These Days No. 2

 

1. "In process" frogging shot for Better Sweater No. 5 // 2. Harvested yarn. Such a lovely shade of blue! // 3. New pillows for our new living room! The back one is linen and the front one is a lovely cotton from Japan.

Today I finally cast on Carrie Bostick Hoge's Sibella Pullover (aka Better Sweater No. 5)! The journey leading up to this project has been long indeed. All the moving this summer really threw off my game and knitting, or rather time for knitting, became a luxury around here. I'm happy to report that after what feels like many months we are nearly 100% moved in (our kitchen renovation is basically complete and our living room is now livable - who knew painted floors took so long to cure?) and I can return to my regularly scheduled knitting program.

In celebration of our new living space, I sewed up a couple pillow covers with material that I've had stashed since before the summer. The mountain fabric I purchased from the amazing institution that is Stonemountain & Daughter in Berkeley. Such a fabulous shop!

Last thing: The Better Sweater Project was mentioned on the Craft Sessions blog, one of my absolute favorite sites! Thanks, Felicia! Visit the post for links to some of her very helpful yarn recycling tutorials.
