The last post belies the energy levels. It was written Saturday afternoon under the delusion I was/had improved. How can one feel better before getting (much) worse? I never saw Sunday and Monday was only slightly better. There were no photo shoots and little knitting was accomplished. I'm praying the first day of the year is a turning point. Sunday was a snowy day and big fat flakes of Utah best snow fell all day long. It was so beautiful, so peaceful.
THE swatch was finished and washed. This is only a swatch. If it were more than a swatch the yarn would be a lovely shade of gray and it would be much bigger around. Later on Monday, as I began to feel (ever so slightly) better, all the EZ books came off the shelf and calculations were made for the EPS. I should be able to cast on later today as planned. Before then I need to decide between the ribbing or the hem. First thoughts are for a one color hem on the body, with colored hems for the sleeves and, perhaps, a bit of colorwork, too. I'll share the calculations in a later post.
Since my goal was to finish what was on the needles before the end of 2007, (Kelly Cardigan, RIP. It's grow or go around here.) there wasn't much knitting except for the elegant blue gloves. They are lovely and waiting for their day to show off, as is the long suffering Logan River Wrap. The main focus for 2008 knitting, in the short run, will be the EPS, but there must be a little something on the side, no? A little bit of beauty, a little bit of decadence, a little bit of elegance...as in lace? Yes.
