Well, I can see the importance of blocking this knitted piece. The fronts of Ribby are just placed on either side of the back - it's not sewn or anything. There is a lot of curling going on and those ribbed sections pull in so much - can't wait to see what the sleeves look like. The color on the right will be the sleeves. It's kind of an eggplant color and I think the two colors will look great together.
I also have a finished t-shirt.
Too bad it's too cold to wear it yet!
Margene sent me the most beautiful cards. I told her that I will definitely be using them - after I steal a few of her design ideas. Thank you, Margene!
I've been signing up for a few things this summer - really need to edit the sidebar! Anyway, besides The Amazing Lace which I mentioned in the last post, I also signed up for the One Skein Secret Pal exchange. I love the book - it's full of some great ideas for using up some of those skeins in my stash. In the exchange, you will send one skein in June and one in July to a pal and then send them a knitted gift in August. We got our pals last week and I have to admit that I'm a little intimidated by mine. She has actually started her own yarn company. This company manufactures some pretty cool yarns and she (along with a team) somes up with the ideas for the new fibers and colors. I don't want to say too much even thought I doubt she reads this (of course, I thought there was no way my Secret Pal 7 read my blog and it turns out she had come across it). Anyway, it was a coincidence that I had just been thinking about ordering some of the yarn that her company makes - so after getting her name and checking out her blog, I figured I should try it out. It's on it's way along with the yarn for this and this. Geez, the internet makes it way too easy to shop!
