Greetings, and Dear Cynthia,
I'm back in school, and that sucking sound you hear is the noise made by my time being vacuumed up by school work. I didn't meet all of my goals for break, knitting or otherwise (ran out of time before I ran out of "to do" items), though in terms of knitting, there was only one item left unfinished -- this pair of socks. Here's the status on those:
Bamboo yarn, good fit, my mindless knitting for when I'm waiting for something... FUN!
The reason I didn't finish the socks is because of my Two Hearts sweater, also FUN:
My sweaters tend to flare out at the waist, especially if I knit them with waist shaping. So, I've started doing only the top half of the waist shaping. So, for this sweater, I cast on enough stitches for a sweater which is four inches smaller than my standard bust dimension, and after knitting seven or eight inches, I started making increases every six rows. I'll continue increasing this way until I reach my bust dimension, and by then I'll be close to the point at which I will start armhole shaping.
Still wondering how your Cassidy is going...
Have a great weekend!
