I didn't have much time to knit yesterday, so Green Apple's back is only half finished:
Single cable up the back, split at the neck, probably at the same height as the front V. And speaking of that front V....guess who's going to rip & re-do? The neck is too high for my liking, so I'm going to rip back and start the armhole bind-off about 1 1/2" higher on the cable, paving the way for me to split the cable earlier & thus get a lower neckline. (Honest - that makes sense! ::grin::)
But first I'll do it on the back, just to make sure my calculations are correct. ;) Regardless, I should be finished either today or tomorrow. :)
That's good too, because not only do I have to write up a pattern & get a couple of people to testing, I also want to get started on some crocheting. After seeing the Larger Than Life Bag:
on several different blogs (check out Vera's!) I've decided I simply-must-make-one-or-die.
You all know how I get. ::wink::
And for another project, this one continues to stick in my head:
It's the "Weekend Jacket" in the current issue of IK Crochet designed by Annette Petavy who, believe it or not, actually reads my blog. (Will wonders never cease. I always get a little thrill when well-known people check in here....it's the starstruck little girl in me I guess! ::Grin:::) At least I know the designer is just an email away....not that I'll have any problems at all, I'm sure! ::wink::
Anyway, the more I look at that jacket, the more I'm liking it. It's totally different than the things I usually make AND I think I'll be able to use bits & bobs of stash too. (I've more or less designated this as the "Summer of Stash" here at Casa de Bron. The more I can knit & crochet without buying new, the better!)
Be sure & read the article about Annette in the magazine too - it's very well done!
Yes - I'll still be knitting on the cardi from Vogue - although I won't be knitting quite as fast as a certain someone who should be finished in another day or two! LOL (Scroll down for her version.)
And sometime this week I'm actually going to cast on the 541 stitches needed for this shawl. If I can find (or make) a needle long enough!
