I did some work on the fair isle sweater yesterday--it was cold and rainy and sweater weather.
The second sleeve is going much, much faster (although it doesn't quite look like it here, does it?). It is going faster for two reasons: first, because I've already worked out the colors so don't have to think in that area and second, i can see what colors are coming up next so I know whether I can break the yarn or not. I also don't have to think so much, which makes it goes faster. I think this sweater will look great!
Next week is the last week of classes, and my students are finishing papers and doing presentations. It is crunch time, though, to get ready for spring term. And we need to do a bit of halter training on a little alpaca man. So lots of stuff coming up.
