It’s quite a dreary dark rainy day here, so I had a hard time finding a spot with enough natural light to snap a photo. Philippa’s sweet little sweater is blocking and I cast on for a leksak tunic for Phoebe a few days ago. I’m a few inches below the underarm now, so I’m hopeful this will be a fairly quick knit, although a sweater for a seven year old will inevitably take longer. I’m knitting it with yarn leftover from my Lila sweater, Shepherd’s Wool in color way seabreeze. I’m knitting her the size 6 because her chest fits those measurements better and I remember this yarn blooming a little bit once blocked. I seem to always knit their sweaters too big, despite getting gauge when I swatch, so I’m hoping this will actually fit her just right.
I’m still reading We Took to the Woods and enjoying it. It’s a very peaceful and engaging read for before bed, which seems to be the only time I have lately.
