my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Saturday, April 28, 2007


This yarn has begun the journey to becoming a sweater. I cast on for Serrano last week when I needed straight stockinette. Six hanks were wound into balls and 261 stitches to a row and I'm not quite to the turn for the hem. The yarn seems much more yellow when I'm knitting it up, but it's definitely orange. What looks red is really more of a burnt orange so deep it's nearly brown. I've been trying to post this picture for days. Finally, I'm online at home and here you go. Now I wish I had more pictures to post.

That's so pretty! (It's yarn, it's bound to be...)

Wow. That's stunning. How's the feel of the yarn? Soft? That's my new measure -- not just color but texture. It's fun learning the different textures of yarn.

I can't wait to see the FO. Enjoy knitting it.

OMG, I'm on my third beer (on sunday), and my verification word is kquxamha. I'm bound to screw it up (I'm a light-weight; would never make a good alcoholic).
