Shouldn’t have posted about spring, or appreciating sunshine, yesterday. Today the city is blanketed in haar, and even inside my head feels full of icy fog. Good day to stay home finishing a cardigan and baking though.
Anyone remember this?

I first posted that picture in October, and I finished the body before xmas. The sleeves have been crawling along, but last week I decided to finish this most ridiculous of commisions (ridiculous as in why did I agree to knit anything for someone else on 2.75mm needles).

Last night I blocked it and today is all about the seaming. A part of me loves seaming, the persnicketiness of it all, but I can see why seamless sweaters are so desirable. It took at least 2 hours to set in one sleeve and seam that sleeve. Still got to do the other side, but it’s looking good.

These boxes arrived, so I took a break to buy vegetables and bake soda bread.

I adore this packaging.

Vegetable stew and soda bread made from Irish soda bread flour from the above box. Mmmm…

Now I’m full of comfort food which has chased the haar away from my insides a little I guess it might be time to get back to the seaming.
