Careful. Below is a pix of an infamous UFO. Look on carefully, you may NEVER see him again. He is quite shy and uncomplicated, kind of like the recipient.
Here he is!!! The Ecowool Raglan! The body is taking FOREVER! I knit and knit and knit and there is absolutely, completely, and unspeakably, NO progress. Andy is about 6' and so the torso + arms are sooooooooo long! I have almost 18" of body here. That last 2 inches are gonna kill me. Boring. 2x2 rib for the entire thing.
And then there is Grandma's Garden. I have enough of her to CO Bella. Now, with the original swatch, I didn't think the Garden was gonna work. But, after 3 careful swatches, we are a go on that beautiful poncho.
The top of the body of the poncho is an asymmetrical garter stitch. There are tons of live stitches at the bottom (if you have glasses you can see the waste yarn). Then 2 types of lace. I am really enjoying the miles of garter. I am so impressed with Dave's color work.
And then there is Technicolor Popcorn. I am thinking some mittens for a couple of nieces Grace and Naomi, 3 and 5 respectively. This is the roving I was spinning at the beach. It is a random spin. Meaning, thick and thin and strange. It is extremely springy. I am wondering if this is because it is 100% Merino.
