And then there were two




Sleeves, that is. It's taken a while, but there's definate progress here! The first sleeve took me weeks to complete, then I had a break from this project and made the Papillon sweater, and over the past couple of weeks I made a determined effort to get the never ending lace jacket finished. As you can see, I'm not far off; in fact, I fully intend to be able to label this a finished object in the not too distant future. All that remains to be done is to pick up stitches for the hood/collar - not a huge amount of yarn left, but as it's laceweight, a little goes a long way. I'm just going to keep knitting in the madeira lace border pattern until it's all used. I'll either get a hood (doubtful) or a fairly deep lace collar (more likely) and whichever it is, I'll be very happy to be able to wear it at last! Other projects - the baby sweater for charity was finished on time, but I passed it on to the organiser then realised I'd forgotten to photograph it. Still working on my scarf in Schaeffer Anne; another project that I really want to finish over Christmas. Hopefully I'll have a whole batch of FO's to show off before the end of the year.

Sorry about deleted post, but my typing is abominable. Let's try again:

Wow! That is a gorgeous garment!
