I finally couldn't stand it any more, so I got in my car on Wednesday and drove to Columbus to see m'boys at ThreadBear Fiber Arts Studio. Since this summer's consulting job paid me in TB store credit, I got to bring home some lovely things: Elsebeth Lavold's new book, Jamieson's Book 3, a set of Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles, and a whole dye lot of Koigu Kersti in greens and purples.
Of course I immediately abandoned all current projects, spent a day swatching, and commenced on a boatneck raglan-sleeved pullover. It has the same style of neck as the ribbed raglan in The Purl Stitch, but all the shaping is different and mine is a seeded rib (K all RS rows, K1 P1 across all WS rows). I finished the first sleeve this morning.
