So far, so good. My Alanis is coming together as planned. The way my luck has been lately, I have a feeling I might have jinxed this project with the mere thought of smooth sailing. I'm trying to stay positive.
This project is worked from the bottom up. I completed the front and back hems separately and joined the two pieces into one. Now I'm knitting around and around. There's a certain comfort in that.
I'm fast approaching the pocket and that means I have to make a decision about the pocket lining.
All I need is a few yards. Yesterday I posted some color options on Instagram, and today I've added another one to the mix. I could make the lining the same color as the sweater, but there's no fun in that. I've received some feedback - feel free to weigh in.
A few schedule updates. Knitting Weekend at Slater Mill is coming up January 19 - 21. It looks like there's still some class space available. Check it out if you're in the area.
On February 3 I'll be at Romney Ridge Yarns & Wool in Ipswich for a class and a trunk show. See link for details.
Finally, I've added the February Farm Fiber Day (try to say that fast) to the right sidebar. There's also a Fiber Day this month. This event is so much fun, and nothing beats one-stop shopping for food and fiber. It's a great way to brighten your winter days.
