Hello again and an FO!

Hmmm - it has been a while since I updated. Believe it or not, the cough is still here. After weeks of tests and pharmaceuticals it is finally better. This year has been my worst ever for allergies that caused the bronchitis. I am loaded up with meds but can at least function now. Good thing I didn't have any jobs for the past few weeks - I was non-functioning as a teacher or player. But we are on track now and I am working again.


Wallis Cardigan is finished. But I think I am going to place the hooks differently so the front doesn't gap. The sweater is not at all tight but the gaps make it look like it is.

Stats: Yarn: Sublime by Sirdar 50% cotton/50% soy

Needles: Options #4 & 5

Start: 8/10/08

Finish: 9/28/08


Jim's new sweater is Cobblestone from IK Fall 2007. I abandoned the Sirdar pullover in favor of this one. Using this Sirdar Country DK green heathered yarn (but this is not Cobblestone - just wanted to show you the color):



Bought some Wool Ease for a mere $1.99 a skein at Joanns today. I plan to cast on for Imogen later this week ;-) The total cost for the yearn was $15.00! I think my husband will be pleased with my thriftiness. Check it out:




The color is Blue Mist. I love the flecks of color and think it will look nice in Imogen. What do you think?


We have the opening concert of RSO this week - great repertoire: Brahms Piano Concerto, Schubert Symphony in D Major and Hindemith Symphonic Metamorphosis.


Guess I better go practice. Have a good week, y'all.

The Wallis Cardigan is lovely! You did a great job.

I've made a couple sweaters with woolease and for the most part I like it but a couple of the colors have pilled horribly while others haven't pilled at all. If you have the time and the gumption, you might want to do a decent sized swatch and wash it a few times.

That anonymous person there is me. I am typing in the dark on the laptop and I'm not proficient at this keyboard yet, so I hit the enter key instead of the shift key. Oopsie.
