About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.

We have sleeveage!  Ok, the start of sleeveage, anyway.

I’ve decreased from 72 to 58 stitches on the first sleeve, and I need to get to 30 before I start the ribbing.  I finished up the hem at the bottom a couple of days ago, and I’m very happy with how it came out.  I think it will lay better after blocking, too.

Since the sweater has gotten a bit unwieldy for taking to rehearsal, I decided to start the Boteh scarf as a more portable option.

It’s fantastic yarn to work with, and I love the way the colors are working – I think it’s going to be awesome when it’s done.  I just need to look at the yardage on the original pattern and see if I can lengthen it at all.  I like my scarves long.  🙂
