Stacy was there. And Sara was there.
Sara knit a Hallowig.
Then This Little Cutie tried it on and it was the general concensus that it looked much cuter on her than on me. So she got to take it home.
And (Drumroll please)
Stacy finished her first project! It's a scarf for her husband, and she cast-off and everything! Hurrah! Three Cheers!
I'm seaming Sports Team II, but in the meantime have cast-on some socks for bus knitting (and Socktoberfest). Pictures anon. Right now I must go and take my Pollo con Arroz (it's actually Pollo sin Arroz right now, since I made the arroz separately and haven't combined them yet) off the stove and put it in the refrigerator so Younger Son can take it to school tomorrow. And just when did the little (there's a noun here somewhere, I just haven't decided which one I want to use yet) let me know that I was expected to cook this dish for everyone in his class? Why, just ten minutes after I had gotten undressed and settled into bed for the evening.
Hollyboc asked about Sports Team II:
I love the sweater! Did you put the letters on in duplicate stitch or did you knit them in?
I knit them in in a combination of fairisle and intarsia techniques. I carried the yarns, exchanging them as in fairisle while knitting the letters themselves, but only carried the pattern yarn (the yellow) for the part of the row the letters were in, like intarsia. I had to twist at the color changes every row at the beginning of my lettering to prevent holes, but after that I carried one yarn in each hand like I do for fairisle. Make sense?
