More Knitting in the Dark
So I don't know if your kids do this. I don't even know if you have kids. I don't even know who you are so if you'd like to drop a comment every now and then I wouldn't mind too much.
By the way, what's the protocol on that? Do I reply with a comment of my own? reply in the next post?
As I was saying, I don't know about you, but it is TORTURE getting my kid to sleep. We've finally got a system that involves me sitting and knitting in the dark for 2 hours, which is a decided improvement over my kneeling hunched over her bed as she wrapped her entire body around my head.
So more knitting in the dark. Nothing like a cardigan for dark knitting. I did have a few things to fix when i made it back into the light, but, is it just me or does everyone love dropping back stitches, fixing things, and picking up those stitches again? I love doing it.
I've also been playing with color correction and camera settings, for, while i simply live for my Nikon D70, it does tend to over-saturate the reds a bit. Today's photo is a far more accurate representation of the actual colors in the yarn, which, incidentally, is Full Belly Farm organic wool à la Mosaic Moon. The colorway is a kind of subtle, light rainbow.
I'm doing my best to avoid pooling by knitting one row, turning, purling one row, turning, knitting one row, knitting one row backwards. Lather, rinse, repeat. So far, I think it's ok. I fear what happens at the armhole split. Which is why i'm leaning towards a yoke. But then again, raglan might be fine. Remind me why I'm knitting this bottom up? oh yeah, so i could cast it on in the dark.
I've been all project spectrumy, too, but those photos will have to wait for another day. I need to work on those reds.
