Andrew went up to Chicago this week to find us an apartment and took the computer with him. My job was to pack the kitchen. Andrew: mission accomplished. James: heh. I got absolutely no packing done since the last post, but I did bang out a serious pile of finished objects. Chicago gets cold.
First off we have the gloves:
I freaking love them. I've been planning this project for two years and I'm so excited that they're finished. I loved knitting them so much that I was genuinely sad when I cast off the last stitch. There is a hand modeling shot coming up, I couldn't wear 'em yet because they're still wet.
Next we have the cowl thing:
This came out a little weird due to the shorter (one skein) length that I preferred to the slouched Edwardian look of the original pattern. The cowl fits over my head, but is too loose to adequately warm the neck. I think I'm in love with the diagonal feather and fan action, though.
Finally there is the Manly Angora Scarf:
I'll weave in the ends and wash it this afternoon, but I declare it done. It measures a good seven and a half feet, plenty long enough to wrap twice. I really like the random striping, especially since the colors are so subtle I wasn't able to tell the difference in incandescent light.
Fluffy, fluffy angora.
