I'm going to have to buckle down and switch out from using Blogger. The new update is really annoying and the FTP still isn't working for me. The reason I always liked Blogger was it's user friendly interface. Even non techie people can get it to work. Not anymore. I'm pretty sure my RRS feeds still aren't working.
Anyway just a quick update on the Lopi sweater. It's done except I need to put a facing over the screwed up steek. I'll pop up to Joann's today and look for some ribbon.
Okay, let's get to the Year in Review:
designed by Elisbeth Lavold and knit in her Cotton Patine yarn.
I loved this top! It was a fun and fast knit. It was a great color and it looked nice on me. So what's up with the past tense? Um, the yarn wasn't color fast. I used to store my sweaters on shelves that got some sun and this one faded terribly. I can't wear it as is. Eventually I'll probably dye it, but I'm sad that the color didn't last. I've also heard that the yarn fades with washing as well. So I plan on replacing it with a more durable yarn one of these days (it really was a fast knit). It's just as well, as the color palette for the Cotton Patine is pretty limited for my skin tone (there were only maybe 3 colors to chose from).
So the year started off well... great finished projects and even Garnet got quite a bit of wear before it started fading... let's see if that continues....
Keep on Knittin'!
