Hi all! I'm enjoying my days here in Mass, weather not too cold, no sales tax on clothes...what more could you want. At the first opportunity, my sister and I went to H&M. For those of you unfamiliar with this fab-u-lous store, it's very current fashion, not expensive and not made for the long haul. This turns out to be fine, as it'll be out before it pills up or falls apart. There are H&Ms only along the eastern seaboard and all over the rest of the world. Why would a company selling trendy clothing not make a beeline for California, I know not? Selling halters in the winter in Boston seemed an easier task than in 75 degree LA. Those Swedes like a challenge, and I guess it's fair since Boston doesn't have IKEA and we do.
This may be "rather" fitted when completed...we shall see.
Too much gray, Miss Clairol please!
I've made a fair bit of progress on my CE Star turtleneck. Front, back and part of sleeve #1 have been done. It's going quickly, but must bide my time as I've only brought the one project along. I've also got my unknitted gray yarn that I recall being Brown Sheep worsted. It looks thicker, but maybe knitting it up into a sweater, washing it a few times, then unravelling it and washing it again make yarn change a tad. I trucked this stuff across the US to get some help overdying the grayness. I'm thinking we'll handpaint it, and see what happens. If every skein is different, it may make for a really great sweater. Or, alternatively it would be an object lesson in trying to make ten skeins of different yarn look like an attractive sweater rather than a ransom note.
