We had to drive out to Annapolis to the floor place yesterday to get the transition pieces that hadn't arrived early. On the way up and back I got the first of the Big Mister socks down. Last night I also finished my third Mosi hat and got that second sock cast on and cuff knit. No SSS for me.
Soldotna is now at 8 inches below the armhole. I'd like to get to 12 before I start the border and the ribbing. I hope the green holds out. Those two balls are getting mighty small.
I did figure out the issue with the seam thanks to this video by Purl Soho. The top is their method and the bottom is my wonky try at carrying all those yarns going up the side. It was simpler than I imagined. As usual I was trying too hard.
Pup's latest sweater looks like this and I am ashamed to confess I ordered her $30 worth of Pup pajamas on Amazon the other night.
I also bought her a $13 Fair Isle Christmas sweater from Marshall's on yesterday's excursion. We are going to the holiday thing at Nats Stadium for my birthday and it's a pup friendly event (with a $15 ticket for your pup!) so I want her to be warm and look festive. I was going to knit one but this one is better than anything I could make in so short a time.
Also on the trip to Annapolis we stopped in a Micheal's so I could get some fixins' for my naked door wreath. I wanted something that could stay up all winter since I'm just not in the ho ho ho mood this year. In this unholy mess I am NOT digging out any of my holiday bins. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Look at that bow. I tied it. Do you know how many tries it took? I am beyond chuffed that I pulled it off. I could have bought a bow but when I saw the pine cone ribbon (on sale) I thought I would give it a go. I love it.
Waiting at home in the mailbox was the first of the holiday cards. It was from Betsy who also enclosed the little snowflake stitch marker. How perfect is that? I love it.
