It's 10:53pm and I have finished the Dulaan sweater. If I can get Willow to sit still for a few moments tomorrow, I may even have a live model to show it off in. Now that this is finished, I can dedicate myself to finishing Jaime's baby present, seeing as she was so kind to remind me she only has 10 weeks left in her pregnancy!!!!
The yarn is a Red Heart one pound ball in a magenta/orange/yellow/red colourway - sure to please any 6 year old girl. The pattern comes from Ann Budd's handy sweater pattern book (you know - the one with the multiple sizes and gauges - I'm too tired to get it and write the proper name). It's raglan, knit in one piece to the armpits, sleeves knit separately, then joined again to complete the raglan. I just did the same rib as the cuffs and waist for the neck so it would stand up a bit - I hate too-tight necks. I read in the latest Vogue Knitting that the Dulaan project is ending this summer so they can concentrate on other needs in Mongolia - so I need to make sure I get this package off in time.
Day 21: (Another fact courtesy of Alton Brown) British sailors ate pickles to combat scurvy.
He had a great recipe for curried pickled cauliflower that I want to try...
