FO Seafoam

Seafoam...This is so interesting. The new blog editing is messing with me. But, regardless - the little lace mohair vest with a lot of glass beads is nice to wear. A bit see-through though, which you must plan for. For instance it is hard to spot that it is long - since I have black pants underneath. anyhow, it feels a bit "dressy" and elegant. You would think this was easy work to do - no - the pattern from head which is based on a lace pattern called "birch" is relatively simple and straigh forward, but the beads and the gauge was really problematic. Such a thin thread on big needles... Anyhow - this is my 12th sweater for the year - so it is at least concluding my basic goal of 12 sweaters a year. I am of course knitting on, but allowing me to knit a pair of socks in-between. Have a great day!

Ok... Finally! FO's Murkey Falls

As you can see - this is take "way back". Now we are drenched with snow. So why is there no weekly updates from here? Have I stopped knitting? No way.... I just had some computer problems. Not only did I change my computer - with that I lost my photo editing program. This definitely causes problems. Since the pictures are big and will take forever to download to your computer.
Sigh. So - you have to tolerate somewhat uncropped pictures, before I locate the disk where the program is stored (it is SOMEWHERE) in the big renovation mess. Be patient. Things will always get better.
Meanwhile, knit on - be happy and rejoice!
