Some knitting going on
I started the sweater that I have wanted to make for a long time. It is from Poetry in Stitches and is by Solveig Hisdal. I don't know what I am thinking by starting this sweater. If I didn't love it and didn't want to wear it I could never get through it. I hate doing color work of any kind.
At the same time, I am working on Elizabeth Zimmermens Garter Stitch blanket. Although most versions I have seen of it really don't appeal to me because I think they are ugly, I loved Brooklyn Tweeds version and shamelessly copied his exactly. I need it for winter. It is a boring knit but I will be glad I did it come winter.
Last but not least, I was excited because we finally ate in our dining room the other night with neighbors that I invited over for Paella. They brought the sangria and the board game Redneck for us to play after dinner.
