The results of all that knitting are somewhat varied.
The Mondo Cable Pullover is completely done! The yarn was Blue Moon Fiber Arts Twisted in Sunstone, a wonderful bouncy worsted weight, although it is advertised as Aran.
The modifications include: Deepening the vee of the neck and adding four-plus inches to the length. To counteract the A-line of the sweater, at the point (and the construction is top-down) where the increases were to begin after the bustline, I simply switched to a smaller needle. My friend's gorgeous curves will fill out the sweater beautifully.
The knitting was complete well after ten last night, and I had initially thought it was too late to wash and block it. However, I knew it would not be done, until it was done. So, while it was soaking, I began working on other things.
The plan for the Lioness yarn was to knit Thorntower, despite the variegated nature of this dyed-by-me combination of sport and fingering weight. While I may not be far enough along to really tell, my instincts are telling me I should be very disappointed.
The garter stitch and reverse stockinette look lovely.
Putting that aside, I cast on for something that has been in my queue for ages.
Meet Gamine in the sadly discontinued Classic Elite Yarns Waterlily in colorway 1979.
I started a sleeve in-the-round for something different than the mass of stockinette that I had just completed.
One word: LOVE!
So, Thorntower is now in a holding pattern, as I move on...
Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!
