almost there

… well kind of.

twenty eleven

Twenty eleven is growing steadily, though it seems like slow going.  I’m not entirely sure why, maybe knitting all that black wool? going up a size to compensate for a smaller gauge?  In any case, it’s one of those projects where I know I must be making progress — it’s getting bigger — and yet … there still seems to be a long way to go.

Pretty much like the studying.

Yesterday, I got through both the 19th century *and* the waist shaping, so I shouldn’t complain.  Goodbye naturalism, hello fitted cardigan!

I won’t lie, I spent a lot of time standing at the mirror wondering, is that really the narrowest point of my waist? how exactly does one locate the top of the hip? how long should it be?

Many questions.  In the end, it seems like I came close enough.

Today, I’m tackling the 20th century, epistolarity, and hopefully (finally) getting to the armholes.  A big day.

  1. it looks fantastic and sheepy in the best possible way. hooray for finishing the nineteenth century. (i will never be done with that century. but i’m okay with that.) good luck with the cardigan and the conceptual stuff.

  2. Hello! I came across you on Ravelry a while ago (my username is Jabberblather) and I felt it time to comment since I’ve lurked on your blog for sometime now. Just wanted to say that I love your writing and thoroughly enjoy lurking in your project photos! I hope to one day be as skilled with the needles as you.
