FO: St. James Sweater

So what have I been doing during my internetless time? Well, to begin with, I finished my St. James Sweater. I love the fit of it. It's fitted, but not too tight. I also like the color, and the adorable ties. The ties were a pain to do, but totally worth it.

The only thing that I don't like is that the stitches are a little uneven. While I probably am partly to blame for this, I think that the big culprit here was the yarn. Some yarns just seem result in less even stitches.

Pattern: St. James

Yarn: TLC Cotton Plus, Light blue

Mods: None

It’s Been Awhile

I promise I didn't forget about you- my internet was down, and my landlady was out of the country so it couldn't get fixed. I went THREE WEEKS without the internet- and it felt longer. But I'm back now.

During my internet-less time, I got a TON of reading done- I was averaging a novel every two days. I also got a lot of knitting down. I'm working on a top and a scarf, and I'll provide pictures soon.
