Ok, maybe this posting every other week thing doesn't work too well. Not only do I not stick to the schedule, but I lose track of what I've posted about and what I haven't. Sigh. Oh well.
I do have some stitching to show. I've started Isobel Stuart by the Essamplaire. She's a pretty one! This is the bottom left corner of the piece.
It is a kit so I'm using the provided linen and threads. I've finished the green of the border (which meets -- yay!) and at least some of the border flowers.
I also finished the 4th row of my mitered square blanket.
It's such a fun thing to knit!
I've started swatching for a sweater, the Rowe by Michele Wang. I have always been intimidated by intricate cable sweaters, but have always wanted to knit one. And lucky for me, there is a class for the sweater down at Michele's shop, Gauge and Tension. So I am swatching in preparation for the class. I'm using the color Flannel in the called for Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn. Loving the cable work so far! This class has already given me the push I needed to try fancy cabling. Yay!
Of course, with my luck, the swatch will come out to the wrong size, but I can hope!
What else has happened since I last posted? Oh all sorts of things, I imagine. Like, for example, the father type got to go on a Google paid vacation to St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands with his work colleagues. Google knows how to treat its employees well!
And we've had glimpses of the girl child periodically, at home, and in NYC. Here she is surprising the father type on his way home from work with a birthday surprise!
And of course, the father type and I have had our own adventures, including a late lunch one day at Michael Jordan's restaurant, The Steak House NYC, in Grand Central Terminal. Such a view!
Sorry the pictures are so dark. :( I wish you could see the beautiful ceiling better.
Mia never likes when we leave her home alone. If she had her druthers, we would be home with her at all times!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
