I love the asymmetrical yoke, though I think I will be much happier with it once it's blocked. Hopefully the increases won't be so obvious.
The sheen of this yarn is beautiful. I definitely want to use it for other sweaters.
If there are any more sweaters.
I also started cutting and arranging my Patchwork Prism quilt.
I am liking the way the colors are going together, but I've realized that I really do not have enough different fabrics for the teal ring. It's killing me, because I was really trying not to buy any more fabric for this, but I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and pick up some more fat quarters. I'm realizing this is truly a scrappy type quilt that looks better with many FQs than just yardage of a few fabrics. Looking at this picture, I also feel the medium blues need to be more...medium. They are looking a little light to me. What do you think? Isn't the lighting in my sewing room, I mean, dining room awful?
And just to show you what we did with Grammy and Papa this weekend:
|Strasburg Railroad Engine 475|
We trekked the 2 hours down to Strasburg, just outside of Lancaster, PA, to the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum. Across the street they have a steam engine and cars restored to their Victorian era splendor, that run to the town of Paradise, PA, on their original timetable. The ride through Amish country was beautiful and Jack was speechless through the whole thing, which I think is a first! Definitely worth the trip.
