And of course there's been more time for knitting.
My Hitchhiker now has 35 teeth. And since the pink wrapper on the Easter Peppermint Patties matches the shawl, I don't feel the least bit guilty about eating them.
And... The Hitchhiker has been abandoned while I knit obsessively on my Swoncho. I've been torn about knitting one of these for a while now. Several people from my knitting group have knit one and they all seem to love wearing it and I've been wanting to knit some kind of colorwork sweater for a while now but.... I worry that every time I move my arms, my belly will hang out. Not a good look for me! I plan to make mine a little longer than the pattern calls for but still...
Whether the swoncho covers my belly or not, it's a fun knit. I'm enjoying the colorwork, even the rows with three colors. Working with three colors really isn't any more difficult than working with two. The first couple of stitches were iffy, then the process just fell into place. Easy peasy!
I hope it's going to look all right. I'm using stashed yarn so my color scheme was limited. My daughter tells me the purple and red are hideous together but I like the combination. What worries me is that there's not much contrast between the purple and the dark gray. And the more I look at it, there isn't that much contrast between the red and purple either. I hope it doesn't end up looking like dull stripes of color against the light gray background. Oh well. If it doesn't work, it's not like I don't have more yarn. I can always try again.
What's keeping you busy while you stay home?
