Thanks for all the nice comments on Lotte! Some people were asking me about plans for the dolls. I'm still planning on doing photo shoots with them for a pack of Patchwork Set cards. That's why I'm trying to get them done so fast. I'm hoping I can finish up the last set this week and then start working on the accessories and hopefully we can start taking pictures this weekend. It's the peak of Fall around here. I'd love to get some turning leaf action in the photos.
Last night though I had to take a break from the sewing room and veg in front of the tv so I turned to my knitting. I've been working on this sweater for Oscar for months and this is as far as I've gotten, about 2/3 way through the back.
I'm so not feeling this project. Itchy cheap wool and these damn cables around the waist. I'll never get them to lay flat. I've never ever once had "blocking" work for me. I think it's a myth. Like the unicorns. You know, the unicorns who wear nice flat-laying smooth handknit sweaters. Like the unicorns who must knit these beautiful things by Taule Design.
