Serrano and I are in a fight. I can’t get the shoulders to look right and/or fit well.
Law school is still hard.
So I spent a lot of time knitting with Manos this weekend, and THAT’S been working out, at least.
Here is Ms. Redjeans, just after I divided the sleeves from the body. It’s SO hard to capture the color of the yarn, but this picture came the closest. Disregard how uneven it looks.
In one of the iterations of the “Manos Sweater for Mom” I had corrugated rib cuffsusing a contrasting color of Manos. The corrugated ribbing wasn’t working out for a number of reasons, and now that I’m doing Mr Greenjeans I don’t need the contrasting color anymore.
It’s very nice though, and very autumnal. The thick-and-thin nature of this skein made me think of Ysolda’s Urchin. I’m not really a beret kind of gal, but I thought it was fun doing garter short rows for the sheep. Urchin is a lot of fun so far!
