There are numerous things that you can learn from the above picture:
1. My room is a mess
2. Sometimes I take really terribly crappy pictures
3. ...and this is the most important one... I'm so close to being done with my Expedition! I just need to knit an applied i-cord along the neck, weave in some ends, give it a nice blocking, and sew on my buttons.
I thought that finding buttons would be a lot harder than in was. I thought I had already checked my LYS a couple of times before and always came up short, but the other day I came across some that I really liked.
and yes, that is the actual color of my sweater. Who knew? I steam blocked that swatch and I really like the way it looks. I'm going to do that with my sweater as well.
I was hoping to write up a longer post today, you know, another one of those long thoughtful ones, but I ended up doing other things. Don't worry though, I already took pictures, so I'm going to write up the post maybe this weekend.
Instead I'll just show you my sock again. I've only knit about ten rows since you've last seen it, but you've never seen it on my foot, so I thought I would show you what it looks like.
Alright, I've got some major work to do, I'll write again soon!
