Its going to be a little like that today too. There are going to be a few days like that in the next week or so, but then I should be back to my normal knit all day self. So, in advance, if the knitting content seems sketchy, well, my bad.
On the very upside, I have been asked to knit a sweater by one of my boys. Granted he passed boyhood long ago, and he is a rather tall and broad shouldered man, he asked for a sweater.
We had a disscussion on Facebook about colour (he did not care) and fibre (he wanted cotton, but substantial cotton), and we came up with this.
The warm yummy goodness of Berroco Remix. I like it for several reasons. Its completly made from recycled fibres. Its got a significant natural fibres content. It feels good in my hands. It has a tweedy casual look. The colour is one of their new grays, with a warm brown undertone. Its really quite striking. Dressy an casual at the same time. Manly.
I can't wait to knit it. Had I been smart I would have taken his measurements when he was here last. I could be knitting on it had I been smart. But I wasn't, so I have to wait till I see him again. What I can do is knit a swatch and I can do that today in the corners of the day. I'm a little excited. I'm a lot excited.
Someone very important to me asked for a sweater and that is significantly different.
