minor details about making stuff

adventures in yarn!

Saturday, September 09, 2006

my current project is an adult sized version of the baby sweater i recently completed. i liked the "icelandic" yoke sweater format and figured it couldn't be too hard to make one in a bigger size (it isn't). it's been a great way to use up some of the pretty wool tapestry yarn that i have been finding at the thrift store. the blue wool is also thrifted. i made a minisweater out of it at the beginning of the summer (my first ever finished knitting project!), but since i haven't worn it yet because i'm sick of things that are that short i've been pulling it out for my "grown up baby" sweater. (i'm definitely going to have to come up with a better name than that!)
we sailed to cuttyhunk this weekend and the sweater came along for the ride. crocheting is the perfect boat project. it keeps me occupied enough so that i don't get bored and want to go below and nap. but it isn't so detailed that it might get ruined when we're bouncing around over the waves like you do when you're in a little sailboat. my knees were grateful for the woolly warmth, it was a little chilly in buzzards bay!
