Ye ole Wonderful Wallaby is coming along nicely in salmon wool.
Yesterday was the first day that knitting merino in the near-summer became uncomfortable, which means one thing: It's time for full-throttle.
For the next several days, I'll be blasting through the yoke, ribbing the neck, stockinette stitching a hood, and sewing up the underarms.
There's an optional tie at the neck ribbing, with three choices: I-cord, crochet and twisted cord.
But that's thinking a little far ahead. I've set a goal: to finish the sweater by the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are forecast to reach a temperature high of 76 degrees. Wish me luck.
