A Little Something
It’s no wonder I don’t get much done around here! I was just browsing the Ravelry forums when I came across an invitation to test a pattern for a really cute summer sweater… because having two other sweaters in progress is not enough for me??
Then again, maybe I just need deadlines. I have until June 11 to finish this.
I’m using naturallycaron.com’s Country in “silver service.” It’s an acrylic/wool blend. Make that microdenier acrylic (and merino wool), whatever that means. So far the softness and sheen is really nice and it seems to have a nice drape. I really have no idea how that will work with the blocking of the lace, but it seemed to work ok with the swatch… Others were a bit more observant than me and noticed that their lace was diagonally off by like one stitch. So mine is ever so slightly different than the original, but I find that I like it just fine!
This weekend I did get a chance to work on my Camden a tiny bit. It’s coming along. I get really excited starting things, and then getting to things like the sleeves are the neck line, but I tend to loose steam in the bust area!
