Now Then

Where was I?

Oh yeah, I was knitting a sweater. More precisely I was re-knitting the sleeves of the Notre Dame de Grace.

I am pleased and proud to announce that last night at knit night I got the sleeves back to the point I was when I realized I was knitting the wrong size. They're about 16 inches long now, and I want to double-check the measurements of my actual arms to make sure they won't turn out too long.

In the meantime, some WIP pics:

I was really fighting my camera the day I took those last two photos. Get the stitch detail right and I washed out the color. Come a little closer on the color, l lost the detail.

Maybe it'll look better if you squint?

Have I rhapsodized about this yarn enough? It's scrummy. Everybody wants to stroke it and pet it and take it home. Well, they can't, 'cause it's mine-mine-mine-all-mine!

Oh dear, my greedy is showing again...

It looks beautiful, Anree! That color is gorgeous too. Will you let me pet your yarn if I promise not to take it? :shifty:

Yey! for sleeves being the right size! :)

I think the first picture of the doubble moss stitch looks amazing. Great stitch definition in that one.

:kram:

Lovely Lovely Lovely! The double moss stitch is fabulous - does it eat that yummy yarn?

It does rather eat the yarn, but in a more reasonable way.
