Testing, testing...

I may not have my spinning stuff done (yet), but I did manage to swatch and draw/write up a pattern today that hopefully will be published. It's kinda strange for me to just do the swatch and pattern without making up the whole garment. Not to mention having to write out some sort of instructions for the knitter. My poor friend who volunteered to do this has NO idea what she's in for. Fingers and toes are currently crossed.
Here's what she'll have to work with:


I'm also working my way through the first third year Nihon sweater. I've got the back done and most of the front. Of course I will still have to write the pattern out so others can understand it. AND size it. Bleh.


At this point, I'll just be happy that it fits me.
So there.

Yummy! Just dreaming... if you were not so good at sizing then perhaps it would fit me instead of you.

Mmmm, the yet-to-be-test-knit one looks like it's gonna be YUMMY. The green sweater is gorgeous, of course, but I can't wait to see the *other* one.
