Something’s Missing

111108_0106 Hmm, I don’t know. It seems like something is missing…

… Don’t tell me … I’ll think of it …

Wait, I know! It’s the body of the sweater!

But, hey,  at least both sleeves are done. And the second one only took just over a week, which seems pretty speedy. I’m loving the colors, loving the pattern. The only thing I’m not liking is the 13-stitch float at the beginning and end of the color section, but, well …

111108_0098 And, my pretty MVFF Cormo? It really “bloomed” when I washed it, and ended up about 11 wpi–one of the thickest yarns I’ve done in a while. But I LOVE it. And it’s so light and airy, the skein was practically dry this morning–usually it takes a couple days for my skeins of yarn to dry.

Can I just tell you again how much I love, love, love this yarn?

Speaking of the Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm, they’re moving today! The details are spelled out here. Susan and Patrick are opening a second farm, the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm, and for a series of reasons have decided to winter all the sheep and goats in New York state–which puts them about 3 and a half hours closer to us for a few months … no complaints, here!
