Go Gingham

I've made it through the sleeves. We had some serious counseling, some new mathematics, some recounting, and some creative usage of the images, but we are good. They are the same size when placed on top of each other.

Notice that Rollins the cat is still obsessed with the Muench Naturwolle? It must have a lovely sheepy smell, because he rarely makes this sort of effort to move around unless there is food involved.

I am starting the large collar. This also involved some creative use of the pictures. I can see the stitch definition in the images and the number of stitches in the picture don't equal the pattern--or the way that I read the pattern. So, like the checkers in the body of the sweater, I'm following the picture. Hmph.

I also was able to find a few more items to add to my book and magazine collection. Like I need something else to read or knit! The new Sally Melville Color book is the highlight here. Her directions are SO wonderful and clear. Who else gives 3 different ways to hold the yarn in color work?
