I’ve kinda been out of the blogging world this week, but I have been knitting behind the scenes if you will. On Friday, I was able to bind off the body on Angelica, which gave me hope to finish this last weekend. But alas the bind off was too tight, so I undid the bind off, added an inch of length and bound off again with bigger needles. Still tight! umm me thinks I need to add some hip increases, oops. Oh well, at least that will be fast. I think I’ll work on the sleeves though first and then go back and deal with the body. Nothing like false progress to raise the spirits.
So far this has been a relaxing and enjoyable knit, which I really needed this last week. I’m talking about getting both stitch and row gauge people! The fit … perfect! And the hipknits silk is soooo soft. It doesn’t dry my hands out like other silks or silk-blends have.
