I restarted the pink 70s Jacket (I am renaming it because I am not using suede yarn) but the ribbing at the sleeve cuff is not tight enough. I will switch to #5s when they arrive in the mail. I won a mixed lot of 29 pairs of knitting needles, including #5s, for $18.01 + shipping, on ebay today.
It was one of those down-to-the-wire back and forths, and I finally won. Woo-hooo! I actually didn’t realize I had won, either, until I got an email from ebay. It’s kind of a rush. Like when you win at slots.
Because this transaction transpired at work today, I didn’t have a chance to check for a Kitchen Aid Mix Master (thanks for the idea mzundercover.)
I have come to the realization that I have a thing for cuffs. Really neat, interesting cuffs. Like the 70s Jacket has 4 inches of ribbing at the cuff and I love it. The yarn shows the ribbing really well. Maybe cuffs will be a new theme in my work.
Here’s the progress on Sorbet. I was contemplating not making this afterall, but I think I will. It will give me something nice to wear on my birthday anyway.
This is a lot of ribbing. Lot of ribbing...
