Another Project on the Blocking Board


Note the attractive collection of winter snow/rain footwear stowed under the bench!

This is Ellery's Bolero jacket. It's inside out on the blocking board to smooth out a bit prior to seaming it. I'm not sure that the curves on the front will look even when the garment is finished, but I won't know for sure until it's seamed and Ellery can try it on. I may need to pull off the ribbing on the front edges and collar and try again.

I've cast on the vegan fox and it is really fun to knit on 10mm needles. (I've only got half of the tail finished...so pictures later)

My vest made from the stray Classic Elite Mackenzie yarn is evolving into another freeform project. That is, there are enough gauge, needle and stitch variations to render the pattern into a mere "serving suggestion". Still, I remain hopeful that I'll have a wearable garment. The yarn is knitting up fairly coarsely and I can't imagine Jenna coaxing this into her beautiful Rogue sweater, but she swears that she did and that the results were lovely.

Not much else to report except that the tooth fairy visited each of the girls in the space of less than a week. Hubby and I should budget for these emergencies!
