I knit a gorgeous sweater -to gauge! -- and the armholes/sleeves are too wide and baggy. It won't be hard fix, but I was so bummed, I stuffed it into its project bag and I've refused to look at it.
But, at last, I am happy with a project. I pulled out a favorite sock pattern, and made myself another pair of socks out of some lovely hand-dyed yarn. And they are perfect!
It's the Waving Lace pattern by Evelyn Clark, found in Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave Knits. The yarn is Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye from Webs. The yarn is 60% merino, 20% silk, and 20% "other."
Meanwhile, it's been snowing. And snowing. We got about 14 inches on Jan 27-28, another 10+ inches on Feb. 3, and we're due today and tomorrow for another 18-20 inches. We've had 3 snow days and 2 delays in that last 2 weeks. I will regret those lovely snow days come June.
