I’m sitting here in a cold house with my warmest sweater and fingerless gloves on. No heat for a few days while the house gets a new skin. Kind of a crazy thing to do in early winter! The cats are freaked out by all the noise but I think they’ll survive.
I’m making up lost time with my homework.
The bottom-up raglan is ready for class.
The puffy sleeves are about to be sewn on the body. Here’s a close up of the hem. I took out the provisional cast on, knitted a few rows and then grafted the edge to the backside through the purl bumps.
The dolman is started (no photo) but not much progress. Getting going on that one is a bit daunting after reading all the questions posed by classmates on our Yahoo group. I don’t think I can concentrate on it without heat.
By the way, that book called “The Complete Book of Traditional Guernsey and Jersey Knitting” was written by Rae Compton. It’s a nice short read packed with tons of information about various ganseys from all over Britian and Scotland. It’s got me thinking about the one we’ll be knitting for class.
