New job has been started! And I made it through the first week without any mishaps. So I'm officially an employee of the State of Maryland.
And since I'm now working in an office I'm in need of clothes for work! Hmmmm, seems I've said this before. Probably. So I've started working on some sweaters. Natch, because winter is just around the corner. And because while searching through the stash for something for mittens I came across a forgotten stash of (are you sitting down?) Cottage Craft! In a color Lobster, and enough to knit a cardigan for moi!
So using my trusty size 8 circular I've cast on the body (142 stitches thank you very much) and have started knitting. I figure about 13 inches to the arms, then I'll cast on some dpns the sleeves, add a bit of fair isle and finish the top of the cardi knitting in the sleeves as I go. Then add a button band and I just may be sporting a new sweater next week. WHEEEEEEE!!
And in case you've already written up a score card, the fair isle parts will done with Cottage Craft 1ply and some lovely varigated mohair -- also found awaiting it's turn in the stash.
Do you think that by knitting a sweater only from the stash that that would entitle me to a yarn store trip for some more yarn? Seems fair. What do you think?
Here's a couple pics of Guji. These are pre-pounce....the pouncee being me coming up the steps.
He's growing so fast!
