As is her way, she naps on this particular bed in a slightly guilty slumber, because not only has she only recently been allowed up on this bed ~ which was mine before moving in with Jeff ~ but it’s the only piece of house furniture she’s allowed on. Well, wait, that’s excluding her own chair in the main room, (and mind you , she has three full-sized dog beds in the house as well ! ) There seems to be a theme elsewhere in the knitterly community in which I virtually pack around with, as I was reading another knitter’s blog I found a coincidence that a very similar beast was keeping company somewhere up North, the companion of Celtic Cast-On !

So the finishing is taking place ( binding off here) with Nieces’ Spring Sweater Tee’s.
How unlikely for me, this near neon mass of knitted color !
But kids, you know, they love color and they love intense shades.
Learning curve: Absurdly it’s taken me three times (each) to knit the neck applying a new technique of short-row shaping around the whole neckline, 2/2 rib , and binding off , to get the ‘tee’ neckline shape that I want. It didn’t help that I just kept changing my mind. Learned plenty, and made notes ! Just have to weave in the ends and wash & block. Then I can take photos of them modelling the sweaters, which is by far the best part of the whole thing. This year they’ll be ready ahead of time !
