My dog ate my blog posts...

Yeah, I finally have an internet connection that works!  It appears that the dog chewed almost all the way through the phone line.  No, this isn't my lame excuse for not blogging all week, although I'm amazed at how much I accomplished with such limited computer usage!  I'm really glad to be back in this space and share with you what I've been working on...

I sketched this sweater a few months ago thinking it would be wonderful to have a simple sweater pattern with sleeves of a different texture.  On paper, it looked amazing, however, now that I have it knitted up, I'm not so sure.  It's still a beautifully constructed sweater but it doesn't have that defining contrast I was hoping for.  Maybe a different stitch or maybe even two different colors?  Oh well, back to the drawing board~

I also had time this week to dye up some yarn that has been singing to me on the shelf for far too long...

What have you been working on this week?
