Garnet is at the finishing stage. Here's the body with the shoulder seams attatched (3 needle bind off for those that are interested). The sleeves are knit, but I still have the cuff to put on them. Then the neck ribbing, some seaming and some weaving. A nice little summer top ready to go. A great knit to say the least. And look... lace!!!!
Sadly, since I'm so close to finishing Garnet, I've put
As I blogged the other day, I'm not sure if that's the full length of it or not. I'll work the fronts to the same length and hope that I can add an other 2-3". If not, it's no big deal. It's a good length, but I was hoping for a smidgeon longer sweater.
It's an amazingly beautiful day out (hence the outside shots today). The sun is now up when we get up (yeah!!!!) and it's going to hit 70 today. So it's also supposed to rain, but right now it's just delightful.
In non-knitting news (which is rare in my life... unless it's a video game, of course), Matt's first race of the season is tomorrow. It's a time trial and his first season as a Cat 4 rider. The weird thing about this race? There's a stop sign in middle of it. The riders actually have to unclip and put a foot down in middle of a time trial. We're hoping for a decent finish... it's not the kind of race that Matt is going to excell at. No major climbs. He really struggled with TT last year, so with the new TT bike and the training this off season, we're just hoping for a high finish.
Have a super weekend and Happy Knitting!!
