rosamund's cardi is coming along! i actually took this photo last weekend - a three-day holiday, very very rainy long weekend in which i became addicted to the british tv series skins and watched all of seasons 1 & 2 in the loft while knitting. it's kind of like my so called life meets gossip girl, and it's good.* so good that when netflix "watch instantly" hiccuped and one of the episodes wouldn't play, i bought it from itunes. so. go watch and report back!
in the meantime, i've knit through the waist shaping and am heading down the long stretch! i'm going to lengthen it a bit, though, because i find that tunic-style tops flatter me a bit more than waist-skimming. i'm so excited to have a hand-knit sweater in a color that will match most of my wardrobe! i'm also excited to have more wool to wear. 'cause guys? it's darn cold here. i know, i know... it's not below freezing temperatures or anything. but we live in a beach house. with no insulation or central heating. and leaks in our laundry room and bedroom, which can't be fixed until it stops raining and the house dries out. *sigh*
but really, i can't complain. far more insane, horrible things are going on in the world, and i'm sure you've seen stephanie pearl-mcphee's knitters without borders tally by now. over one million dollars donated by knitters to médecins sans frontières, with amazing independent designers giving up huge percentages of their pattern sales to various aid organizations.
little bunny says - i've donated the bit that i can, have you?
p.s. - maeve very much likes our new duvet. thank you all for the ikea recommendation - we went there last weekend and it's working out beautifully!
