It was a long-overdue, really great, and very productive weekend! I'm not very good at holding back and parceling out the goods, but I thought I'd try and only post about one thing today; the danger is that I begin to think of things left for later as "old news" and/or something else comes along. I accomplished a lot, though, and I could be "Weekending" almost all week!
I'm not even going to start at the beginning. Here's the scene at my kitchen table on Sunday morning:
One of my errand stops on Saturday was at Joann's to find buttons for Junah's sweater, and I took some time on yesterday to sew them on! That results in an FO!
- Project: Junebean, Devan by Holli Yeoh
- Size 2T
- Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn in "Electric Revolution" self-striping colorway
- Make.Do Be Fingering/Sock in "Bookworm" colorway
- Needle: US 2 & 3 - slightly larger than specified in the pattern
- Start to Finish: March 22 - May 3, 2015
At first I thought that stripey intarsia block at the neck in back would be too fiddly, but I'm not sure how I reasoned that THREE intarsia blocks across the bottom would be any easier? Because they were solid and not stripes?? Heh. As it turns out, I did both.
There was some operator error in the soaking for blocking process and a bit of color bled to the back -- you can see it here. It might come out or fade a bit with another washing, I haven't done that yet. It makes me a little sad, but then I look at the blocks, the stripes, turn it over and look at the front, the buttons, all those MATCHING STRIPES -- I LOVE IT!
Stripey goodness. Julia's self-striping wizardry is out of this world amazing.
Oopsie! There's a sneak peek at something else I did over the weekend.
