Backing up a couple days...some scenes from the trail.
Our girl, Amelia. She's everywhere :-).
The finished sleeves. Six days of hard knitting. Well, not hard, but long hours. Even with a simple pattern, these sleeves just take a long time. They fit perfectly. I like the pattern going up over the shoulders. I love the color, perfect for a hard working farm sweater. The problem?
The yarn was just not spun the way it needed to be. I started the body and just hated it. Way too thick. The sleeves were borderline too heavy, but within acceptable range (for me). I tried two different skeins to start the body and after hours and hours of stewing on it...
20 volunteered to do the deed. He's always a good sport.
He's got my sled back upright and ready to hit the trail again. The race is not over!
Speaking of heavy sweaters! Blossom aka Baba
