Travelling again

I'm back in England again for a bit, enjoying this thing they have over here called "spring". Lovely stuff.

As we have a long weekend coming up for May Day, I'm hoping to do a little touristing, and maybe get out of Manchester for a bit to visit other towns. Hopefully there will be some yarn-related touristing to report. I'll keep you posted.

Sweater in a Sunbeam

I don't remember the last time that I worked exclusively on one project for this long. Going on three weeks now, Marjorie is not what I'd call an instant gratification knit.

But she sure is pretty.

With the back done, I'm now working my way up the front, with no signs of getting bored yet. Just as I start to tire of the constant cabling (on every right-side row), I get a nice long section of stockinette to break it up.

I'm planning to get this done to wear this spring. And with no signs of spring on the horizon yet (other than the occasional bit of freezing rain mixed in with the snow, but that kind of happens all winter long here), it looks like a reachable goal.
