How about we look at a few happy yarn and knitting photos to cheer us all up!
The sweater features lace panels down the sides - I'm almost done with the first repeat. I think those little bits of lace will be just enough to keep the stockinette body from getting boring.
And then the sweater I've queue'd up next. It's another Amy Miller design (yep, that will be three in a row*) and I bought Luma, a wool/cotton/linen/silk blend, from my Madison LYS. There aren't any keep-it-interesting details in this one, but I need a piece like this in my spring wardrobe (and I figure it will be good for Alaska, too!)
*I've knit a lot of sweaters from a lot of different designers and Amy is certainly my latest crush. I love that she mixes up construction methods, adds shaping where it's needed and writes easy-to-follow patterns. I also like her style. Expect to see more of her designs cropping up in my queue!
and p.s. it's so nice to be posting from my laptop today. I really appreciate all the encouragement and kind words y'all shared for my iPad posting over the weekend. For sure I need a lot more practice (and for sure, I don't need it today!)
