I was about to swear off sweaters and be happy about it until the Mr. started hinting that he would love to have a nice wool hunting sweater. He wants this one
, but I told him if I spent that much money and time on a sweater for him and he came home with blood on it, I would have to cry. A lot. So we settled on this one
as a hunting sweater. I'm using Briggs and Little's Super
instead of the Bulky Lopi
that way the whole thing only cost about $40.00. I will eventually make him the Fair Isle as a good sweater for his non-hunting
days off. For some reason, to me, there is nothing so comfortable looking as a grey sweater.
Flounce is nearly done. I have to finish the last strap, add a small bit to the back with some buttonholes and weave in the ends. Girly thought it was great fun trying it on here and there. She sure loves helping Momma.
Things outside are getting more and more colourful.
Driving down the highway is a feast for the eyes and hopefully I can drive it again soon with a working camera to show you. In the meantime, with the crazy misty humidity yesterday and the cold bit of drizzle going on today, this is about as close to a walk as we'll get.
