I need light
Can I just say I really don't like winter for just one reason... I don't mind the cold, the ice and the snow. I'm Canadian and a home-body. I'll just stay inside and knit. It's all good.
No... I hate the darkness. It's dark before 5 p.m. now. And when it is light out, it's usually dim and gloomy. (I do love bright sunny winter days when the sun sparkles off the snow - but those days are few and far between.) And aside from the fact that all that darkness is just downright depressing, it also means a season of crappy photos.
I can either take dull, lifeless photos in the weak, pathetic daylight.
And much sooner than I thought it would be. I cast these on on November 17th, and they've only been knit during my lunch hours. And I've skipped quite a few of those. I also went down to a 2.25 mm needle, but despite all that - this one seems to have just flown off. Hopefully the second one is just as quick.
As you can see from the first picture, I've opted for a picot hem instead of ribbing. But other than that and the needle size, I'm knitting it as written.
(And yes, there seems to be a bit of a red theme with my knitting lately... In fact, I'm casting on a red hat tonight... details on that coming soon.)
