Wednesday, we get the keys to the new house. Finally! We'll start moving some things over there this weekend with Monday and Tuesday next week as the real move in dates. A short four days later, my current residence will become Rachel's Place.
I made no progress on my to-do lists this weekend. None. I did however make progress on the thick and thin cardigan. It awaits only sleeves and trim. I'll start the sleeves today, but I'll have to knit them one at a time because they're knit from the top down and I only own one US 15 circular needle. This has been a super fast knit until I got to the dark green trim where the stitches exploded from 60 to 180 and the 2 X 2 pattern slowed me down a bit. I did cut short on the trim thinking the hem would fall in an unflattering spot on my big behind. No sense drawing attention to such a place.
I did not find a shade of Cascade 220 that I liked for the trim, so I substituted this part with Mission Falls merino worsted. It has a pretty sheen to it and I'm pleased with this change. It's a beautiful yarn and I kept wondering what I could make next with something as soft as this. I have several things to finish before I go forward with anything new, including the green sweater and the pi shawl. I'm a little flustered by the green sweater because the decreases in the upper arm make it just too tight. I was warned about this flaw in the pattern by knitters who've been there on Ravelry. Did I listen? Nah. If I would just sit still, rip out what's done and redo the sleeves, I'd be done with this.
Now that I have some dates settled, I think the knitting may be taking a back seat for awhile. Not for long though.
