Work? Combination of hurry up and never mind – we will do that after vacation. Unlike the US Army which keeps all organizations open through the holidays on a reduced staff/half-day work schedule, the British Army just plain closes organizations requiring a representative of each division to be available by phone. It also means that leave gets used up, whether or not you would really want to be off at this time of year. Must be nice to get more than 30 days/year and not be penalized for weekend days….
Started about a month ago, this is my second Hanne Falkenberg kit. The sleeves have been finished and sewn in.
Completed (sorry for the lack of mirror shots -grin).
There are a couple of recommendations that I would make to anyone wanted to knit this sweater. Not surprisingly, they are the same as for the Mermaid. First, I would start at the edge of the front with a provisional cast on. After completing the body and sewing together the shoulders, I would then knit the collar. As it is written, there is no way to avoid a seam in the collar (or sewing the collar to the back of the neck). This in turn gives a slightly unpleasant ridge any way you do it. For the sleeves, I would again start with a provisional cast on just so that the bind off would be simpler.
And on to another disk of CSI: It is Ms Copper and I who are enjoying this. The other two just look at us like we are nuts.
