knitting, project spectrum, rogue

look, mom!

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:

Finished Rogue Sleeves!

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:

Finished Rogue Sleeves, sans cat

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:

Huge icicles!

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!
