>Can you believe I didn’t have enough of the Jaeger Matchmaker to finish the socks? I should have given up on them after the third attempt on the Bond – it was a definate sign. But no, I had to keep on trying and just when I thought everything was going to work out fine it kicked me in the teeth and said “Hah, better luck next time sucker”. So the Jaeger socks are no more.
Here’s the Patons Totem sweater:
I’m pleased with the way it knitted up and I do like it but there’s just one thing that bothers me. I don’t really think I should be baring my midriff at my age (41), twenty years ago maybe, or even ten years ago. I don’t know if it makes me look like mutton dressed as lamb. Maybe I should wear a T shirt under it – I don’t know. Or maybe I’m just being paranoid.
I finished spinning the rest of the yarn and now I’m just waiting for it to dry so that I can finish knitting the scarf. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be long enough.
Talk to you later,
