2 Days After Thanksgiving


Hey there,
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!... or if you don't celebrate, a great last Thursday! Lucky me got to enjoy 2 Turkey Day events: Thursday with my family, and Friday with Dennis' family. Good times, and SOOOOO MUCH FOOOOOOOD! It's safe to say I'm stuffed 'til New Years. But I did get to see my two little nieces, Summer who's just starting to walk, and Julianna who is starting to talk! She actually called us Uncle Dennis and Aunt Kristin for the first time!!! Yaaay! So cute!)

All finished blocking the Rosamund Cardigan, but still have to figure out the button sitch... I love the color and how the cables turned out, but to be honest, I'm still not liking the short sleeves. May just gift it to my mom for Christmas since she fell in love with it when I showed it to her.

(Vernal Equinox Shawl has officially become a sofa spread!)



With the leftover wool, I knit Dennis Habitat by Jared Flood. It turned out so cool, that I may just snag it! ;-) It was really fun and quick to knit, and definitely want to whip up another.. maybe for my office Secret Santa!

My yarn also came in the mail yesterday! Going to spend the day browsing Ravelry for projects to knit!... whilst continuing to plow my way through Little Cables & Big Ones Too Pullover.... Finally! It's been too long.



Also in the midst of listening to the Holiday Episode of Here's to Ewe... freakin' hilarious! I will never trust anything with thumbs again. ;-)

  1. I'm not big on cap sleeves either, but the cardigan is lovely.

  2. Thanks! It feels better when I wear a long-sleeve T-shirt underneath, like in the magazine. I could probably rock it, but I think my mom will appreciate it more.

  3. Question for you….re: k1f&b increases (for the raglan sleeves): on the next row after the increases (a knit row, WS) are the increases supposed to be knitted too? Or purled?

    Thanks!

  4. Hi Melissa,

    The raglan increases are knit on the RS Rows. It may sound weird, but this actually gives it a nice texture. Hope this helps! :-)
