Sunday noon

This looks like the height of luxury, doesn’t it? But I think we’d earned it by singing for three hours in English, Latin, and Italian. I’ve managed a lot of knitting on my Pas de Valse cardigan during the 10am services (and other occasions impractical for lugging about a basket of yarn and accoutrements for stranded or intarsia colorwork).

I’m interested to see how this piece will look after blocking. It’s knit with a fingering-weight 2-ply Bluefaced Leicester wool on US #6 needles, which gives a rather pebbly stockinet fabric. I’m giving it entirely too much of my knitting time, but I’m so looking forward to having this airy, floaty cardigan ready for the very first spring weather.

    Just as I said manly mitts.
    Love the new cardi on the needles and can’t wait to see how it comes out.

    The gloves look wonderful with that beautiful latte art! You’ve reminded me that it’s been far too long since I indulged in a really lovely coffee. Pas de Valse looks gorgeous too. And, ooh, I have the same Schrodinger cube as you, assuming that’s what that is in the corner 🙂

    The gloves look very nice in action as it were. Of course, seeing the beautiful mug makes me miss drinking at a coffee house. It might be a height of luxury, but it is an affordable one!

    I agree with Jodi; you know how to spend a Sunday well! I love the color of your cardigan and can’t wait to see it modeled! You always style things so pretty.
