We're home after a lovely few days with Marc's family, celebrating August birthdays and having a good time with his sisters, parents, nephew. Kids got to bed not too long after we returned and now I'm in Saturday-night-nerd-heaven: working on knitting projects while viewing sci-fi reruns.
Here is progress on Eve's sweater, using the yarn I dyed not too long ago:
The pattern is Helena, by Alison Green Will.
And I am finally stepping into the Elliebelly Knit-Along, with this cast-on of the Paintbrush colorway. Fun! This merino is so springy and soft, with delicious subtle shadings of navy, aqua, aspen, plum and mulberry. I have had to go up two needle sizes (still trying to sort that out... I don't think I knit that tightly) and this size fits my wrist, which seems a good start. I'm hoping these become the Commuter Mitts by Stephanie Sun. This yarn is so pretty, I want to wear it on the way to the office.
Time for bed, Firefly is over.
Made it past the initial ribbing; now on to building a foundation for the cable.
