This is what twenty percent of a sweater looks like:
I kind of wish I had one of those dress forms made out of an old t-shirt and duct tape like Julie over at Knitting at Large. It would be my precise measurements and I could see how this puppy is fitting as I go along instead of the "big reveal" at the end. I know that I saw a class online showing how to do them, but why pay the money when you can find the directions online? Yeah, I likely will not take the time to do this, but it's cool. Especially the one dress form model that used "fireworks" printed duct tape!
Since I apparently have the attention span on a gnat, I started two new projects recently. One is a lace scarf for myself. It's not a cold weather scarf per se, as it is laceweight yarn (practically thread) more of a pretty autumn accessory. No time limit on this one. My knitting group is also having a beach swap, so I'm working on a cotton beachbag. And I still have a sock on the needles, I haven't forgotten about my first (to-be-completed) sock! However, I am very much wishing I'd done a gauge swatch, 'cause the sock is knitted loosely and no longer going to fit me. So now they will be a gift for....my dad!
What's on your needles these days?
