“Worry is like a rocking chair--it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere.”

Being my first multicolor project ever, it might be considered odd that the backside is actually more awesome than the outside... But the koigu yarn is just magical! When daylight hits this mitten - it has a clear pattern. In the shade it's just greenishly beautifully random.
The backside is stripey and shiney. I might actually wear these inside out! When I get around to making number two.


I'm making a very personal version of the rogue sweater. First of all I'm making it a cardigan. Second of all I'm making it huge. Much longer than the pattern says it should be, and thicker. And I'm planning on lining it with a burgundy or black thin inner jacket. But now it's stitched together and all the knitting I have left is an i-cord edging along the zipper. And I'll block it with gentle steam and lots of pressure before measuring anything.
I'll take more photos shortly.

Wish me luck!

In other news I'm moving in a month to a big apartment, so I'm getting a yarn cabinet! And we'll be able to have the sewing machine out! And... I'll be decorating rather than knitting for a while I guess.
