It's done, finished and is already been worn. I am talking about the sweater for Paperino, who this morning went to school wearing his new "poncho" - yes, everything that mommy knits is called "poncho". I did know let myself go to sleep last night until I finished, so I stayed up until 2 am. I truly hate sewing.
I have no photo of it because ALL the batteries of the digital camera were dead this morning - I'll take one tonight. It's raining, actually pouring, so horrible light anyway.
So, what's next? Well, after the wake up call of yesterday morning, I have no choice, I am swatching for the canotta tonight. The Spennakero is worsted weight (15sts/4"), while the pattern calls for bulky (10.5sts/4"), but it is such a simple pattern I should have no problem at all to figure it out, even if I am sending my sister these possible choices:
Katia Portofino Summer Top
Summer Net Shell
Bonne Marie's uCan2 Shell
that all have the right gauge.
I finished another afghan square as well, so all five of them are going in the mail today to SSK today.
And I got yarn! Well, that's not a surprise, you will say. But I got yarn from the UK in 4 days! Yes, my Jaeger is already here and I love it. Bookmark Cucumberpatch UK, good prices and fast and cheap shipping.
And I got the yarn that I bought from Caitlyn: 5 skeins in Peruvian Collection Highland Wool in pink and 12 skeins of Peruvian Collection Pure Alpaca, 6 celery and 6 ecru. This is stash, because I have no plans whatsoever for it.
And I bought this from her as well:
Reading and knitting tonight.
