I'm still plodding along on DH's cabled vest. The original design concept was close-fitting, but after consideration, He Who Makes Big Eyes at Me decided more ease would be nice. Soooo... the front is wider and has less shaping (the photo shows progress to the split for the V-neck)...
and the full-fashioned back is (gasp) going to the frog pond. Clearly the work of the devil duckie.
This photo captures the subtle ombré effect of Cashsoft 4-Ply. On the whole, I'd prefer more uniform color – a heather or tweed or solid solid.
Two pairs of socks are in the Lenten queue. One pair is a shamefully late holiday gift, now birthday present (eek) – more on this, er, tomorrow. The other pair is for my Sockapaloooza pal, who seems to like crazy socks. I can do crazy, hehehe.
A need for quite a few prayer shawls is looming in the near future. I plan to stay far, far away from the latest dispute [ETA: link updated] (
There's seven weeks in Lent. I should note I don't necessarily intend to start and finish everything named here – cable vest, two pairs of socks, two shawls – during the season. Some are already in progress and I fully expect others will continue after Easter, plus other projects are sure to rear their pretty heads. Instead of raw production, the aim is mindful creation; being observant, that is, to participate in a tradition and also to see into it keenly.
