So I am not sure that Ginny will be having her yarn along this week as, well, she just had an adorable little baby!! Congratulations to Ginny and family! But, of course, that means I actually have something to share for a yarn along!
|Hmmm, I look pregnant. Great.|
I FINALLY finished my Tea Leaves. It took a long time, honestly, because I wasn't too keen on knitting on that big thing in summer. But I am so glad it is done now.
I started this sweater as a reward for loosing 70 pounds (which I really ought to post more about and will soon) and I am glad to say it was a grand reward indeed.
So I had run out of yarn just as I was finished the second sleeve and had to order more online. This is an issue because it may not be from the same dye lot. It wasn't. So I pulled out the garter stitch band on the one finished sleeve and used that to finish the other sleeve. Then I did both sleeve garter bands in the other, slightly darker yarn, along with the button bands. I then took the darker yarn and crocheted a simple little edge along the sleeves, neck and bottom.
So what are you guys crafting up? Tomorrow I am going to post more knitting stuff! You will get a peak at what I making everyone for Christmas!
