Thanks for all the well wishes, everyone. I feel even worse today so I’m off to the doctors in the hopes that they’ll give me antibiotics.
The upside of being ill so much in the last month is that it’s given me lots of time to work on Tangled Yoke. Come on, I can’t be the only one who has thought at one time or another, “if I break my leg/get appendicitis/have a horrible flesh eating virus, think how much extra knitting time I’d get”.
Last night I cast off the neckband – wooHOO! Now I just have to graft the underarms, knit the button bands, and block her and she’s finished. This was one of those projects that you couldn’t really tell, as you were knitting it, whether it would fit well. I knew the sleeves were ok, I tried those on as I finished them. But the body? It wasn’t until I’d cast off last night and tried it on that I knew……. it fits perfectly! And it looks fabulous. Really flattering, really cute. I can’t wait to have it completely finished. I expect to have a line of drooling people gathered around me everywhere I go.
If you haven’t knitted this pattern yet, what are you waiting for?? Mine is knitted in Amelia, our alpaca/merino dk (sports) weight yarn. I got perfect gauge with it. And whatdyaknow, we have a limited supply back in stock, some of which will be in this week’s shop update! If you fancy a periwinkle blue/citrusy lime/vivid peacock Tangled Yoke, make sure you come and grab some Amelia! Mine (40″ bust) has taken a smidge over 500g.
