so, here she’s modeling a stealth knit i made this month, or actually started just a few days before going to barbados. i used up some stash yarn – about 9 balls of some merino bought two years ago, hooray. it’s based on this buttony sweater pattern, but i added waist shaping and tightened it up a bunch. oh and i had fun with the buttons, of course.
there was a lot of guesswork with this pattern, especially as there was no stated gauge, and this was my first top-down knit. never realized how much i needed gauge until it wasn’t there! anyhow, i really like the way it turned out.
other than that, i’m finally peeling, walked around in some real fluffy snow, and have been eating up a storm – there’s a ton of great organic and local-produce-emphasized restaurants around here. also, last night, i made these delicious baked doughnuts. we inhaled them so no pictures are available. all in all, just having a good relaxing break from life and instead indulging in some sisterly fun.
my sisters just went off for their afternoon run, so i’m going to catch up on some news and start quilting up that denyse schmidt pillow i started a few days ago. nice.
hope your weekend goes great ~ ~
