Sick Day WIP Wednesday

March 25, 2015

Rainbow sweater missing armIt has been a little while since I have put a post together, as life has taken up too much time lately.  It can be so difficult to find a few minutes of quiet to deal with photos and the internet.  I think I am also caught up in my monthly project deadline, and don’t have time for anything else.  When one has about 1 hour of free time a day, it is hard to use it for other things than knitting away on a project!  I am happy to say my Quebec project for March is complete, and I have a few extra days to devote to other WIP before I start a New Brunswick project.  I do not know yet what I will make for New Brunswick, I hope inspiration will strike soon.  Alas my beautiful rainbow sweater is at a standstill due to running out of yarn.  I have ordered more, and am waiting for it.  I seem to have plenty of the rainbow yarn left over, and I am working on a wee plan for it, as Fia actually asked if this sweater was for her.  If she asks, I should probably make her a rainbow sweater shouldn’t I?

V-neck sweaterAfter much hemming and hawing as to which sweater would come next in the production line, Firth, a custom fit V-neck pullover won.  I love, love this Western Sky yarn, and a simple pattern was needed to show it off.  As there was a lack of simple V-neck patterns already complete, I decided to try Custom Fit and see how it worked.  The idea is you put in your measurements, information from your swatch, and it make a custom pattern for you.

I was home sick today, which is why I was able to get started on Firth.  I have a sore throat, and sound like a rusty old crow.  My boss actually called me and made me call a customer.  I wasn’t too happy about that, as I was hoping for another nap, and the customer was not happy either to be talking to an old rusty crow.  He was getting very indignant on my behalf that I had to work when I sounded so terrible.  I believe he is now very upset at my boss, and I felt a lot better after talking to him.  It is nice when complete strangers have your back.
