So I realized, it has been a hell of a long time since I have actually posted a Finished Project on here. It's not that I have not been knitting, it's more that I forget to get out the camera and take the pictures. So here is a sweater that I finished last night. I purchased the yarn at Gove City Yarns in Gove Kansas when Eric Paul came out here. It is Taos by Crystal Palace Color 12. The pattern is just a top-down raglan in 3x1 rib. I figured out the collar thing that I had questioned on last week and finished it with Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. It is damn stretchy! The yarn is beautiful when it is knitted up but is somewhat of a bear to work with. It has a very loose twist so quite often the yarn separated and I had to back out a bit and retwist it. Of course once knitted it is plenty strong. One more word on this yarn... pick a pattern that you don't have to frog or tink too much... it felts in a heartbeat.
Otherwise, I am trying to finish getting packed, I only have a little over a week left here. My last day at work is next week Thursday. I am taking my mom to Gove this Saturday. Every so often the owner has a Knit in Gove day and has amazing sales, give aways, food, lots of good stuff. She realized that Saturday is 5 years to the day that she opened so she is having even extra sales to celebrate. I won't be buying any yarn, sadly need to save every penny I have for the move, but it will be a very fun day anyway.
I pull into Long Beach on November 4th and can't wait to get there. Sometimes it seems so far away until I realize how much I have to do in just over a week. And yes, I have all of the stash packed.
