I've been putting off the photography on this project for at least a month. Definitely a project that I never felt like I'd finished without the photos.
Yeah, the Swiss Cheese Scarf, which I started *mumble*mumble* in August 2007. Woof. This project isn't hard, but it does tend to get a little dull. This is mostly garter stitch with bind offs and cast ons to make the holes. The effect is really cool, but just feels unending. At least for me.
This one is made with a single skein of Malabrigo lace weight. I had originally intended to use the yarn for Kiri, but I never got very far with that idea. I'm probably going to give this to my mom (who I don't think is reading this) for the holidays. It's nice to have something done.
It's not the only thing I managed to have photographed this morning, but I figure to spread out the photo love!
With something that took me as long as this to get photographed and logged on the blog, it is a good thing I added some info to Ravelry. Gosh, otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell you anything even about the yarn. For example, this was knit on size 3 needles. I didn't remember that at all!
I am currently working on the Vortex Street Pullover. I'm just using stash woolease, but I'm already on the second sleeve. I'm going to leave it at home while I travel, but I'm hoping that with a good amount of time over my vacation I'll manage to get through the bulk of the pattern (what am I saying, that is the bulk of the pattern!). I'm trying to focus on this pretty much exclusively and plow through the finishing at the end. I think what happens when a sweater needs finishing (especially picking up stitches and non-mattress stitch sewing) is that it gets put aside for the more exciting task of knitting something else. Anything else.
And back to the land of baking. Wanna see the silliest looking Superman cake? I'm sure I have done (or could do sillier) a weirder decorating job, but it would have taken a fair amount of effort. I think the next time I make this cake I will use a picture and see if I can make a negative colored cake. That would be really cool!
