(Almost) Wordless...

...and how often does that happen?

I'm getting somewhere, slowly. At least I think I am. But I cannot write about it because it's too nascent and my brain needs to process the meaning of things. I'm not sure if you get headaches when you think too hard? I actually sense the gears of my neurotransmitters grinding. It's bizarre.

Anyway, here's the (quickly) basted sweater. I'm using it to compare to the altered sleeve as I knit it.

  1. What a lovely textile that yarn/gauge/stitch combo makes!

    1. This headache has now spread to my neck.

  4. I don't know about headaches, but your last post gave me a nosebleed.

    Well, that and trying to knit my thin yarn at the same time....!!!

    ;-D

    You've figured it out already, haven't you?

    1. I have, I think. :-) (With so much assistance!) But I haven't got it done yet. Having said this, there are many more questions than answers on the tailored jacket I spent the second half of my weekend on.

  5. That looks great! You're so good at all this. When are you going to lauch your own line(s)?

    1. Ha! I have MUCH more to learn still.

  6. Instead of a headache, my brain tends to start craving chocolate to act a lubricant for overused gears. ;-)

    1. Um, that goes without saying. And rice crackers.

  7. LOL - I'm sitting in my studio surrounded by piles of four different t-shirt patterns - all ones I've sewn so the four t-shirts are here as well - and I'm comparing the cut and side seams and bust point and bust curve and ease and shoulder width and making notes and getting confused but eventually this should end up with the best back sewn to the best front with the nicest sleeve. That's the plan anyway. I get it.

    1. You, of all people, can totally understand my dilemma! :-)

  8. Headaches and migraines leave me with a fuzzy brain feeling and when I try to think through it, that's what I get, that feeling of the brain firing on one side and getting caught by cotton somewhere in the middle.
    Lovely sweater, please tell me you're going to wear that with red?

    1. Does it surprise you that I haven't got that far in my thinking yet? I suppose now I'll have to wear it with red :-)

    2. I love how the red threads (stitch holders? whatever those dangly things are doing) stand out against it. Just a little pop of colour.

      And yes, it does surprise me. I thought how to wear it would go with the wool selection.

    3. You know, I really didn't think too much. I knew it was a flattering neutral yarn. I figured I'd wear it with cerise or orange (the colours I often accessorize with). Actually, the "red" thread you referred to is actually cerise.
