Sorry no WIP's this week, too busy printing postage and recovering, and my arms are sore from shots for work!! (I wished I didn't have any WIP's ;)
I present to you.........the Everyday Carptigan
Named Carptigan by our very own Turtlegirl! Why...well this past weekend I took it to SAFF for buttonage sewing. The night before I left...hubby requested his fish be fried....I did NOT burn it, but suffice it to say, said fish fumes gathered on it. (see...fish...carp...need I say more?)They (the fumes) did not gather on anything else in the house (your needle cases are safe!!) but just this...of course. Maybe it was the semi drying state of the wool...who knows.
Much was said by certain peeps about it being allowed near or in the room or vehicles...but they were nice and let the Carptigan come along. I didn't get to wear it and another kind soul sniffed it and didn't smell the obvious smells I did...heh...so much for nose surgery huh, now it invents smells!

New techniques learned. Sleeveages in the round. Seaming, I love my Knitter's Companion for all seaming techniques all the time! (thanks Cpurl!). My first adult button band...oh rant on that...I could only get 7 out of 8...wth! And my first collar pick up.
I know you are all going to ask...no model picture..well there may never be! 10 pictures and they all stunk....badly. It barely buttons (yes I made the right size due to measurements) and even though I coerced 3 more inches, shorter than I like. Dropped sleeves or whatever you call them..not flattering to me. So unless I shrink or lose some frontage, it'll sit in the closet, looking pretty!
Did I also say this is my first adult sweater? Well, sometimes your first one doesn't always work out. So I'm not too upset (yeah now I can order another green yarn for another project). I've picked myself up and dusted off...hehe..Onward to the Tilted Duster, I know that won't be too short LOL!! Mucho thanks to Aimee for allowing me to try hers on for sizing! Woot!
Oh and despite pics you may have seen of me lately...um..no wheel yet (quite a while from that) and remember, I was busy spinning...hands were busy...um..couldn't do other things LOL!!! Yes I will post...part tomorrow and part Friday for YPF!
PS only 1 needle case left!! Yay! um..yikes! More sewing to be done!
