The last few weeks have been full of snow, knitting, and life. I’ve been doing a lot of knitting, which I guess isn’t really news. I did finish part of the package I’m putting together for the Hot Cocoa Swap. I have named him Wilbur, and he’s awesome. I really think the wings make the pig ^_^
I have also been knitting away on the garter stitch jacket. I’m about 10 inches into the first sleeve and it fits really well! I had a bit of drama trying to figure out the sleeves at first; I didn’t realize they were knit flat, then seamed. Now that I get it, I feel really silly. Pictures soon, I promise.
After much discussion, I have decided to knit Retrofit for my fiancé. I showed him lots of pictures, and we discussed colours for a long enough time that I think he’s sure about things. We’re going with Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Jade for the body, and Squirrel Heather for the arms. Check out my doctored photo 🙂
