A Weekend

This was a fun weekend--the last before school starts and the job gears up.

The current project? All was well with the mixed dye lot in the back--I couldn't see the difference. The sleeves are a different story. You can certainly see the switches:

What does one do? I think I'm going to do the sleeves in the same dye lot. My guess is that multiple cables help to hide the variations, so I'll mix and match on the front section. I put this aside over the weekend to contemplate, but this seems the best course.

My daughter found the bicentennial dress that my grandmother made in 1976. I can't believe i fits. She decided that it was Cinderella's work dress:

A tiny stash enhancement: I bought this beautiful Fleece Artist Garter Stitch Kit from an ebayer--at a great price (about half the retail).

It is truly an autumn colorway--Mahogany. This should be lots of fun to knit!
