Beth has been having computer problems, so she hasn't blogged for a while, but has been using the time to swatch -- "I've finally gotten pretty close to gauge - I should probably be doing that needle switch off thing that you are doing to get it perfect, but I'm far too lazy and forgetful. I liked Suse's idea to start with the yoke since it's the smallest piece, so that's where I'm at right now. Hope to have some pictures soon!"
Suse writes, "Nary a thing to show off. Son #3 requested a handknitted jumper as it's coming up for winter here. Why do the children's needs automatically come before the mother's? I don't know, all I know is that I have temporarily abandoned Pearl Buck (sadly) and have done the back and two sleeves of a 7 year old's jumper. In a very similar colour to my Pearl Buck, so at least we'll match when I finish both."
Again with the social life chez Bluestocking! It's making my head spin. We had a cousin's wedding on Saturday -- Laura was the bridesmaid. This photo, from when she was trying on dresses, is especially poignant for me, as the dress made me aware of how fast she is growing up, and the way she is sitting shows how much she is still six.
So, well, I didn't get much knitting done this weekend!
