Really? It’s Friday already? And the second half of March? How’d that happen??
Oh, yeah. It’s because I’ve been deeply submerged in a secret project. It’s big; I’ve been having fun; you’re gonna love it… but it ain’t ready yet.
Coming up for air only occasionally means progress on my Swirl has been a little slow. But I have managed to get the full stitch count for the sleeves on the needles:
You can see that the sleeves begin/end with a bit of reverse stockinette, to create rolled cuffs. You can also see I still have a ways to go… four more welts before binding off at the back neck, then neck and sleeve shaping, then seaming and blocking.
I had hoped to have this Swirl finished before traveling to the DFW Fiber Fest at the end of this month. (So looking forward to this! It promises to be a blast.) But really? It may not happen.
In other news, the workshop schedule for this year’s Black Sheep Gathering is now available online. Ooh, it’s a good thing that Beginning Rigid Heddle Loom Weaving conflicts with my Cast-on Cornucopia and Socktastic Stitch Patterns classes, or I’d be tempted to pick up another hobby. I really don’t need that right now!
