Knitting is Pretty.
Hasn't been much knitting in my life these days, I've been scrambling with the raffles for the Professor (which went very well, by the way, thanks to you all for your kind thoughts) and the fundraiser for my daughter's preschool. And I'm looking for an apartment which is a total nightmare in this city.
I can't tell you how many "two bedroom" apartments I've seen that seem to be missing living rooms. And are over our budget anyway, even without the living room. Ugh.
But I did spend an afternoon with the talented photographer Sabrina Usher who took some photos of some new top secret projects for me, as well as shots like the one above - step by step technique shots for patterns. I think they make the whole knitting process look so lovely.
In other knitting news, the EZ hybrid is kicking my... well, I'm having issues. I have these weird, wobbly, pregnant hands and my tension changes like every 14 seconds, it seems. I have started the first sleeve no less than 4 times and every time need to rip it back and start over. I think it's working now, and i just need to measure my gauge and change needles every few rows to keep on target.
Our anniversary has come and gone so maybe this sweater will be a gift for the holidays instead. If all goes well.
