I signed up for the Dream In Color Knit A Long (also known as DIC KAL) back in March (I think?), ordered a buttload of Classy in Cocoa Kiss, cast on for the Central Park Hoodie, then promptly ignored it. Since the deadline is June 1st for a completed item, I figured I’d better get going.
The last time I made the CPH, I knit it in the round up to the armpits, but this time I decided to knit it all separately and seam it. I don’t mind seaming, it turns out. And, my friends, I will be seaming until the end of time.
Last night I soaked the pieces and laid them out to size (which, by the way, took for-fucking-ever), and if they’re dry by the time I get home, I’ll start seaming them tonight. Once they’re seamed, I just have the hood and button bands to go.
I’ll leave you with a photo of a painting hanging at Carol’s house that I just LOVE.
Don’t you just want to steal it?
Oh, and I hit my 5 skein mark. (6, actually)
(1) skein Opal traded for some pattern books
(1) skein unmentionable used for a birthday gift
(2) skeins Moda Dea used for random ugly stash-buster bag
(2) skeins DIC Classy for remainder of left front plus sleeves of CPH.
I am now free to buy one skein of yarn. (na na na na boo boo, Laura)
