And the scarf goes on...
The Willoughby scarf is still on the needles, but folks we're talking really close. I've not allowed myself to knit on anything else because I want this done.
Although that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I was going thru my sweater stash to see what would need washing and just checking the condition of my hand knits. I was quite surprised to see so many sweaters.
Do you remember this? It's the Ogee Tunic. I finished this last October and in that years time I've worn this in public twice. I don't like it. It's way to big and it grows with wear. The sleeves are bell shaped and I like bell shaped sleeves, but not when they measure 14 inches of growing fabric.
I frogged it. That sweater no longer exists and let me tell you it was a pain in the ass. I have learned that I certainly know how to weave my ends in so good they don't come undone;)
I unwound the entire sweater with the help of my niddy noddy. Then secured each skein and plopped them into a hot bath with a little sweater soap. I then let them air dry on hangers.
Now that it's dry I've started to swatch. I'm in the designer mood and I've been wanting to get this idea down on paper for some time now.
On another note, I'm signed up to teach my sock class again at Nana's Knitting Shop. If your interested toe-up two-at-a-time on Saturday afternoons let Trish know!
