Half Done?

I’m never sure exactly what the halfway point of a sweater is — not, I think, when you’ve done 2 out of 4 pieces, since there’s still the collar and the sewing to do. But I may have reached that point (finally!) on the King Charle’s Brocade sweater. I’ve finished one sleeve

and I’ve done about 5” on the front. I know the pattern isn’t very easy to see in the dark yarn, and that picture was taken on a grey and rainy day, so if you’re curious, here is a close-up of the stitch pattern — but I warn you, the colour is completely wrong. Apparently the camera doesn’t like close-ups…

I’ve finished the baby socks and am now working on socks for myself from the Elann Esprit yarn I got a while ago. It’s cotton/elastic, so it’s a little different to work with, but I think I’m going to like the socks very much; they’ll be very snug and comfy. I should be done the first sock tomorrow or the next day, so I’ll post an FO shot then.

I’m sorry I’ve been posting so irregularly recently (because I know you’re all just wracked with disappointment if I don’t update every day!) but the knitting’s been going slowly and there hasn’t seemed to be much else in my life of interest. I spend large parts of my days at the library, I go to the gym, we make fairly ordinary dinners because we have no time or energy, and we haven’t been socialising much, so there’s not alot to write about. Oh, though we did go to a very lovely (possibly newish?) restaurant down on College St. on Monday — Gamelle, just east of Markham on the north side. It’s mainly French, with other Mediterranean influences, and while it’s not cheap (we were being treated by my very kind thesis supervisor) it has absolutely fabulous food, exquisitely combined and presented. I would recommend it to anyone who likes food. Of any sort.

I think that’s it for now — I’ll try to hurry up and finish the sock, so I have something to post about!

Good timing. I’m on the hunt for sock yarn just now.I like the idea of handmade socks that stay up. Is the yarn that difficult to work with? Is it difficult to find?

No excuse is necessary, after you’ve finished working all day who really wants to be inside? The sun is shining it is almost summer; spend the time outside, take time to relax and enjoy the warmer weather; you’re in Canada eh!
