Happy Easter. It’s a drizzly dreary day here weather wise but I’ve spent the afternoon sewing and watching movies. The snow and ice we got a few days ago is long gone. Now we just need a bit of sunshine to brighten things up – literally.
But gray and rainy days are good for knitting and sewing. I’ve got nearly a dozen or more Barn Dane blocks about half done and my swatch for my sweater has dried.
I did decide that the bobbles don’t show up as well in this blend yarn – they are sort of flat – so am going to switch to a different pattern for this yarn and use the Lente pattern with some fatter rounder yarn that keeps the bobbles plumped and round.
I’ve decided to make a sweater similar to Hedwig. I think it will look nice in this yarn with the simple lace design in the pattern.
I also finished the back of my sleeveless top to go under my striped sweater last night so I can start on the color-blocked front. Time to plug in another movie and cast on.
