Works in progress
I realised I have not blogged about Leon's aran jumper since before I actually cast in on, but I have been knitting away on it. Today I did the front neck and am now only 12 rounds from finishing the body of it. I'm not far off finishing the second sleeve, either. This means I could be steeking as early as Thursday.
(Is it weird that I'm knitting a jumper the exact colour of my carpet?)
I don't want to rush the knitting though, although I am enjoying it the weight and the cables are making my arms and shoulders rather sore. Last week, when I arrived at knit night Danielle was on her way to get a massage at the Chinese massage place three doors down. How can I not have noticed the existence of a Chinese massage place that close to somewhere I go every week??? Anyway, they did me a world of good, so I might pay them another visit tomorrow.
I have also started spinning the wool that I dyed last week. I am successfully spinning quite thin, and I am planning to make two ply socks. I am thinking the colours in this would look beautiful as Sunshine Socks.
(The colour is somewhere between these two photos)
And in something not directly related to crafting, we now have proper Internet at home I can watch YouTube videos! The photos on peoples' blogs come up! I don't load up a page on Ravellery and go make a cup of tea! I feel like I have truly joined the 21st century.
