It has reached the point where I can’t count on having high-quality daylight when I get home in the evenings, so this photo doesn’t do a great job of showing off the colors in this photo, but who cares – it’s done! This sweater was simple and fun to make, and I’m happy with the sweater if not with the photo. The right sleeve is red, not orange as it appears, and the left sleeve is purple, not blue. Yay for unintentional camera tricks. When I was a kid, I liked a Willy Wonka candy called Rinky Dinks, which came in red, purple, and green, and I have been calling this my Rinky Dinks sweater because it reminds me of those colors.
I am also working on piecing and finishing the adult-sized brown sweater that I worked on all summer. I hope to be able to show that one off next Wednesday.
For fun, I’m reading Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train (and by “fun” I mean “trying to finish it quickly so I can start Geraldine Brooks’ The Secret Chord or H.S. Cross’ Wilberforce — or anything, really, with the possible exception of Paradise Lost”).
