I didn’t do much knitting this week, and my tan tank sweater is still in more or less the same shape it was in last week. My goal in this photo is to show you the sweater’s texture, which I describe as something between pleasantly-and-trendily-scrunchy and full-of-uneven-stitches-totally-unacceptable-from-a-twenty-year-veteran-knitter. Honestly, I have no idea how this sweater will look when it comes off needles. I’ve been telling myself that the scrunchiness will work itself out when the sweater is worn (and is therefore being pulled down by gravity) and the rows of stitches will straighten themselves out, but the yarn is SO lightweight that this may not happen. I am considering sewing some beads to the bottom of the sweater in hopes of heightening this effect. We’ll see.
I’m reading all kinds of things, as usual, but the book I’m enjoying most right now is A Clash of Kings. Just like Game of Thrones, it took about 200 pages to get off the ground and has finally gotten good.
Happy Wednesday to all! As usual, Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.
