We have progress! Not as much as I'd hoped. I was planning on finishing Miss Katrine here, so I could wear her to work today, but the foot-long collar is taking forevvverrrrr. And sew in the zipper, which I hate doing, especially since I don't have a sewing machine. She's also turning out a bit w i d e r than I had thought. Maybe I knit more loosely than I thought I did. Or I stretch the pieces too much when I block them. At any rate, I may go a size down for my next sweater.
And here we have the reason my ambitions to finish two oh-so-snuggly sweaters in which to swaddle my pasty bod were dashed! Neahkahnie Mountain. A day hike with the girls and the Texan. A picnic at the summit with my favorite potato chips. This is January in Oregon?
