Hogwarts? I don’t want to excuse her evilness, but was it a factor?
