…and work within them. At least, when it comes to knitting and possible sweater-related injuries. ;o)
As mentioned in my previous post, St. Patrick is in time out due to excess cabling. I did some major stash digging and managed to turn up a bunch of Wild Apple Hill in Peacock and a couple of balls of Noro. I had an idea that I wanted something along the lines of Cobblestone but I didn’t have enough plain yarn to do it so I decided to do a top-down raglan with a garter stitch yoke. I threw in the Noro on every other row and this is what I have so far (I cast on Monday afternoon):
[Raveled here] Trust me, it’s prettier in person. In fact, I’m smitten with this sweater and can’t wait to finish it. ;o) The collar appears to have decided it wants to be a stand-up collar and if I can’t manage to wrangle it into submission, I’ll be doing a short steek and making it a v-neck (how’s that for showing your knitting who’s boss?)
In geek/website news, I’m having an issue with my hosting provider. The server on which JessaLuKnits.com resides has been having problems for over a week now. This means I’m not receiving some comment notifications and every once in a while they throw in a 503 error just to make things interesting. I am communicating with them (okay maybe there was a bit of yelling via email *ahem*) and trying to get my site moved to a server that is more reliable – in the meantime, I apologize for any errors you receive and please keep trying if you get one when you’re leaving a comment (because, as I’m sure you all have guessed, I’m a comment wh*re. ;op ). Thanks!
