Your sleeves are done! I’m a bit sleepy, so this isn’t going to be much of a blog post, but I just bound off the sleeves after a little marathon of knitting this evening, and took some (very bad) pictures just to show you:
Ren (one of our two orange tabby brothers (the other being Stimpy, obviously!)) decided he needed to be in on the action in the first picture. Silly boy. I took a second photo, sans cat, because the crooked angle in the first one almost made the sleeve appear to be different lengths, which they aren’t:
The color in these is terrible (things always look awful when I try to take pictures on the coffee table, but I’m too sleepy right now to bother dragging them upstairs to take a picture against the white sweater trunk). And yeah, I know that this color has absolutely nothing to do with the current Project Spectrum color triad. But, lucky for you, I’ve got another picture that fits the bill for that:
Ain’t that pretty? That’s a picture my husband took of the giant icicles (you can’t tell very well in the pictures, but those icicles are at least 3 or 4 feet long and very very thick) that have been growing off our roof during the very cold weather we’ve been having. I love the look of the clear ice with the white snow, and especially that lovely blue sky…I work in a windowless office, so I don’t get to see that very often!
Anyway, I’m hoping to get the sweater pieces washed (I like to give my knits a bath once I’m finished because they pick up a lot of cat hair, dust, and goodness knows what else whilst being carried along with me as I work on them) and blocked in the next couple of days, so that I can seam it up and mail it off to mom by the end of the week. Here’s hoping my second pair of set-in sleeves goes as smoothly as my first pair did!
