First order of business: Zoe’s dress arrived on Friday morning and she will have her costume for her two costume contests. Who knew Halloween was such a competitive sport? Hopefully it fits, she was in school when it arrived and her parents didn’t want to yank her out in the middle of the day just to satisfy my curiousity.
Second, the Malabrigo I got at Purlescence is wanting to be something RIGHT NOW! I was thinking cardigan with some leg o’mutton sleeves in simple stockinette. I don’t know why I’m feeling so Gibson Girly right now, but I really want to try such a crazy sleeve (modified for worsted weight yarn of course).
I shan’t cast on until the Phildar sweater is sewn up though, I’m too close to lose focus. After Phildar comes the mutton. I’ll start with the sleeve and knit a sweater around that. Odd, but it may work. I’ve put my mental sketch on paper so you know what I’m talking about. Who thinks this could work?
