I am a walking drought.
but better. This is a little tease we got. Wind, clouds thunder. It moved on just as I got excited about the possibility. Hummmmppph.
I have been working diligently on the Season of Darkness and Winter Light. I am becoming rather dark myself as I realized my gauge has been getting a little tighter. Sheeesh! It is non-related stress issues. Don't worry, I am fine. Just keep your fingers crossed that this thing fits decently. I think it will be fine in blocking, tho. I will just block the crap out of it on my wooley board. I will have to let the arms on the board drop as these are bell sleeves, but I think it can be done just fine. (fingers crossed)
Here is the steek at the underarm.
It is a really interesting pattern for those of you not familiar. It is knitted in two separate mirrored halves-both from the arm up. The actual body continues sideways in the round to the center back with a steek at the underarm for a few inches. Then they are cut open and grafted together at the center back. It took me a while to actually visualize how this was going to take place. A long while-involving a mini paper pattern and a glass of wine.
And of course, the obligatory pic of the major time consumer of my life. :0)
