I got to work on the Skinny Rib Kochoran sweater on some webcasts this week and I finished the back. The front has about three more inches before I start the neck shaping. Here's a half &ss cell phone picture:
I also started my first crochet sweater, which is also done in the round (The Unseamly Sweater from The Happy Hooker book.) I'm hoping I don't have a moebius here. I have to ask the lady at work who knows everything there is to know about crochet (but can't explain anything.) Hopefully she will at least be able to tell me if it's wrong or not. It is V-stitch even though it's difficult to see in the cell phone picture. I decided to use the "Terracotta Canyon" Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece I had in my stash for this project. It is a darker peach color than it looks like in the picture, more like "melon."
I also finished Wicked on Tuesday night and was unsure about the K2P2 ribbing I added to the bottom instead of the moss stitch that the pattern directs. I blocked it to make it less "bubbly" and I think it looks good now. I'm going to wear it tomorrow with a long sleeve brown jersey top underneath it, a knee length brown skirt and knee high brown boots, so I'll take pictures then!
Can't believe it's Thursday already - this week has flown. I'm hanging pretty bad today though (too much red wine last night with Jim) but dragged myself to work. My body is physically here but I feel like my mind is kinda absent.
Here's a quiz to round out today's post - as we haven't seen any flowers growing for a long time in Chicago, I thought I would do the Which Flower Are You? quiz. I'm a Rose - and I did get one yesterday from Jim too! We don't usually do flowers on holidays so it was a pleasant surprise.
You are a Rose:You are creative, sensual, passionate, and bold. You pour your heart into everything that you do. Alluring and gifted with strong sex appeal, you very easily draw people in with your animal magnetism.Symbolsim: The rose has always been a flower heavily loaded with symbolism. In general it symbolizes desire, passion, beauty, and enchantment.
