I haven't caught the current plague that is going around though both girls had it. I haven't been out and about much lately because I have been trying to draft a round yoke Fair Isle sweater using my TNT sweater pattern as the base. I read lots of books on this type of sweater and got totally confused, but finally turned out the first draft. I already started the ribbings for the first try. It will be dark gray with the yoke design in two shades of mustard yellow/gold. I hope it works, but you don't know until you try. The royal blue sweater is all done, but it doesn't really look that good on me. I tried a new neckline idea, and sometimes these things work and sometimes not. As long as I learn something from the effort, I'm happy. This time I learned that the extra side shaping looks better on me.
I finally got a call from the knitting machine shop that has my bulky machine. She says it is all fixed and ready to go, so I will go and pick it up this week. I feel that the knitting phase is starting to wind down after going strong for about 2 1/2 months. Maybe I'll start sewing again soon.
