I can knit again! The orthopedist gave me permission to take the splint off while at home and said that exercising the hand would be good (she suggested typing, but I’m sure knitting is good too). So I have a new project: “Penny” from the Debbie Bliss Summer Essentials book. Over at Ravelry I am the only person who is knitting or has knit it - and, annoyingly, the pattern is now available for free (and apparently called “wrap cardigan with ribbon”) though I bought the book last summer shortly after it came out. I am flying right through the sweater, too - I swatched Saturday and started knitting Monday night after procuring the proper needles; this is the progress after watching Brokeback Mountain that evening:
Then I was able to knit quite a bit Tuesday as I didn’t have work:
And I finished both the back and the left front yesterday, but they don’t line up perfectly - I think I forgot a set of increases on the front, so I’m going to have to rip it back out to the start of the raglan shaping:
This color is proving difficult to photograph; I don’t even have this much trouble with reds! The second photo seems the most accurate on my screen. The yarn is new to me and fantastic - it’s Vermont Organic Fiber Company O-Wool Classic 2-Ply in color 2012 and it is delicious! Hopefully I will finish before it gets too warm here in the city - it was about 70 degrees here today and so spring-y.
