Who wears a sweater in 100 degree weather?
In fact, Tony likes to keep the house so cold, that I have been wearing it while lounging around the house, just to keep myself from being frostbitten. (hi Tony!) But, I cannot wait for the weather to get colder so I can wear it to work with a nice pair of jeans and cute boots, or for a fall afternoon of wine tasting in Virginia wine land. For now, I will have to be content with wearing it around the house, or showing off outside on our deck.
Tony loves it, and is getting quite impressed with my knitting techniques (as am I). He wants me to knit him as sweater, but I have told him time and time again, unless we are engaged - no sweater. I am even apprehensive about knitting him some socks! (is that acceptable you think?)
Pattern: Salina from Vintage Knits: Thirty Knitting Designs for Men and Women
Yarn:6 balls Rowan felted tweed in Melody (50% Merino Wool 25% alpaca 25% Viscose)
Needles: (size 5 3 1/4 mm needeles) Denise Interchangeables (as always) Others: 4 rowan 00320 buttons ( I do not variate from the pattern much, as this is exactly what the pattern called for. Notes: So the arms are still a little bit big. I think I am making sizes bigger than me. (read: I think my boobs are bigger than they really are). But I looovvee this one!
1) After I received so many comments on how frogging is the right way to go, I have decided to undo my bolero jacket. I cannot stand seeing it in my closet not being worn. I have a ton of other things I want to knit, but I think this will jump to the top of my list.
2) It was Tony's birthday this past Saturday. No, he is not old! He is HANDSOME! Happy Birthday Tones!!
