But it is not bravery; I have no choice.
I wake up and live my life. Don't you do
~ Anthony Doerr,
All the Light We Cannot See
I completed my first bottom
up sweater and really like how
it turned out. I am especially
pleased with the neck and button
bands, something I usually struggle
with, but this time they came out
on the first try.
I only did one button and that is
mainly for looks since I don't wear
my sweaters buttoned up . I also
added a pocket to keep a hankie in
if needed during the winter months.
This was my first time using Berlini's
Merino Xtra yarn and while I found
it to be a wee bit splittie, I love how
soft it became when I blocked it.
I am working on my socks and
Aise' [not pictured] and am trying
not to cast on anything else until
they are finished. After these projects
that will only leave A Blanket in my
wip's basket and I know I won't be
working on it until the temperature
drops. Now I just need to stay off
of pinterest and Ravelry, too much
