I finished this sweater for Delia that I had started in April. I put my Cypress on hold because I wanted to knit something colourful and stripy so I switched to this project using a fabulous yarn Delia selected that is self-striping. All the info is on my ravelry page.
The pattern was generated from a phone app, Raglanify, which is pretty great to use. I really like choosing my yarn first and then using a pattern that is customized to my gauge. This my second sweater, I was all accessories and small project before now.
Fall is coming. It rained the last two mornings. There is a hustle in the air with all the back-to-school energy in the world that we watch but doesn't affect us, being homeschoolers. We still do the exciting stuff—the girls buy school supplies because that is just so much fun and the prices are so good. I also have finished Sadie's fall coat (I will show this soon) and am about to start Delia's. I love sewing their coats so much. This year they have had a lot more interest in the design, so animal prints and faux-fur are making an appearance.
I just finished an Ann Tyler book, Searching for Caleb I always like her work. It's poignant, quirky, and relatable.
We just saw the newest Woody Allen, Blue Jasmine. It was good, but it was heavy. Not really date-night material. We saw it at Cinetopia, (groupon deal) and watched it while eating food. You can order from a menu from your lounge chair, with your feet up on an ottoman. We ending up sharing the Nacho Supreme and a brownie. There was an opening musical act, a guy who was really good. He was playing accordion and singing. The last song seemed pretty personal and I wondered how many people were listening to the lyrics.
