I've been doing some knitting here and there. This is me riffing on Parcheesi a bit, working on something more wearable -- I've mostly been "wearing" the blanket as a shawl -- hoping it'll work out as planned.
Meanwhile, I've started a sweater. Dubbed "My Going To The UK Sweater," it is a free pattern by Berroco called Montparnasse. I am using the specified yarn, Pure Merino Heather, in a color called Pesto Genovese. I envision this as a durable, go-with-anything, still somewhat stylish sweater to wear on planes, trains and automobiles while knocking about the U.K. I ripped out about 30 rows after taking this photo -- which I should have done when there were only 2, when I had the first inkling that those wonky few stitches weren't going to get better all by themselves. I carried on through a couple of football games (ahem, Go Pack Go!), finishing the back and getting a little start on the left front (the shorter of the two in this asymmetrical design).
