Howdy, peeps! It was springtime in Colorado today, sunshine-y and warm and lovely. But by the time you read this it will be cold and snowing, as Wednesday's high temperature is supposed to be just less than half of Tuesday's. Ah well, I guess that's what makes it Spring, right?
Speaking of Spring, I've been trying in vain to get Narragansett moving along fast enough so that I'll actually be able to wear it this year. So far, it's not looking that good...
I've just finished the raglan increases (this is a top down pattern), and am about to separate for the sleeves. Maybe another inch or so, I think. I'm also about 3/4 of the way through the first skein of yarn, so I think we'll be good on that front.
The modified eyelets aren't really that eyelet-y, but I don't think I mind too much. I do love the cable that runs along the raglan, though.
That's it on the knitting front this week. Hopefully, things will look much more exciting by next week. And, I'm tentatively planning on tinking the stupid mittens this week too, and trying once again to get some forward progress rolling. No promises, though! There's a new pair of socks calling my name, and the promise of no tinking baggage and new yarn is a pretty powerful draw. You'll just have to check back next week to see which way things went.
Finally, in case you missed the post on Monday, I'm giving away a skein of Madeline Tosh Merino Light this week, and you have until Saturday morning to enter. Go check it out! And then go visit all the other WIPW folks and see what they're up to this week. Knowing them, it's probably something exciting.
