In other, less urgent news... Lorna Suzanne is still sailing along at a pretty good clip. The body doesn't look much different than last week, but it's a couple of inches taller and officially on hold at the armpits, patiently waiting for its sleeves.
I had a bit of a scare on sleeve one, wherein I looked at the cuff I'd just finished and declared it to be ginormous. Seriously, this thing looked huge.
I contemplated frogging, but instead put it aside and frogged the Peerie mitten ribbing to get rid of the stupid mistake I made right at the beginning. Why are the really dumb mistakes always right at the beginning? Anyway. Ta da! It's a mitten lining once more.
I'll put some elbow grease into it this weekend and see if I can get it back on track.
Once I took a few deep breaths and picked up the Massive Sleeve Cuff again, I realized that this pattern calls for 3/4 length sleeves, and as it happens... my forearms are somewhat larger than my wrists, and the Massive Sleeve Cuff is really just kinda normal-sized. Awesome. I love it when that happens. Now I'm back to soldiering away on sleeve #1, and longing for 2 finished sleeves so I can join everything onto my circ and get back to some nice long rows.
Oh! And the Idlewood yarn arrived this week, much faster than expected.
So you see, I really need to get this sweater done so I can start on that one. Isn't it pretty? I kind of love it (It's Cascade 220 in the Cordovan colorway).
Finally, I've been rather hopelessly obsessed with the Pinterest world the last few days. It's such a time suck, and there's so much cool stuff. Anyone use this site? Thoughts?
ETA: Thanks, Nikki for the Pinterest invite! I'm all set now, but if anyone else would like one, let me know. I'm suddenly in a position to send them. Yay!
If I can tear myself away from that, I'll be making the rounds, checking out everyone else's WIPW entries. Join me?
