A Quick Pic

I had some relatives come into town this weekend. These people are not only relatives, but also close friends with me. (being a relative does not always mean that I like you) And most importantly, these people have BOTH a working camera, and a USB cord. That's right folks, you actually get to SEE my knitting. I'm talking about real pictures, of my knitting. Not me posting stolen pictures and telling you to imagine it in the colors I made it in.

I am in a hurry today (the only reason that I am doing this today is because I realized that it had been a week since I blogged last) So I will only post a quick picture of the sweater that I'm working on, and that will have to be all.

It's the Seamless Yoke Sweater, form Knitting Without Tears. I may have said it before, but I LOVE Elizabeth Zimmermann. And this is very Zimmermann-y

Okay, I can't figure our how to move the picture, so it will just have to stay at the top. (Why don't they make a Bloggers operational manual) (ETA: I figured out how to move it, that was really easy)

As must be done with all of Elizabeth Zimmermann's patterns, it must be heavily modified. I added some Fair Isleing to the bottom of it, and some to the middle of it. I like to think that it looks great, and I do hope that you agree with me.

I finished one sleeve, and have gotten the other up to the elbow. The Fair Isle at the bottom of the body is also at the top of the sleeve. I can't wait to get up to the yoke. Maybe then it will be a little bit more interesting.

Off to Knit Night at the bookstore!!
