Holiday knitting in full swing here – as I said to Alison:
Saddest auction ever – you know the woman selling the sweater is not Arleen, and I feel appropriately yarn righteous that she can’t tell the difference between Noro and Koigu (yes, i was searching EBay for Koigu). As I write this, the high bid is $34; let’s hope for Arleen’s sake it reaches the cost of the yarn it took to make the sweater.
Yarn spun from border collie hair; let me be clear – I would by dog hair yarn, but I do not know if I would buy “outside dog who has rolled in mud and whose hair is kind of smelly” yarn.
Tomorrow, we leave on a long-weekend car trip to upstate New York, and you know what that means – car knitting! So this is the “before” picture – I hope the after picture will be really ribby, and hopefully three stripes long.
