Last week I promised you a photo that shows off less San Francisco blue sky and more tan tank sweater, so here you go. This sweater is made from the same pattern as the one I made last spring – it was a brilliant blue and was a popular feature on Yarn Along for a while. If you scroll back to my Yarn Along posts from March and April 2014, you will see it. I love the pattern, but this sweater is made from a different yarn, so it has a different feel to it. It scrunches instead of hanging straight. At any given moment it looks as if someone has just grabbed fistfuls of it and roughed them up a little. I have never blocked a sweater in 20 years of knitting, but this project might be the one that breaks my streak.
I still have three stories to go in Redeployment, but I am also reading Watership Down with a third grader I’m tutoring. It’s lots of fun. Life is full of surprises, but none is quite as knock-me-over-with-a-feather surprising as the fact that I am enjoying a book about bunny rabbits (except maybe the fact that I’m admitting it on the internet).
It’s been a long week so far, and it’s only Wednesday morning. Here’s to calmer waters ahead.
Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny on her wonderful blog, Small Things.
