Well, it's finished. Basically.
(It's impossible to photograph Silk Garden. Seriously.)
It's undergoing some spot-blocking, mainly on the collar. It REALLY wants to roll. I may have to tack it down. And even though I shortened the sleeves, they're still really long. The shoulders are wide, and drop some. So, the jury is still out on how much I like it. I may need to re-block the hem and front opening, too, just to make them stay flat.
In other knitting news, I haven't purchased any yarn since Stitches Midwest. So today I did:
And I'm going to knit it up immediately. It's going to be a Ribby Cardi. Every time I see someone make one of these, I think I need one, too. And I have a hooded zip-up sweatshirt that I wear all the time and as a result, it's falling apart; the Ribby Cardi will make a great replacement.
Donna had to help me pick out the colors. The blue, "Heathered Blue" I can see, but the other color "Lavender" I can't really. I thought it was grey until I read the label. Donna assures me that it's a good color combination and she's not color-blind like me.
