Coughing and FO
Last week DH got a flu, and start coughing. Now it is my turn and I am actually coughing more than he for these days. The pills which doctor game me doesn't work well for stopping cough, I am just kind of tired....so far so good, that I have a decent excuse to stay in bed and knit....and I recognized today that while I am knitting I cough less. It is understandable that the knitting makes people relaxed, we always say, but actually it was first time personally that the theory worked out for me. So I finally started to joining work for my chelsea and finished today:
Pattern: Chelsea from Yarnplay of Lisa Shobhana Mason
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino, green(8.2skeins) and purple(1.4skeins)
Size: 34" (smallest)
Needles: US #9 and #8
Sorry for not daylight photos, but anyhow I think you can see. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sweater, it is really confortable to wear, the sizing is perfect, and I knitted this all over with reading something. The knitting itself is mindless and fast, just I was so lazy for not to join the pieces so long. I am so bad, for I missed the weather to wear it! This indulged my stockinette-urge perfectly, but maybe knitters who 1)are basically process knitter and 2)like intricated pattern for not to be bored might not equally happy as I am. I am really happy with this so simple-yet-unbeliebably fashionable and cool pattern and the outcome.
Aaaand my stockinette journey is lasting, so my next project is this:
This is stockinette heaven, yey! Black Dog Knits and Knitopolis tried this pattern, and looks they had kind of difficulties to make peace with it. I don't know if I can make it, I just give a try. The photo of yarn corns of the other day was for this sweater, Zena.
And as this garment should be light, I think even if I start now at the beginning of spring, it would be useful...(I think about summer vacation in France. Always I need a cotton sweater there in the morning and evening even if in July and August) My assortment of fiber is so far fine cashmere, fine alpaca and fine linen & cotton.
I will cast on anytime now, but I have "Mountain Form" test knitting to be done, and another test knitting for new sock yarn...all are, however, simply pleasure and I feel lucky for it.

I really really like that sweater. I do hope your feeling better soon too. Coughing always seems to tire people out. It just means you need to do more knitting.
