I'm pleased to say, I got my camera to work...finally! I have completely forgotten how to use it, so my pictures are going to be pretty wimpy til I have time to get out the little instruction book, but at least I can put pictures with the blog.
Here is Snow Sky in progress. Notice that sizeable error. I'm not even going to point you to it, I know you can see it. I was going to reframe the picture but T said -- what, is this like Playboy, where they airbrush out all the real life? I guess not. Anyway I have three thoughts about this error.
2. Perhaps it could be a design element, where the snow as it falls down the length of the sweater begins to dissipate.
3. Native American blanket weavers (according to Susan Gordon Lydon in The Knitting Sutra) intentionally weave in errors, so their souls can escape when the work is done. That's it! I meant to do that.
Overall I am very pleased with Snow Sky. The fabric feels wonderful, now that it's doubled. The motif is lovely. And I'm making progress!
