I'm really close to finishing my Idylewylde. I feel like I have been knitting non-stop for months but that's not really true. I have it all done except for the hem. Oh, the hem!
I was fine sewing in the sleeves but sewing down the hem is so slow and tedious. And when I'm done there's a stockinette button band that will also need to be sewn down! I couldn't take it any more.
I started a new sweater.
This squiggly coil of knitting will hopefully turn into Plum Perfect from Knit, Swirl. I'm using two colorways of Malabrigo Worsted, Stone Blue and Paris Night. I think it's highly unlikely I will be able to wear this for Show and Tell at Knitting Camp but I may try.
Speaking of Knitting Camp, I'm stunned that it's nearly here. I fly to Wisconsin a week from Wednesday.
