I just had to tell SOMEONE!!!
When the computer was on the blink and I thought I lost everything, what did I do to calm my nerves? I cast on and just started knitting!
Well, I designed a new sweater, which, I'm in the process of getting some pictures to show everyone, and then get that one out to publish, too.
I made it with some lovely sockweight lambswool (a pound cone of knitting machine wool, more or less) from a friend in Liecstershire who sent it to me. Natural gray -- on size US 7.
I can't wait to wear it, and here in Maine, it's just now getting to become sweater weather, too. This is a nice wool -- and fuzzy, too, so, there's an extra barrier against a stiff breeze.
It's nice and square shouldered and masculine in style.
...but I still have to type it up, now that the computer is back again. I also have to get pictures; but this sweater is what calmed my nerves, while I gently fixed the computer -- instead of tossing the thing out onto Grant Street three stories down!
