Presenting: Enterlac-Noro- Malabrigo sweater!
So I'm done with a very enjoyable knit - the home-designed enterlac with Malabrigo (colour Emerald) and Noro Kureyon (colour nr 183). I still have three skins of Kureyon left, so Im still debating a neck-line, and yes, it is still unpressed and unwashed. I noticed it is a bit slanted on the pict. but that is more me being exited throwing it on (and a cold husband taking pictures before he fell asleep on the sofa). Knitted on 4.5mm (and on sleeves ending up with 3.5 mm at the cuff). Circular knitted of course. So, I thought it would be rather useful without a high neck/collar, but now (contemplating the picture) I see a neckline would probably make it feel more even... Dear H. 24 hours yarnshopping in NY I just say WOW! - I would go crazy in a city like that - but it sounds wonderful! Do you not end up after a good dinner with a lot of wine (and somewhat lost judgement) buying your Amex to the limit? Waking up with a headacke and 6 bags of yarn? I would - I do it sober! Unfortunately - I have little influence on trips booked at work, so I do not see that easily happen, but, the year is not over yet. This sweater brings me just one month (and 1 day) behind on my Sweater a Month KAL! But Im hanging in there, and I have still not given up to finish some UFO's. Anyhow, Im extatic by this sweater. I will definitely wear it during this coldspell! At least the cold perserves the flowers to a long blooming! Today we are off work on national Holiday. It is really political holiday, but a great recovery from Valpurgis (Valborgs) night yesterday! The students worst party time - but for me now, very quiet and relaxed - my memories of Uppsala champange-galopp are still vivid in memory. This is the time of year filled with hope of a long nice summer. The light is back (4.45 am- 8.45 pm) and it is getting ligher by the day - and the sailing boat is (unmasted) but in the sea!
