It's Mariah Time...

Finally! I had some major computer issues that started yesterday...so far, I've managed to get some decorum here, but things still aren't as stable as I like. It has put me in a #*&@! mood.

Now, on to knitting...

Here is Mariah in all her glory.



As you can see, the sleeves are quite long, but I'm one of those that always pulls sleeves over her hands in the winter, so this doesn't bug me at all. I'll tell you a little secret...I did throw her into hot water, gave her a little agitation and then a shock of cold water hoping to shrink her a bit. It did help, but it's still very baggy on me...it can't be too bad though, considering I wore it all last night and today. Yes, it is my comfy cardigan...yes, I hope to make another in a smaller size. Now that I know the process, it'll be easier to make any adjustments.

Right now, I'm concentrating on Zigzag. This pic shows a much truer colour.




I'm enjoying knitting Zigzag, but it needs alot of my concentration. I've only done 6 inches out of 15, so far.

Which is why it is nice to have some mindless knitting on the needles. Here is the progress on my Socka socks...actually, I finished this sock, but I didn't get a chance to get a pic of it yet. [snicker] I really like the colourway of this yarn.




That's about all...now, I'm putting on my geek gear and heading into dangerous territory to do battle with my computer.

Now, if I could just remember where I put my sledgehammer?

Keep On Knitting...

I really love your Mariah! I didn't think anything of the pattern when I first saw it, but now I like it. I think because the one on knityy.com was knit in black or some other dark color, you can't really see any of the detail on it. And I don't personally think it really looks all that great on the model. But yours is gorgeous!

Hahaha! So mine looks bad, eh! It's true though, yours is nicer. Now that I see you guys making Mariah in all these light colours and how the cables pop, I think I might need to make another.

She looks gorgeous! Can I have a pic for my website?

And I love the beginnings of your zigzag. I like the sweater but wasn't planning to make one, but now that I see someone else doing it, I'm newly interested. Sigh. Such a follower.

Gorgeous Mariah. BTW, ZigZag is next on my list right after I finish Mariah. What yarn are you using?

Mariah looks lovely. Nice job! I'd love to see a close-up pic of the neckline and hood.

the impatient one is happy! that is just gorgeous. i will have to say, i would shorten the sleeves myself. i have very short arms, and normal length sleeves bag on me. very, very pretty. can't wait to see how zig zag turns out. and where's the finished sock pic? (fetches her own sledgehammer to help)

Great job on Mariah...she looks great on you. The cables really do show nicely in a light color.I like the sock too, nice color.

Kristin said...

Mariah is wonderful! You do good work girl!

Kimberly said...

Your Mariah turned out well but I must also say that Zigzag looks like it is going to be beautiful! Love the lavender yarn!
