I really was busy over the holidays…

in Custom Knits - Tang, Knit and Tonic - Something Red, Wendy Bernard

I was so busy, in fact, that I was unable to really post anything until now. My "To Do" list has been growing every day! Well, let's talk about the things that I have completed, not those things that still need to be done.

Here you can see that I've finished a top-down short-row sleeve on Tang. Because of the nature of Stockinette Stitch, the shoulder area was rolling onto the sleeve "seam" a bit. As you can see in the picture, there is a dark spot there because I wet it (and took a pic) and let it dry like that. The rolling has stopped, magically!

I tried it on, and I'm really happy with the fit. Of course, I need to do sleeve #2 and the neck, but this is feeling like a pretty quick knit. I do recommend trying this technique for those of you who might be bored with raglan sleeves or want to try something different. It's not a difficult thing to do as long as you follow the directions.

I've also finished Something Black, and I had taken modeled pics. BFF and I had a photo shoot the other day, and I had a good one I wanted to use. When I went to upload the pics to my computer, my memory card (for the digital SLR) was corrupted. I'm a little perturbed by this, but I think memory cards are cheap and I can do another photo shoot this weekend. You'll just need to wait…can you stand it?!

Looking forward to seeing Something Black. Memory cards are extremely cheap now – I think I just got 16GB for $30 on Amazon.

I have both of these patterns on my to do list. Yours look great! Happy New Year!
